Maynard, David C - GMRT-EST

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

I passed on 6/13. I also took the entire 6 hours. I thought the test was grueling [make sure you take energy bars and water!], but mostly pretty straightforward. It did have some tricky questions though; there were several questions I had to read very carefully to figure out what was being asked. Mark those and come back to them on your second pass. Time management is critical, and using common sense is a good tip.

Here is a list of things I did:

The CCCure.org site has a lot of resources that I found very useful:
*I downloaded a couple of overviews - Michael Overton and Justin Gibson - and read them over several times.
       
https://www.cccure.org/download-details-59.html&title=Overly_Updated.pdf.zip

       
https://www.cccure.org/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownloaddetails&l
id=24&title=CRAM%20Study%20guide%20on%20the%2010%20domains%20of%20the%20CBK
*I watched Clement's presentation at
https://www.cccure.org/flash/intro/player.html; it's excellent.
*I did at least a 60-question practice test from books or the CCCure site every day for a couple months. Make sure you understand the answers to any questions you missed and add notes about them to your cheat sheet.
*Do several 250-question exams so you get a feel for timing.
*I bought Clement's scenario questions; they were very helpful!

I also
*joined a study group in January that was an overview, and when that one was finished, I joined one that was more in-depth *made my own last-minute flash cards and study guide for things that I found tricky - note: acronyms help! Here's one for types of cryptography:
DEER MRS H CARBIDS

Asymmetric: encrypt with 1 key, decrypt with other Key exchange, Confidentiality, Nonrepudiation, Integrity
D - Diffie-Hellman
E - El Gamal: DH +nonrepudiation        
E - ECC
R - RSA

Hash- one-way algorithm, no key
M - MD5
R - RIPEMD (160)
S - SHA (3)

H - Haval (v)

Symmetric: Encryption, one key
C - CAST
A - AES: 128k, 10r; 192k, 12 r; 256k, 14r R - RC 4, 5, 6 B - BLOWFISH: 23-448k, 64bit block I - IDEA : 128k, 64bit block D - DES-64-bit block, 16r S - SERPENT

Another resource: I watched a video at SANS by Eric Cole called "How to be Successful at Passing the CISSP." [You have to have a free SANS account and you might have to search for it.]
https://www.sans.org/webcasts/successful-passing-cissp-95594 

I have a SafariBooksOnline account; for books I used *Shon Harris AIO / test questions book *Dummies' Guide to the CISSP *Eric Conrad's books--I found his books the most useful because they're so concise.

Good luck!
Kalmia

I passed mine on 4th June and entirely agree with all your comments. I also took nearly 6 hours and found it really tough, feeling right at the end of the test that I had failed and was surprised by the 'pass' result. Also agree about the content being a lot of BCP/DR but then in the real world, this is part of the job!

Best wishes

Good day Negash,

There is no single resources that will allow you to pass the CISSP exam.
It has to be a mix of experience, studies, quizzes, reading, and all of the above.

I would recommend you start by watching my flash presentation that I have completely revamped and updated a few weeks ago.  It will coach you and
answer any questions they may have about becoming a CISSP.   It is
completely updated with the latest information about the CBK and the
examination process.   It is a must watch for any CISSP Student.  You can
find it at:

*https://www.cccure.org/flash/intro/player.html


2.  I have also updated my list of TIPS and TRICKS on how to become a
CISSP.   You can find it at:

https://www.cccure.org/article1477.html

The resources mentioned at the link above are from my CCCure.Org web site.
.


3.  Last but not least, I have just produce a set of Scenario Based questions that is very complete.  I am selling it on my shopping cart at:

https://www.cccure.com/cart/categories/CISSP-Scenario-Based-Questions/


*
*REBATE FOR THIS MAILING LIST MEMBERS

*
*I have created a rebate code good for the next few weeks for the list members.  It is:  CISSPSTUDY

*
*Use the code at checkout time to get an instant 25% off.

*
*Best of luck in your studies
*
*
Best regards

Clement

- do not spend too much time on questions you are not sure about (you can come back to them later), use common sense when answering the questions. I had a lot of questions related to BCP/DRP; surprisingly, not too many technical (detailed) questions.

It did have some tricky questions though; there were several questions I had to read very carefully to figure out what was being asked. Mark those and come back to them on your second pass. Time management is critical, and using common sense is a good tip.

I also took nearly 6 hours and found it really tough, feeling right at the end of the test that I had failed and was surprised by the 'pass' result. Also agree about the content being a lot of BCP/DR but then in the real world, this is part of the job!
