I am in the middle of studying for the above cert. If there are others doing the same. how are you getting on ? I have the 2nd Ed book. The new Outline does not exactly map onto the book. what are doing or what resources are you using to bridge that knowledge gap ? Thanks in Advance. For me what I have done to so far is to look at the new sybex book. Need something in depth without reading a whole book for one topic area.
I utilized the following:
Thanks for this. I was thinking of reading NIST 144.145,146 and 34. Look at the Mindmap and read the Jake Eliasz CISSP-ISSAP Loose Notes. There is also the Sybex and Sari Greene videos to review. By the way have you passed ?
I provisionally passed the exam and I am waiting for the endorsement process to complete.
I took the exam July 2018.
Absolutely brilliant news. I needed to hear that from someone that has just passed. Thanks for you advise. By the way congratulations. In terms of time scale what are we looking at here. I know I wasted tonnes of time on my CISSP. Don't want to do that again. Once more congratulations on your result.
Thanks for the congratulations.
I spent about 2 months studying about 2 hours a day.
I found that reading the NIST documents and white papers gave me exposure to things that helped broaden my knowledge.
In the end, having a solid basis in CISSP knowledge was the most helpful.
The CISSP is "a mile wide and an inch deep". I liken the ISSAP to 1/2 a mile wide and several feet deep.
You definitely need that deeper understanding.
Thanks so much for you candid insight and prompt response. I appreciate you. Looks like there is a lot of work ahead of mine. Thank you. I will hopefully post a good news here in due course. Here goes nothing 🙂
One last thing. Did you use a practice test ? If so which one ? Thanks in Advance
I used the ISSAP iPhone app.
Got you. Thanks once again for your time
