Re: Checking some answers to a practice test

Thanks for your time to look at and think about these questions I had. I do understand and agree with the process for risk management. I'm just irritated that what we were taught is not what was in the ISC2 materials. These questions are binary: they are right or wrong. So we need to learn it the way it will be asked on the test.

But hey, I passed my test! So, yay. :-)

Re: Checking some answers to a practice test

I completely agree. Unfortunately I had assumed that the class material was aligned with ISC2 material and had learned that. The book was very difficult to read since it was way too wordy and repetitive. They could use a very good copy editor. Think of Hemingway's sparse prose style, or of Edith Wharton going through her manuscripts and deleting the adjectives.

Thank you for your time to look at my questions and provide your thoughts; I really appreciate it.

And hey, I passed the test!!! YAY!

Re: Checking some answers to a practice test

Congratulations and welcome to the CCSP club!

 

I agree with what the others are saying in that these questions in the original post are badly written. For anyone else looking at CCSP practice tests, I'd highly recommend the CCSP Official (ISC)2 Practice Tests:

Thanks for the kind words, Alec! Yes, I'd be glad to offer any insight to issues that you might have with any of the questions from the book.

Re: Checking some answers to a practice test

I'm afraid that's the trick to passing these tests, like all recall based testing.  Personally I think it'd be far more valuable if the tests were applied to more typical real world scenarios, rather than being a case of selecting the best or least worst answers, but that'd require a lot of human judgement in assessing, so I can't see it happening.  There are other InfoSec professional bodies you can join that do require written exams and face to face interview in which you are grilled about your experience.
