Just passed my CCSP earlier this week.
Did my initial preps on PluralSight and ISC2 Official guide by Sybex.
Most are failing this exam, the majority of my study group members are first-time CISSP passers, but have failed the CCSP. One member even failed CCSP twice.... We had two members take it earlier this week and also failed.
We had a member with years of cloud experience, who was also a CISSP and failed the CCSP. Like I said, before late last year, people were passing left and right, now not so much.
One would assume since CISSP waives all requirements for the CCSP, and requires CPE's that the CCSP wouldn't be more difficult than the CISSP.
