Passed the CCSP exam this morning. (January 31, 2020). Finished with about 10 minutes left in the 3 hours allotted. Test was harder than I anticipated. More emphasis on forensics and auditing than I had planned for. I had flagged about 25 questions for review but on review only changed about 2 answers from the first pass. Lots of questions with ‘which of the following is the BEST’, ‘which of the following is the first’. I had no idea if I had passed until I picked up the report. I felt this was as hard as the CISSP that I passed two years ago. I used the ISC(2) CBK and the All-In-One Study Guide to prepare plus all the practice tests in Percipio. I looked up a lot of stuff on the internet to supplement the books. Looked through the Jericho paper but did not read. Read 800-145 and 800-146. Started spending a few hours a week last summer but took December 2019 off from studying and then hit it hard all of January. I am now going to re-introduce myself to my wife and spend some quality time with her.
I felt the same after my CCSP but a few chapters into Shon Harris and I realised my depth of knowledge for CISSP. So there is a good overlap but CISSP is way broader than CCSP which is primarily cloud focused.
