CC Exam Preparation

Hello,

 

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?

 

Thanks

Are you saying that nothing in the self pace course materials are on the exam?

Based on your comments, it seems you already have an experience in security. However, students like us are new to it.

You can get it from the isc2 website, it's free.

You are correct.

Good morning,

 

I am sorry that you didn't pass the CC Exam on your first attempt.  How long do you have to wait before you can take the exam again and does the fee you paid to take the exam include a second attempt?

@zbaskervil ,

Regarding your questions of:

 

1)How long do you have to wait, if you fail on your first try of the exam:

The ISC2 retake policy is very clear:  you need to wait 30 days to retake your exam.

You can read more and verify this information under "Retake Policy" at the following links:

 

(ISC)² Certification Exam Results (isc2.org)

 

(ISC)² Certification Exam Process (isc2.org)

 

2) For the CC exam the fee you pay is for one exam, no retake included.

All the best in your CC studies.

@jc2022 ,

For the CC Exam and any other certification exam. 

One study resource is never enough.  You need to dedicate yourself to study with dedication and using several resources.  No certification exam will be passed by studying one resource.

The ISC2 CC course is a great foundation, but it's not enough.  Also, it depends on your security experience and professional background.

You can read more about all the CC exam at the following link:

Best Regards,

Gus
