Does anyone know if there's any movement in terms of books for ISSAP?

This is pretty sad that ISC2 points to 10yr old book and there was no update to it. Things have changed so massively over the past few years.

Sadly doesn’t seem like there is an update book or material. I have access to the self study course but have yet to start it, also I’m not confident that it will cover all the material required for the exam, it’s disappointing for people who wish to progress their certification

Plenty of people have passed this exam in the absence of an up to date CBK.

 

It just requires a change to the exam prep method of reading the CBK and then doing a bunch of practice tests (as there aren't any good ones of those either the last time I checked) that many used to pass their CISSP and/or CCSP.

 

Even if there was an up to date CBK, it would still be recommended to supplement your education and experience using items from the suggested reference list, so my advice would be just to go straight to that.

 

  1. Review the current exam outline and identify areas where you think you need better knowledge.
  2. Check the ISSAP suggested references looking for any that might help you plug the gaps.

Yes, you'll probably end up having to read more than one reference, but that's just how it goes.

 

Good luck!

Still, the newest material is from 2017... But it's what we have 🙂
Another question related to the study material, is there any kind of "CISSP-ISSAP Official ISC2 Student Guide", in the same standards as the CISSP and CCSP trainings (for students who have completed official ISC2 training)?

Hi @Kaity and @AndreaMoore

 

Would you be able to advise the estimated date for the new ISSAP CBK release date if there is anyone working on it? 

 

Also, will it be possible to purchase a PDF note scripted version of the current Online Training Official (ISC)² CBK Training Seminar for the ISSAP for people who are keen but unable to pay a hefty price of USD 2,669.75 to study for it? I understand that the other online self-paced training from the (ISC)² e.g., for CISSP is around USD 900. Thanks. 

 

 

Best Regards,
George Hlaing

I asked for you and we do not have a new ISSAP CBK in the works or a PDF available for the training.
