Here goes my exam preparation journey debrief:

I started the CISSP journey about 8 months back (with Sybex version 7). Since the subject was vast and I am not great at cramming, I wanted to space it out. Also, I relied on lot more of audio/video content compared to reading books intensely.

My approach was as follows:

Phase 1: Getting familiar with the overa...

I passed the CISSP on 1 Oct 2019!

Wow, what a process.

I began semi-formally studying about a year prior off-and-on. I do, however, read about tech and security constantly.  I started formally/scheduled studying a couple of months out an hour or two per day. Then the month of Sept I shut everything else down (for the most part) and dedicated all time to stu...

My CISSP journey...

I have around 6 years in IT security, but over 25 years in IT (including development). So 10 months ago I thought a quick bootcamp would be the best way to pass the CISSP exam. 6 very painful days, 3 hours and 149 and a half questions later, I realised I was wrong.

For weeks after, I thought about retaking, but the beating I took the fi...

The golden package has finally arrived!

I wouldn't say that the exam was easy. It was in deed a roller coaster ride where I felt confident while attempting a few questions but there were a few which were totally impetuous.

The only key to the success is hard work where one should focus on learning the concepts, however apart from that ones analytical abilit...

Can not believe that I am a winner of the battle today. Cleared my CISSP exam during 8 months with hard study.

Limit time to my family, no hangout and drinking beer with my friends, no having the soccer match on the weekend. Everything is focused on the exam. I would like to share my experience during my studying time. Hope that it can help you find a litt...

Timeline:

In 2016 I started thinking about getting CISSP, I checked the certificate requirements, books, other people journeys...etc

I was intimidated by the books size, yeah thousands of pages is not pleasant to read.  I had initial plan to study for it during my maternity leave, yup, was a big mistake,  underestimated new...

Romans 8:28 (NASB): And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Guys/Gals,
I passed this thing June 23, 2019, and I honestly thought it was a glitch when the test ended and I saw congratulations on the paper. Truthfully, there were times I wanted to get up and wal...

Study Resources and  some insight

1. Cover to Cover Read --> Sybex 8th edition

[Took two months to read this page by page and make notes. Some say read once and take notes 2nd time, how ever 

I feel to read once and take exclusive notes to save some time for not to come back to reread again.]

2. CBK 4th edition  

[Read weak domains like scan through metho...

My CISSP Journey

Hi Friends, I have been a passive lurker in this group for a long time . Have been thinking of doing this certification for more than 5 years but could not commit dedicated time due to being lazy and family commitments.

After changing permanent job to a contract job and only earner in family, got the motivation to commit time for this exam....
