Re: CISSP Exam Failure Feb 2018

That sounds like a good plan.  What I noted in my CISSP exam (2011, so a few changes have been made) and CCSP (passed this morning) is that while there are some areas where rote memorization are required, there are many more where synthesis of that information is required.

 

It sounds like you already have the most important element of success: tenacity.  Keep at it and you will be successful.

 

Good Luck!

Re: CISSP Exam Failure Feb 2018

I took test this Saturday 2/24 and failed second time. I have solid knowledge of all 8 domains. But my English is not that strong. I was lost with all ambiguous questions and confusing answer choices. I felt pretty bad that I wasted my hard earned money. I am not sure why ISC2 has to use such language. In real time we do not come across this kind of ambiguous sentences. I have decided not to try anymore.

Re: CISSP Exam Failure Feb 2018

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.

Re: CISSP Exam Failure Feb 2018

Hi.. Don't worry. Things will be fine. My suggestion to you is read the questions at least three times and locate the key word, which will help you figure out what they are trying to ask. One exercise you can mentally visualize a scenario where if you are asked to set the questions for the exam, what all factors you will consider, what domains and areas you will pick... this will train your mind to see the other side of it which will complete the circle. My prayers will be with you next time to clear the exam. Goodwill, Sandron M J
