CASP+ as prep for CISSP.

I went through all the major security Comptia Certs to help my daughter start prepping for her entry level certs then took the CISSP exam.  

Anyone else take the CASP+ prior to CISSP?

 

Do you feel its a good prep step?

Re: CASP+ as prep for CISSP.

I was originally going to take the CASP and then decided to just take the CISSP instead.  They are similar, but totally different.  They both cover a lot of the same information, but the CASP seemed more technical and focused on some of the gritty details, while the CISSP was more broad and touched on a lot of things, but not as granular.

 

Do I think it would be good prep for the CISSP?  Absolutely. Food for thought: While the CASP is recognized as an IAT Level III cert, it only is classified as a level II cert for IAM. CISSP is still considered one of the "gold standards" for information assurance certifications. It is definitely still a good cert to have, but doesn't carry as much weight as the CISSP.

 

Just my .02 cents.
