Most accurate practice exams for CISSP

Hello everyone,

 

I have my CISSP exam scheduled for the end of the month using the new CAT format (fully aware of that so not too concerned - fatal last words I know!).  However I was wondering, based on the experiences of those who have passed, what the best and most accurate practice exams are?

 

I have used:

1) Questions that came with the Official CISSP Study guide Book

2) Questions that came with an online course I bought (uCertify based on the above book with more questions added)

3) Pocket prep CISSP iPhone App

4) CISSP Practice Questions iPhone App

 

I have searched the forum here but could not find a definitive list.

 

Thanks in advance

I heard BOSON was pretty good. Also if you buy CISSP All in One by Sharon Harris there are 1000's of questions that come with the purchase to help you prepare.

All the questions that you will see on the exam are in
https://community.isc2.org/t5/Exams/CISSP-questions/m-p/18626

(NO, OF COURSE NOT!!!)

However, a number of people have noted that

is particularly useful ...

And when I was facilitating seminars, I would tell candidates that, while Harris'
book was the most readable, I refused to answer any question that started out
"Shon Harris says ..."

(Having reviewed a great deal of the security literature, it was hilarious, reviewing
the first edition of the All-in-1, to find sentences, paragraphs, and sometimes
whole pages where I could identify the orginal sources she lifted them from.

from three people is research.] Over time she got better at rewording, but she did
have a habit of "explaining" things that she didn't actually understand ...)
