Re: After 1 year studying CISSP i failed WHY

"Near" means you failed the domain, but you were close to passing.

Re: After 1 year studying CISSP i failed WHY

sure, since you are already familiar concepts, cia, bia, but may be you missed the idea behind the scene like, is this the situation that everyone has a benefit from your decision, is it completely solve or resolve situation or just you may expected to do so?. i think sybex and shon harris books are great (both are 8th ed.) also mike chapple and david miller is good. safari books may help lots of questions about cissp.

also which domains you are below proficient, i think you may not concantrate well enough to catch the main idea like, what is the most, weakest, except one like questions. since those are not technically solved they exercise how you precise and careful you are, is concentration is well enough to make right decision in short time durations, also felt like under pressure, best regards

Re: After 1 year studying CISSP i failed WHY

Best success I have seen, and I have had to get more than a dozen of my employees certified and myself, is a boot camp. But shop around because some are better than others. Sounds like you have the foundation, you need the fine tuning. Certain boot camps will give you a free voucher to retake and let you sit the class again if needed for a year for free. So if you test and fail, you will know the areas you really need to focus, and the instructors are great to break it down in such a way the light bulb goes off and you get it.

I am sorry you failed your exam. But this should not be a reason for you to give up, but to learn from the experience. You now have the advantage of knowing how the real exam looks like and you can go back to the material and try to work on your knowledge gap.

I hadn't really thought of that. Thanks for the explanation / exposition.
