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?
Mate, hope you have already registered for the exam the same way you have to register for the study material, I also faced the same issue, however, after spending some time. I managed to register. You just play around. If we can talk, I can demonstrate over the call.
You can find me at Linkedin Anand Sharma.
I have cleared this exam just yesterday, and one of my mentors who is preparing for CISSP asked me the same aforementioned question. I just recommended she revise the material she is using to prepare for CISSP to clear the CC exam. I hope you understood. 🙂
Note: I completely understand that the questions asked in the (ISC)2 CC Cert exam are quite different from the Pre and Post-Course assessments, primarily, to test how good the candidate is in solving those practical questions judiciously using human cognition. No need to fear, they are just tongue-twisted kind of questions and hence require more thinking to select the correct answer.
Pro-Tip: (ISC)2 is well-known in the Security community to conduct exams where all the options in every MCQ seem correct. The candidates are to use their human cognition to select the Most Appropriate and Most Accurate answer (or option) among all those correct options.

Disclaimer: I apologize if my reply does not resonate with the negative outlook of candidates for this exam. I understand and empathize with the candidates who have appeared and weren't successful. Please don't believe in any question dumps available online. (ISC)2 is too clever to provide questions similar to the Question Dumps available online.
Hi guys, i took the exam today and i cleared it. I am not from an extended IT background but what i will say is the study material from ISC2 was very beneficial to my passing. I also made sure i did all the questions at the end of the study material. If you go through the study material like twice, you should be good. All the best to those who are yet take it.
@otter325, Flashcards were helpful, but the questions in the CC exam are twisted ones. Hence focus on learning concepts inside-out so you can answer those twisted questions.
