I am a System + Network Consultant with 9 years experience in IT infra. I am very interested in Cyber Security. I have recently requested and has been granted internal transfer in my company to be come an Information Security Consultant. I would like to study CISSP to upgrade myself and be better equip for this new role.
I am looking for study materials and have started the following:
1. CISSP Course - Kelly Handerhan, Cybrary
2. Official (ISC)² CISSP Practice Tests
3. Official (ISC)² CISSP Study Guide
4. Reading NIST Publication
I plan do my first attempt of the exam in 6 months time.
My question is, essentially do I need to purchase [Official (ISC)² Guide to the CISSP CBK, Fifth Edition] ? Is it strongly recommended for my study? I have read mixed reviews about it, unlike the official study guide, many have commented that the guide to the CISSP CBK, wordings and vocabulary used, at times causes confusion.
Thank you for reading my post.
