Studying Plateau

Just wanted to reach out and see if there are any good suggestions for some additional studying. I am currently hitting a point in my practice tests where I am hitting about 80-85% and just cant seem to break through. Any suggestions that might help in bringing that number up a bit more? I have my test less than a month away. 

 

Thanks!

Re: Studying Plateau

Keep a regular routine of study. Part of this is knowing how you learn. For myself, I get up early every day, and give myself at least 100 questions. Then I correct my mini exam, and research the answers. For the rest of the morning session I read the CBK. In the evening I go over the questions I got wrong again. There is some weirdness in my brain, where no matter what I do, I will always get a couple of questions wrong repeatedly,. I review the question and the answers,  & seem to understand, but I get it wrong again. Frustrating to say the least.

Read "Security Engineering," by Ross Anderson. You should probably buy it, since
it's worth it, but, if you are really cheap, you can find the previous edition posted
online, and read it for free. (Ross is *really* good people :-)
