For those who have passed the entry level CC exam, can you let me know if the online material provided by ISC is enough to study for the exam?
Are there any recommended books or supplemental material that can be used such as practice exams etc?
I have 15+ years of experience in IT, from Tech support, to IT Support, to SAP Basis Administration. I am transitioning to CyberSecurity.
My years of experience made this a bit easier, however I did have to study. I went through ALL of the self paced online training that ISC2 offers for the CinC, and then I supplemented it with
Mike Chapple's Linkedin course for the CinC. About halfway through the Chapple course, I abandoned it and scheduled the exam for the next morning. I felt that I was ready.
On the pre course assesment (self paced online thorugh ISC2), I got a 69%. I passed all of the chapter quizzes for the most part, maybe except for 1, which I retook and passed. I took the post course assesment twice, 84% first, then 88%. I felt I was ready but still continued on the the Chapple course since.
I got the free voucher with the million certification program the ISC2 is providing, and also got all of the self paced content for free. I got the Chapple course for free as well through my company's log in on via linked in.
This exam is not difficult, however during the test there were some questions that were not in any of the content. They threw me off a bit. I believe these were dummy questions that don't count towards my final score, but not 100% sure of that. Good luck. My suggestion is do all of the self paced online stuff, take the post assesment and make sure you make above an 80%. Supplement it with something else if need be, and then go for it.
I also didn't clear the exam whereas, I cleared my chapter exams more than 80 to 85%. However, What I understood from the exam the questions are quite tricky. They are not the same pattern as in chapter exams. Hence, try to understand the exam and then opt for the correct answer.
I studied all ISC materials include Video and resources for CC certification and got 87 score in preparation exam but I failed in the real exam this week. I faced to some questions in exam which never heard about those in resources
