I have seen some great strategies and references discussed in this community and was hoping for your similar thoughts related to the CISSP-ISSMP certification. Materials seem to be a bit more limited, but there is also a fair amount of overlap in the domains with CISSP materials.
I have been using the Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CISSP-ISSMP and have enrolled in the official (ISC)2 ISSMP instructor-lead online training course.
What other resources have others pursuing this certification found useful? Have you identified any good practice tests? Thank you for anything you can share about your preparation efforts.
I am feeling your frustration with (ISC)2. This new exam has been out for a long time without any study materials and ambiguous terms for far too long. I feel it is irresponsible for (ISC)2 to change the exam without having appropriate material available to support the change. Many times the course topics have no grounding in the reference material stated by (ISC)2. Here we are in September and no materials are available for this the ISSEP or the ISSAP.
I'm just starting my prep work on this. I have the guides and the CBK, but can't find any practice tests.
At this time there are not any practice tests outside of the self-paced course. Within the course, there is a post-course assessment that is very similar to a practice test. The ISSMP Course is being updated now based off of the last update to the Domains and should be available later in Q4 of this year.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
There is any plans to also update the CISSP-ISSAP ?
Please advice on recommended study material for CISSP-ISSMP self preparation.
I apologize for the delay in my response here. You can find the updated self-paced course available here. You can also find all study materials for the ISSAP listed here.
Apologies for the delay. I am looking to see if we have a more firm date for the release of the ISSMP Online Self-Paced Course as our website is currently listing availability in Q4 of 2018. As soon as I hear back I will update you here. You can find study materials that are currently available here.
I wanted to provide an update to you on the ISSMP Course - the release of this course has changed to Q1 of 2019. The site will be updated soon to reflect this change.
Thank you for the update.
Samantha, do you have any update for people who is waiting for the new official CISSP-ISSMP study materials?
