General question for the individuals who have gone through the course and also sat for the CC exam. I decided to sign up for the course as a result of finding this through YouTube. In doing so and for full disclosure, I have what amounts to be maybe better than most entry level knowledge of cybersecurity. My question comes down to, I took the pre-assessment test and scored a passing grade is the pre-test as I will call it, a good foundation for knowing whether I can pass the real CC exam? If it matters for context I scored north of 80% and wanting some feedback.
Thanks for your time and reading this everyone!
I would highly suggest that anyone taking ANY ISC2 exam to go through hundreds, if not thousands, of practice questions from multiple sources to gauge your preparedness. Do NOT rely on just one source!
[Is] the cert exam is required if you go through Coursera for the cc course?
Apologies that this was not answered earlier.
Passing the cert exam is an absolute prerequisite for earning the certification. Although some study-courses, offer a "final exam", that is NOT the same thing. The only exam that will earn you the certification is the one taken at a Pearson Vue testing center.
