Exam scheduled...

...for July 14!  

 

That was the earliest I was able to schedule it for.  I was hoping for April.  The challenge will be to stay motivated.  Guess I'll start re-reading the books.

Re: Exam scheduled...

So far I have read the Sybex Official Study Guide and the McGraw Hill All In One.

Also read the CSA Guidance

Supplementing with NIST documents and various blogs, articles, etc...

Currently working my way through the Sybex Official Practice Tests.

Check to see if there are other nearby centers.  Back when I took mine, I was able to find a earlier slot at a testing center that was an additional 20 miles away.

Thanks for the heads up I did not know schedule was booked out that far. I just started to study for it. I grabbed a spot for July 7th, at least in the location close to me.

Good luck!!

 

I find that when checking the site for openings, it's best to check daily. Some might pop up closer to the timeframe you are looking at. I'm hoping to take mine early April!

Re: Exam scheduled...

Hello Chogan,

Thanks for the post, July will before you know it.

I just completed the online CISSP self-learning course.

I planned to begin review over the next 90 days the work that I have studied.

If you are open to study Domains to keep information fresh, let me know.

Based on your test timing, 90 days should work for both of us.

Re: Exam scheduled...

I could test in June if I add an hour to my drive during rush hour for an 8:00 AM exam.

 

I'll just wait the month.  My exam is at 12:00 PM, giving me time to a relaxing morning and plenty of time to get their early.  It's about 45 minutes away.

Re: Exam scheduled...

Back in March I was complaining that I had to wait until July 14 to take the exam.  Now it's 4 days away and I'm wondering if I'm ready!  In that time I re-read the Sybex Study Guide and the All In One as well as the CSA Guidance.

Re: Exam scheduled...

I provisionally passed today!

 

Questions were pretty straight forward (for the most part) and stuck to the exam outline.  No surprises or topics I was not familiar with (although some I wished I had dug a little deeper into).  I was pretty confident when I clicked the End Test button and was happy to see the Congratulations on the printout.
