All together I must have done approx 10K + practice question so as to make every concept very clear and so as to eliminate the incorrect answer in exam and that eventually helped during exam. Study mode with enough questions practice tunes our mind for exam that needs you to figure out the best solution for the given situation. I read many blogs for opinions about what formula should be used to become a CISSP on google. I will tell you right here there is “NO MAGIC FORMULA”.
The formula is completely different for everyone. However, there is a common denominator "SACRIFICE".
As soon as you are ready to make CISSP your one and only goal then only you will succeed. You have to put everything aside and invest quality time and hard work. It’s that simple and it’s the only path to the Certification.
Bottom line is everyone is capable of sacrifice and capable of earning the CISSP.
Thanks to everyone, you people were a vital part of my journey. Thanks for helping me to keep up with my preparation. Thank you very much for taking out your precious time for reading this lengthy note.
Thanks Everyone!!! Good luck on your journey.
