    How was the CEHv8? Did you feel you had enough time to answer all of the questions? What is your level of experience with information security?

    Congrats!
    Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

    4 hours for 125 questions was too much. Since most questions were theoretical (not much of analysis), I could finish them in 2 hours!

    Agree with SecurityFreak .. 4 hours is too generous! I also completed the exam in 2 to 2.5 hours though I did not score as high as SecurityFreak icon_smile.gif
    I think partly it was because of how the exam was administered. That is, you will be given x minutes to complete Part 1. When you get into Part 2 of the exam, you will no longer be able to return to Part 1. I think, we are all so excited to proceed to the next phase so, we ended up having lots of excess time ...

    I am planning CISSP in December -- 5 months from now. I will get only max 1 to 2 hours to study for it. Is it realistic target ?

    On the average, 5 months should be sufficient. Have a look at the CISSP AIO 6th edition book from Shon Harris so you can gauge if you can finish studying all the 10 domains within the given time frame.
