In six years G. W. Bush and Texas executed 131 prisoners, of whom
43 had defence attorneys sanctioned for misconduct at some point
40 involved the defence presenting no evidence or one witness
29 included psychiatric testimony deemed unethical/untrustworthy
23 included jailhouse informants, and
3 in which the defence lawyers slept during the trial.

Re: Going to start studying - From People Who Passed Which Books Should I Buy / Test?

Self study is the hardest way to pass the test. I took a class and only about 50% of the people in the class passed. Just really focus and re-read all the info. I used the (ISC)2 CISSP Certified Information Systems Security Professional Official Study Guide 8th Edition that you can get on Amazon for about $50. I also watched a ton of YouTube videos and used the (ISC)2 study guides. When you pass they don't tell you the score, but I felt very confidant when I hit the last button on the exam and think the study guide and tests really set everything up nicely.

Are there any online tests / sites you used that were a good reflection of the test?

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of
the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by
the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's
death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and
therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls
for thee. - John Donne (1572-1631) Devotions upon Emergent Occasions
