SSCP Training Strategy

I would like some input on what would be the best strategy in pursuing training for the SSCP certification. Being on a limited personal budget, would online training and textbooks prepare me for the exam?

Re: SSCP Training Strategy

I’d recommend textbooks (Sybex). Do you have any experience in the field either directly or indirectly? If not, find a book that provides details and goes in depth. When I prepared for my CISSP, I read the 1200+ pages cover to cover and took notes. Pace yourself and treat it like a part time job (I studied 2-3 hours a day).

Thanks for the advice!

 

I do hold an Applied Science degree in Cybersecurity and manage network endpoint security solutions (Symantec & Malwarebytes) for my organization, along with Nexpose, White Cloud Security and SecureVue.

Re: SSCP Training Strategy

Any reason why you don’t want to study for the CISSP? You definitely have the background and experience. I’ll admit, the test is a beast, but there’s no need to second guess yourself. Go for it!!
