How Gokulraj Cracked His CISSP Exam

November 12, 2017

 

Dear All,

 

This is Gokulraj with 6 six year of experience in Security domain.

 

I passed the exam provisionally on October 01,2017.

 

Thank you very much Luke Ahmed and everyone on this group for your guidance and support.

 

“If I can pass then any one can pass”  - this is old saying.  If you understand the concept then for sure you will pass.

 

Prepared for almost 5 months with average 5-6 hours /day. Practiced almost 8000 practice question and used the below materials.

 

You can find Do & Don’ts before the exam in : https://www.studynotesandtheory.com/blog/category/How-To-Crack-The-CISSP

 

What I wanted to share is “what are the materials available for free”  and few tips.

Few Tips:

 

Read the question carefully and look for the KEYWORD what they are asking.

 

Risk management, BCP/DR, SDLC  - Very important domain

 

Understand the concept, memorization won’t help you in any way.

 

Take sufficient break during exam, you can’t sit for 6 continuous hours - Time constraint is very important.

 

Have a good sleep before the exam.

 

 

All the very best to all of you , ping me on Facebook if you have any doubts.

 

 

Cheers,

Gokulraj
