Passed CISSP today and wanted to shout out to all my fellow members here on techexams, Thank you all, without you I would not know where to start with self studying. I have read 20+ threads and collected information on how to practice for this beast of an exam.

I previously posted my study plan but in the end I made a lot of adjustments.

I studied for three months on and off and rescheduled the exam from 02-08-2013 to 29-08-2013.

The last month I began to eat several books/documents for breakfast. My studyplan and ratings per material.

Transcender Prep Guide (read once) A-
CISSP Study Guide-Eric Conrad (read four times) A+
M Overly notes (read once) B
CISSP Summary v1.1 (read once) B
CISSP for Dummies (read once) B
CISSP Seminar Review handbook (read difficult domains) A+
11th Hour (read weak domains) A

Transcender (500q) B
Paid CCCure (250+q) B
CISSP Seminar questions (125q) A+
CISSP Study Guide (all chapter questions) B

I did not use the Shon Harris boxed set at all, to verbose.

Next up is the ISSEP exam which will make me the only ISSEP certified in the Netherlands and will give me the knowledge and tools to grow in my role within the company I work for.

Again thank you all!!!

I'm going to enjoy time with my family now and afterwards turn on my PS3 *collecting dust* again to play "the last of us" second playthrough.

    Congrats on the pass. I am going through VCP right now but will be looking at ISSEP after that. Best of luck.
