I'm in the exact same boat so I'm interested in any advice. I failed it yesterday and felt I understood each question. Going back reading over the same books will not help my understanding any further. I think if anything, it is exam technique maybe that I need to work on but I passed CISSP last year and am familiar with the style. I probably put more hours into this one but was less confident than CISSP due to the lack of good practice questions. The official ones are very easy. I scored 80+ in cccure and Kaplan sets. Think if I dont do something different, it will be same result next time around but I'm not sure what!
OK, sorry, missed that it was CCSP, but, still, these would probably help.
Thanks for the tips, much appreciated. Anything additional is worth a try - that book looks very good so will definitely work through it. I'm sure a lot of the principles apply to cloud and the updated version may even have cloud specific stuff included.
I have the student guide from the self paced online course. I found the course terrible in that it was just a guy reading this manual back to me for hours but I do think there is good information within the guide that is not within the official CBK - so I'm going to focus a little more on this one next time. Also think I will get the CCSK under my belt in the meantime and have something to show for the last 6 months' work.
