And I've passed, on my first attempt.

Having only ~10 months of real info-sec experience, I can definitely say it was a challenge. It was surprisingly not as technical as I assumed, even having read other's comments. It really challenges your core understanding and thought process around the security domains. There were a few questions that were obviously beta/not graded, as there was no possible answer and were most likely designed for discouragement, etc. It was a good challenge, and I'm even a little surprised that I passed.

Overall it took me about 5 hours, not including 3 breaks. I had about a total of a half hour of time away from the test to eat/re-focus my mind.

As far as study tips go, I think a true understanding of all the basics is required. I don't think there is really anything I can recommend that you focus on other than how each domain operates and its relation to business functionality as a whole.

CISSP down, Stanford cert to go!

    Glad to hear you are through. Mine is on 30th of June. Have any suggestions I need to hang onto?. When you talk about technical, how technical would you grade questions from the Telcom domain, on a scale of 1to10?

    They're really isn't much technical detail on the exam. There is a reason why there are video courses and teachers that guarantee near a 100% pass rate. Take a peek at some of those videos. Watch the CBTNuggets course for the CISSP, it doesn't really go into any depth past what they explain there.

    Eh. Keith Barker isn't my favorite instructor, but it's really the only updated video material there is for the CISSP.

    As it happens... I quite like Keith's CISSP course, just that i don't think it covers all there is to know.
