    You've got this! Make sure you get a good breakfast (and lunch, if you're taking it in the afternoon), good sleep, and don't overly stress about it

    I got about 4 days to go. Starting to feel much better about the exam now. Got to make sure that I don't drive my crazy about it. So much material to go through. What I think is helping me a lot right now is the Army notes that I'm going through right now and the Darril Gibson Get Certified, Get Ahead website. Either way, I have 4 more days to go. D-Day is May 25 @ 1000.

    Yes, you have a very good chance of passing it on the second try. Just study up on what you felt were your weakest areas and don't wait too long before taking it again. Sign up for it now to encourage yourself to study.

    You are right. In my opinion, lots of the questions asked for common sense answers.

    I didn't feel that the exam was that hard honestly. I work in Information Assurance and my exposure to the situations/questions asked in the exam were a bit over my head because I deal with policy more than anything else. I don't configure VPN's or anything similar. :\ The simulation questions wrecked me bad. The drag and drop ones weren't too bad. I wasn't really upset that I failed, just very disappointed; unlike last year when I failed the CISSP I was a train wreck.

    I literally don't know where I want to go from here certification wise. I want to get into Pen Testing but most places want you to have experience and I don't have it. CASP is more of a hands-on type of cert and that's where the issue lies; my experience is quite minimal in that regard. Just feeling really perplexed at this point.

    Pen testing requires hands-on technical experience too. To penetrate boxes you really need to know how the software and firmware running on hardware works. This is why good pen testers (Red Team) are also software developers. CASP is more of a security operations cert for the Blue Team people. It's good for pentesters to have Blue Team experience and know how host and network defenses work too. I think CASP is more beneficial to pentesters than, say, CISSP/CISA/CISM.

    I think that's where my issues lies. Security Operations? I have some exp in it but not enough to pass the CASP exam. Man, this sucks. I looked at my score report and nearly EVERY exam objective was listed that I scored poorly on. I felt like a ******* moron. Still do.

    Have you thought about the ISACA CSX-P?

    Sorry to hear that. CASP is way more technical than CISSP and w/o experience is hard to pass. I thought you are aware about experience requirements.

    Dude, the test is hard. As I've said in may threads, it's tougher than the CISSP. Don't feel bad man. Get right back on that horse.

    From what I know, they're putting their resources behind CSX-P from a marketing and test takers perspective. Too many certs, not enough people to sit them.

    I want to say CISSP is pretty massive road block for them.

    It would be a good idea, from my perspective, to position their certifications in such a fashion that it creates an easily understood ISACA certification road map. Meaning, CSX-F > CSX-P > CISA > CSX-E > CISM. Then, they would need to market it in such a fashion that hiring managers will see the value of that road map. Until then, it will be the oddity in the bunch, a curiosity to many managers.

    CISA is more GRC than it is Cyber Sec base.

    My biggest to complaint to ISACA at the last conference was that everything they have to offer is expensive! Even as a member, it's expensive!

    It would be great if they could create their own Masters degree program based on Information Assurance that includes their certs and training in a way that makes more use of the Membership. I believe SANS has something like this already.

    That's because ISACA expects businesses to buy their goods and services and not individuals. Because "you get what you pay for," it's gotta be expensive to be good!
