I passed the SSCP this morning with it starting at 8am.

I haven't got my actual score as i have to submit my cv with relevant experience and complete the endorsement form, I guess this is usual practice

My experience of the exam is that the questions were very different from the d.Gibson end of topic questions, l found this with the security+ exam as well. The best advice I can advise it to keep upbeat and keep calm, as after 10 questions I wanted to go home.

I used the D.Gibson book and Trainsignal videos, and recently passed the security+ exam as well(I think this proved the biggest help).

    Did you use the Official (ISC)2 SSCP Guide for studying?

    No, I used the McGrawhill AIO and train signal videos.

    If you already have the security+, I would seriously consider missing this one out. It does go into a little bit more depth on some subjects, but just not enough to warrant the £30 for the book and £175 for the test.

    good luck on what you choose.
