When you say "NIST pubs" do you mean just in general or were there certain publications you focused on.
I went to the website and there is just so much stuff there.
Congratulation on making such an important step in your Cyber career! When friends and colleagues ask me about using test questions this is what I tell them:
When using test questions, read the question and each answer. Knowing the correct answers is good, but knowing why the other answers are wrong is even better. I had a instructor show me this one, it helped me pass the first time and it has helped numerous friends pass also. If you know why the other answers are wrong, that means you are understanding the material. Don't "cheat" your self by memorizing only answers, you need to understand the material if you are going to pass.
