So i passed the CASP! i wish i knew by how much but oh well. So i have been doing some reading on here, and am thinking about the CISSP next. From what i read some of the content from the CASP would apply to the CISSP. WOuld it make sense to do the CISSP as soon as possible so i dont lose any of that? How much more will be required to get to the CISSP level? I just purchased the Shon Harris Sitxth Edition CISSP book to work with. Any thoughts would be great! Thanks.

    Congrats on the pass.

    As for your question, yes there is a lot of overlap between the two. I would recommend pursuing the CISSP sooner rather then later. The Shon Harris book is a tough pill to swallow, if you start finding that the book is hard to read because of your current knowledge level swith to the Conrad book and I think you will be ready for the test fairly quick.

    I have to agree that the Shon Harris AIO is dense and a tough and boring read; so much so that I found it tough to make things stick in my head. The CISSP for Dummies book was an easy read and really explained some of the tougher topics well. I followed that up with the Conrad book just for good measure, though I think the Dummies book may be enough on its own to get you over the passing mark.

    You can get an idea how many you got wrong by the number of "knowledge statements" missed on the pass sheet.

    Also, probably. There's overlap with CASP and CISSP/CEH. So, it wouldn't be a bad idea.
