I took ISC2 boot camp at work sometime back, I have been studying from ISC2 books, cybrary.it and multiple other books. As I mentioned I did very well in all the practice tests (from various sources). I am not sure if ISC2 is testing knowledge in these domains or it is a English test. I personally think if you have ability to interpret those question, study and knowledge in 8 domains does not matter that much.
Sorry to hear you've had such a negative experience. I would imagine that this is a very tough test to take if one weren't a native speaker. The wording can definitely seem ambiguous at times. May I ask if you took any in person preparation classes prior to taking the exam?I can definitely see how expense would be a deterrent in going further in pursuing this particular credential. You would need to make the determination for yourself if trying again was worth it. In the end, it is about the knowledge gained.
Thank you so much. I guess I will have to work on my reading speed also. It is expensive exam. I am thinking it is really worth?
What are your results on the practice tests?
I was getting 65-70% correct and I took the CISSP and earned 577 points.
You should be getting 80% correct or better on the practice exams and then take the test. If you score less than 80% you need more studying.
Some questions are straight memorization and some are applying principles to solving problems.
Never ever give up. "To succeed, you have to increase your rate of failure" This might sound stupid, but it is a truism. Try again my friend.
