Re: Failed the new CISSP CAT exam on April-07-2018

I took the exam 3 times passing just past Apr 4th 2018. The first 2 time I was using an outdated Shon Harris text, its a great reference book but I would not consider it sufficient to take the exam. The second time I listened to CBK nuggets while commuting and they really help to reinforce things. I ending up getting a 695 on my second attempt. So I understand the frustration you feel and I considered moving on to a different cert.  I finally decided to take the 6-day course offered by Training Camp. It took me some time as I had to do this out of pocket and I don't have a company sponsoring me. I have taken other training boot camps and this is really different. Others I have been in focus only on teaching you the answers to the test where this course helped you understand the fundamentals. There is a great deal of information that is given out during those 6 days, almost like drinking from a fire hose. I think the my saving grace was I am also finishing my Masters in Cybersecurity, so I have been living the fundamentals for the good part of a year. I can say the class really helped me, I took my exam the Tuesday after the completing the class and I passed right after a 100 questions.

But that does not make sense. If (ISC)2 is The certifying official and their own study guides and exam practice materials are not in alignment, then that is NOT okay! Their education department is creating materials NOT in alignment with the certification exam. No one should have to buy multiple books, especially when you buy them from the certification official.

You all don't make me feel comfortable taking this exam for a 4th time.  I failed 3 times not by much, but failed.  I was thinking of doing it a 4th time and now see the CAT test and your responses.  Should I even try this time?  I have a CSSLP, is a CISSP worth it?

What are the areas that you failed?

Re: Failed the new CISSP CAT exam on April-07-2018

Depends on the career you want. CCSLP is about software/application
security, as you know. CISSP is about information security in general
across the business functions - from policies, theory, implementation,
planning, management, review, etc. Not specific to just software
development. So, only a CISSP cert for a software dev job would be less
desirable than the CSSLP. On the other hand, if you’re looking to get into
a management role or a general cyber security role, the CISSP would
definitely be a desirable complement to the CSSLP.

It won't, just the default mail signature.

Re: Failed the new CISSP CAT exam on April-07-2018

I took the new CAT today and didn’t pass. I used two different books, took an5 day boot camp and used three different practice tests since November and still failed. The new format didn’t cover anything from the books I read...it was more vague concepts, but nothing direct, except maybe access control methods. Pretty dissappointed. I think if I had done the older version of the test I would have passed.

Sorry to hear you didn't pass, which boot camp did you take, I highly recommend Training Camp. I think they are the only group endorsed by ISC2. I can agree with your assessment of the test, you have to have a real grasp of Infosec. This test was unlike my other certs because while there is a correct answer, it wasn't always obvious, a majority of the time it was the most correct answer. You really have to read all the answers.
