Cracked the CCSP Exam in first attempt

I am pleased to share that I cleared CCSP exam yesterday 26/06, must admit it was one of the toughest grueling experience focusing on exam for 4 hours. apart from technical capability this test your patience to sit & focus in one place for 4 hrs !! I finished the exam with 33 sec to spare had to rush in last question so that I don't run out of time. 


My tip.

- Go through the reference material latest twice.

- Attempt domain wise test questions and work on week domains

Hello Sj, Congrats for clearing the exam. I recently failed the exam and I did prepare like crazy still it was not enough. Do you think buying official isc2 course makes the difference?

Please is the CCSP Official (ISC)2 Student Guide 5th Edition, offered in print version?
