Re: What Strategy did you use to prepare for and eventually pass your CISSP?

I attended a SANS Bootcamp in 2003 followed by 8 week with a study-buddy. 

 

Another tactic I used was scheduling the exam so I had a hard deadline.  If I would have waited until I was "fully ready" I may still be waiting.

I worked in several roles in the industry to build a broad range of experience, then attended a boot camp with the exam on the final day.
Having actual experience is key, in my opinion.
