CCSP exam pattern- any change?

All,

Can we still mark the questions for later review  during exam, or there is any change in test pattern.

Please suggest.

Re: CCSP exam pattern- any change?

It's still a linear exam (i.e. non CAT) but the answer really depends on how you take the exam.

 

If you're doing it at a Pearson VUE test centre, then you will be able to go back and review.

 

If you're doing it online as part of the online testing pilot, then you can't go back and review:

I'm not sure if it's explicitly stated anywhere official that you can go back and review questions when taking ISC2 exams inside a Pearson VUE test centre.

 

However, having sat many ISC2 exams myself including the CCSP - all linear taken in a Pearson VUE test centre - it was always the case you could go back and review.

 

Personally, I am not a fan of reviewing - I feel if you're not 100% sure of an answer, your first choice is often the correct one anyway.

The option to flag questions or go back has been removed. Took the CCSP in a Pearson Vue centre in February and was not able to do any of that.

It is mentioned in the ISC2 examination FAQs that you can't skip a question and go back :

Correct, the FAQ has been updated since this thread was originally created.

 

For the avoidance of any doubt, not being able to go back and review questions/answers is now the new standard across all ISC2 exams and exam formats:

Took the CCSP exam late April 2021 at a Pearson VUE testing center. I did not have the options to mark and review or go backwards in the test.
