How Puneet Cracked His CISSP Exam

April 30, 2018

!!OM Namah Shivay!!

 

First Big Thanks to my wife & my family for their continuous support.Honestly I never given importance in studying before in life.

 

Thank You to my Telegram group friends available anytime for help, few I remember right now Ezra, Vaibhav, Joyti, Chirag, Ahmed Bhai, Hero Talentino, Muscle Memory, Konstantin, Nirmala, Sandhya, Monika & many other silent friends, without brainstorming with you guys & continuous guidance on group this was not possible.

 

Luke SNT FB Group & Telegram group is simply Awesome.

 

First Attempt:
Read only Sybex Thrice>>Booked the exam >> Done Practice ques 5500 Questions with 88% in mock tests>>>

 

Reviewed Sunflower Notes & attempted for Exam on wife birthday in Dec 2017 & Failed 652/1000 & still celebrated :-).  Fortunately ISC2 gave me re-chance to give exam again, as there was multiple long Blackouts in b/w 6 hours Exam.

 

Started few things now:
Started Participating on Telegram Group (Budding CISSP). 

 

Tried to give ans based on concept without reading the options & then rereading of question & options.
 

Asking 2 questions why & what benefit? as per previous theme of

exam.
 

Started Reading Process Guide to remember the bullet points & relate that to book detailed explanations.
 

Compare the understanding on important topics from Sybex/AIO/Official Guide & freeze with Official guide.
 

Done Approx 3000 Questions more this time.
 

Frequently Rereading Back Summary & Bullet Points of Primary Book Sybex to remember the concept.
 

Back of book questions AIO/CBK/Sybex.
 

Sybex Reading once again word by word.
 

Watched/Listen Kelly videos/Mp3s more than 10 times approx for better understanding.(Cryptography is mindblowing).
 

Watched Saari Green Videos: very Good indeed.
 

Listen Shon Mp3s & selected youtube skillset videos.
 

Attempted Questions on SNT Member's Portal & SNT videos. Level is Hard but good for actual exam.

 

Final 7 days Simple Plan:
 

Process Guide revision.
 

Sunflower Notes revision.
 

Back Chapters Summary & sybex Bullet Points.
 

Revising Handwritten Notes.
 

Attempted new questions, I have never attempted before, Given 2-3

 

Mock tests to meet target of 150 questions in 120 mins.

 

Actual Exam :
Finished with 100 Questions with remaining time of 60 mins.

 

Exam Toughness seems to me: Medium level.
 

As expected & known, all questions were new which I never attempted before & indirect.

 

Recommendations:-
1) Book the exam (it works like spark in a dynamite)

 

2) Find a quiet place for study.
 

3) Join Telegram Group & most imp. Start Participating.
 

4) Control your Hand clicks: Read questions thrice with options is a catch.
 

5) Read reviews word by word of Sr. candidates who already passed the exam. (Source SNT Website)
 

6) Official Guide Back questions gives the look & feel of real exam.
 

7) Sybex Offical Tests questions are simple & straight Forward, it is suggested to do these Questions in early stages of Preparation on Practice & go for the Harder level later.
