    Agreed. But here is a quick summary of the general advice/study habits users here used to pass the CISSP exam:
    1. Read a CISSP book (shon harris, CBK, Eric Conrad, Sybex, etc.) The conrad book seems to be the least verbose and the sybex one seems to cover more of the new material
    2. Take practice questions (CCCure, Transcender, Mcgraw-hill, studiscope, etc.)
    3. Review the sunflower pdf
    4. If you attend a CISSP bootcamp it should only be as a refresher course and not a start from scratch ground up approach
    5. "Think like a manager" or something
    6. Study various resources
    7. has some good CISSP videos and people seem to really enjoy kelly's teaching
    8. Get a good night's sleep and eat a good meal prior to the exam
    Certs: CISSP, CISA, PMP

    I want to make sure that you understand the boot camps are run by ISC2 employee / contractors so it's not going to be a "home run".
    I really suggest you study every day 2-4 hours for a month then take a boot camp.
    The 2015 version is not a "study and pass" exam. You really have to know your stuff. I just passed mine last month.
