Really excited at the moment!

i spend the complete 6 hours and then i got the congratulations paper!

I really can't believe it. It was a really stressful test! Started and when i reached the #100 i said, nevermind, i am gonna continue till the end, fail, relax for the next 4-5 months and then start studying again. The questions made me think that i did not know anything. that i did not study at all.

i made a 5 minutes break at #150 and continue till the end. There were 2 and a half hours left, I went over my missed questions (around 15) and then i went over my flagged questions (around 200!!!). Surpisingly i found many mistakes that i did during my first run, i tried to complete and correct the flagged questions. 5 minutes left, and i was still at the #100, finished a couple of more and then i couldn't do anything else so i end the test.

I went outside to get my disappointing results but surprisingly i passed.

Guys study, study and again study. Solve as many as virtual exams as possible. Run many 250qs exams.

I have read half of the AIO book but read every tip and highlight.
I solved every question on the AIO cd.
I solved every question in the cccure quizzer and bought the extra subscription, i also got the scenario questions. Very helpful were also the studiscope.
Every point that was unclear i was studying it in the Conrads book.

I can't really say what was more helpful than the other. everything was.

2 days before the exam i read the 11th hour study which is very helpful for a complete reccap.

Thanks to the members of this forum for the great tips.
Thanks to @cdupuis for the quizzer and resources.

    acomo, you can expect to receive an e-mail from ISC2 24-48 hours after passing the exam. The e-mail will simply congratulate you and advise you on the next steps to earn the CISSP certification. Congrats on the pass!

    Congrats and Joel quick question. What has the endorsement timeline been looking like once all of your paperwork is submitted.

    On average, the endorsement paperwork review process takes 5-6 weeks.
