Thank you for these insights. I have several questions:
Where there any questions on DoD RMF? Cybersecurity Framework? FISMA? Past CAP Candidate Information Bulletin (CIB) OMB, CNSS and DHS References? Or were the questions only related to the NIST Special Publication and FIPSs identified on the ISC2 site in September of 2018?
Where acronyms used or were all spelled out?
Where their any questions that used only the form of "SP800-37" and OMB M-02-01?
Thank you very much. I look forward to your answers. Jim
Currently, people who have taken the test recently have only had Rev 1 questions. It takes 6-8 months to validate new questions by a third party group before they count, so with Rev 2 having been released in Dec 2018, I would guess that any questions on Rev 2 will not count for the final score until July 2019.
Thank you immensely for sharing your thoughts on the exams.
1.Can you please provide the complete list of the NIST 800 series docs needed for the exams? I took a brief look at some of the NIST 800 series you made mention of in your post and I found out that some of the publications are very dense. Should I read and know every bit of it?
2. I am planning on making flash cards, what should I pay particular attention to for the flash cards?
Thanks once again.
