    Lol holy exam objectives

    I think it's worth taking...being offered by CompTIA and all.

    I'm glad to see them making a higher-lever cert

    Dunno. A CISSP costs $600. Is a six-hour written exam with 250 questions. Personally, except for the 8570 push for it, I think it's a worthless exam, but it still has a perception of value and reverance in the IT community.

    I'm not sure what CompTIA can do to raise awareness and change the attitude about CASP. But at the moment, it's a brand new exam with little difficulty. Besides the 8570 requirement, I just don't see the value. Lowering the price to an easy exam will only increase the number of certified people, not increase the reputation (and the possibility of there soon being exam "prep").

    I finally got my CISSP results back (after 5 1/2 weeks) and I passed. The CISSP was only more difficult due to the length and style of the test. The CASP was more technology based, and was a more interesting test to take. If you have the S+ and are studying for the CISSP you will be able to pass the CASP. Sybex is coming out with a CASP book by March, but the Shon Harris CISSP book would do just as well.
