I have the PCIP. As far as I know, there is nothing available other than the PCI's official training. I am not aware of any study material other than what is freely available on the PCI's website under the section "Educational Resources".
Thanks and did you take the course or just read the info from their site then take the test? Is this a hard test and did you study much for it?
Yes, I took the course. I liked the course at this date.
I don't study much for it, but I had more than 3 years of experience in this. I did assesment (with QSA), pentests, and had experience at processing center.
Right now I am at the time of Requalification. I bought cource (because it is 250vs150$ - not so much), but there are no significant updates and I have mixed feelings...
So if you have relevant experience and speak well in English 🙂 it would be not so hard, otherwise buy course.
Sad thing is they didn't have this when I did PCI-DSS and PFI. and they won't grandfather you in either. But glad they finally figured out that you should be able to take something with you when you leave the comapny you did PCI work for.
I passed the exam today. The only independent study material I found was a book of sample tests written by Linda Jones. I think it helped.
