Who is actually preparing now for CAP Cert. exam ?

I just finished a (ISC)2 CAP Boot Camp 2 weeks ago and am now preparing for the exam. I'm looking to get my hands and the CBK. Anyone have that info ?

Here is a link to some self-study resources including the CBK book (scroll down to the CAP section).

I took the exam but did not buy the CBK, I took an ISC2 prep course which had it's own text that prepared those in the class. I passed so I can say the exam prep course is great preparation

I am actually taking tmr - 2 Aug. I did not prepare much as I have my other readings.
As mentioned CAP Flashcard could be resourceful.

Maybe you can look at the following resource

Domain 1 

800-37 - Risk Management Framework for Information Systems and Organizations: A System Life Cycle Approach for Security and Privacy

Domain 2, 3 and 4
FIPS 199- Standards for Security Categorization of Federal Information and Information Systems
NIST 800-30 - Guide for Conducting Risk Assessments 
800-53 - Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations
800-53A - Assessing Security and Privacy Controls in Federal Information Systems and Organizations: Building Effective Assessment Plans

Domain 4, 5
FIPS 200 - Minimum Security Requirements for Federal Information and Information Systems

800-160 on security engineering has also information on domain 6, 7 and understand more on the SDLC

Congrats csjohnng! Is there any other insight you'd offer after passing the exam that's different than what you commented above?

I think the CAP test/exam is good and once you are familiar with the material NIST and FIPS mentioned, I believe that should cover 80-90% of the material.
