No, I didn't read the CBK. I just used the two books I mentioned, combined with around 5 years of experience working on cloud related projects.
I have to say I feel the CCSP was the toughest of the three ISC2 exams I've taken, not because of the subject matter, but due to the questions being written in "doublespeak". The CISSP and ISSEP exams I found to be written in plain English so were much easier to comprehend what they were asking.
The Official Practice Test questions are written in a similar fashion to the real test so these helped me prepare to pass the CCSP exam. I would say on a scale of 1-5, the Official Study Guide questions are level 2 or 3, the Official Practice Test questions are level 4 and the real test questions are level 5, but as long as you understand and can apply the fundamental concepts to seemingly abstract questions you should be fine - it's not an impossible test!
Hi - I'll be taking the CCSP quite soon and appreciate all the input and feedback. I apologize if this has already been asked, but can someone tell me if the exam allows you to return to previous questions like the practice exam does?
Thanks In Advance,
I believe it did. I didn't try going back though as it is my philosophy to never go back and change any answers. I think I recall their being a "back" or "previous" button somewhere, but I can't quite remember.
