Passed CISSP 12/04/2018 - few days b4 exam update

Passed the CISSP CAT exam in Hong Kong on 12/4 (before the new exam update on 15/4)

 

Before the exam I took around 2000-3000 practise questions (those commonly suggested by exam takers).

 

Read AIO, Sunflower Notes, many CISSP flashcards from internet.

 

I spent 2.5hours to answer 100 questions. Pass! When I left the exam center, I felt relaxed and all my stress was gone.

 

Quick summary:

 

1. Less technical than I expected.

 

2. Most of the questions you can eliminate at least 2 choices (provided that you studied all of the CISSP content and those terms)

 

3. Some matching questions that may not be found from practice.

 

4. Think like a CISO, not a technical guy! Plan-do-check-act, most of the time "Action" may not be your first thing to do.

 

5. I found some topics looks like new topics (never covered in practise and those notes I read). I believe I could still make them correct. Believe in your own judgement!

 

Yeah! I don't have to study the topics! Good Luck!
