Just passed the CISSP exam today! This was an exhausting exam that takes quite a of mental ability to complete as well as intense and disciplined study habits. I just wanted to thank all of the folks on this site who have been so helpful in sharing their experiences with the ones working hard to achieve the success that you have accomplished! Realistically, your successes are what kept me going some nights of difficult study. As with most of the folks on here, my study material matches most:
AIO 6th ed (I started with the 5th ed, but decided to purchase the ebook after downloading the 3 free pdf chapters from Shon Harris' logical security website - I quickly noticed the updated material and differences) A long read, but WELL worth it!
Eric Conrad's Study Guide 2nd Ed - Concise, but too concise; I felt like it was missing important and relevant material.
ISC2 CBK 2nd ed - Good, but the material was outdated and I fell asleep many times during the read LOL!!
Sunflower pdf - very good
Any other additional reading material I could find (whitepapers, references, etc)!
CCCure.org paid test questions
Transcender test questions
AIO chapter summary questions
Eric chapter summary Conrad questions
Good old-fashioned note-taking - I discovered that I had wrote a novel of around 50 pages of notes when all said and done...
Well worth it. I will now start my endorsement campaign!!
