Passed the CISSP exam, my thoughts on it
I took the CISSP exam last week and passed. I'm not sure if I'm able to talk about what questions in general I saw and did not see. It's not what I expected. I was expecting it to have more in-depth technical questions, but for the most part they were higher level questions. To my surprise, I didn't see any Orange Book questions. I read the AIO book front to cover, and then used the official study guide and the Conrad book to cross reference. I made a lot of flashcards, which really helped me cement the concepts in memory. I also used the CCCure quiz engine, which I recommend. The test was 6 hours long. I finished with about 20 minutes left on the clock. It was pretty intensive. When I finished the exam, I felt as though I failed. When I got the printout that said I passed, a big smile appeared on my face. Now I just need to find a CISSP in my area to vouch for my experience.I'm going to work on the CEH certification right now. I just took the assessment test, and I got a 68%. It seems a bunch of the knowledge you learn from the CISSP can carry over.Good luck everyone!
