Congrats on passing the exam
I am looking to tackle this exam myself in the near future. I have been reading the Official Study Guide in preparation. Currently on my first "reading" of the book. after that I plan on a focused review, taking lots of notes and flash cards along the way before hitting up the practice tests.
I appreciate the thumbs up on the Wiley Test-bank
thanks again for the nice concise review!
For anyone taking the CCSP, or I assume any other exam, the wait time is certainly running up to the 8 weeks they say. I passed the CCSP exam in mid November. I waited for a few days to get the email from them, then sent an email, they looked it up, and said, yes, you passed (of course, I knew that provisionally) so I submitted by endorsement (CISSP, already, self endorsed). I have the confirmation email from 12/3 that everything is submitted. 11/28, this Monday, would be exactly 8 weeks later, and I got my confirmation email at 10:13 last night, so they are taking all the time granted themselves, and might be working late to even get to that!
I started working with OpenStack about 4 or 5 years ago, and have been involved with primarily AWS, secondarily Google, IBM Cloud, and Azure for the last 2. The company I work for now is a cloud based business, which is part of why I wanted to pursue the CCSP.
I provisionally passed CCSP today also. I am already a CISSP so thought would be good to compliment it. I don't have any heavy duty cloud experience and thought this would be a good way to learn new things so I used the Ben Malisow Official Study Guide and the Official Practise Questions on the Wiley test bank. I didn't ever come across or know the mean of the word Motif before studying these guides but I sure did by the end. Plus another very esoteric word like deleterious.
I took the whole 4 hours, i took my time and got pretty hungry after 2 hours ( i should have eaten more in the morning). Some of the vague questions i wasnt sure about the answer so I must have been a borderline pass. I am not in any hurry to have the cert so not not worried about how long it takes for the certification to come through after I do the self certification process.
