    Default Failed again with 688 (last time 658)

    My previous post Failed CISSP with 658. Is it really far from passing?

    My 1st attempt got 658, and 3 weeks later after knowing the result, I took the exam again yesterday. After completing the exam, I was confident to pass, but unfortunately I failed again with 688.

    I was a bit shock coz I felt I could do much better than 1st time. Until now, I didn' really know which questions I answered incorrectly since I checked many unsure questions, and they all were correct. It is quite different feeling from the 1st time that I knew myself which parts I needed to improve.

    I concluded that my weakest issues now are about "non-technical" questions in domain - risk managment, BCP, and Legal (Forensic and ISC2 code of ethics). I used AIO book, but I think this book is not enough for these domains. Could you please suggest me some good sources for this three non-technical domains? Especially where is the full ISC2 code of ethics. I browsed the ISC2 website, I found only a few-page document containing a very brief 4 canons, so I am not sure if it is the full version. Thanks a lot

    So your last post was in August on the 30th; did you not have to wait 90 days before your second attempt? Did you not take enough time between atempts? You should also invest in the ISC2 CISSP book to go along with your AIO; they are very dull reading but are great to look up just those one or two things your unsure of.

    Humm I too have to take the test again, but I am waiting to be better prepared. Not ready to rush! Do you think you had enough time to be ready again?

    Have you done the Cccure questions? There are a few on the Code of Ethics, specifically on prioritization of the canons. Remember that the test most likely won't ask you to list the canons but instead will expect you to know how to apply them.

    Kongi and InfoSecure....Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. I passed third attempt. As cyberguypr says about the Code of Ethics, so it is also true with most of the domains...Practical application of your knowledge is where they get you on this test. When I tanked the test on both previous attempts, I could churn out the driest of the dry in CISSP study material, but I didn't pass. Frustration, anger, depression, acceptance...and then re-take. Attitude is part of it, applying what you know into scenarios is another. You've come this far, go a little further.

    How did you re-take it so close to your previous exam date?

    The OP took it in far less than 30 days, that's why we are confused.
