I am studying for the SSCP and don't see a lot on it. I have a book by CRC Press Official (ISC) Guide to the SSCP CBK. I want to take and also take the CISSP later but am in the thick of working in the systems and want to incorporate strong security practices. What are some recommendations? I also wonder what have other s used to train for and pass the SSCP. Has anyone found any good free resources to help get ready for the certification? Please share the wealth and your success.

The "SSCP (ISC)2 Systems Security Certified Practitioner Official Study Guide" by George Murphy also provides online practice chapter tests and full exams which I found very helpful.
Thank you great feed back. Has anyone found any great online training resources everything I see are books and their included material? I am looking for some online training I prefer free but if it is good I would pay just want to make sure i am ready. I am so debating the CISSP over the SSCP. I am also studying for the CEH and CASP.
+1 for using the "SSCP Systems Security Certified Practitioner All-in-One Exam Guide" . If you have some experience in IT and even a little in security already then this will be the only resource you need. Read the book and then use the practice exam questions that come with it.
Sorry to resurrect an older thread, however does anyone have experience with any apps for SSCP? ISC2 recommends the learnzapp app, however the reviews are less than ideal, and the others don't have any.
Federal employees and verified military veterans can enroll in the Federal Virtual Training Environment (FEDVTE). I used this to prepare for the SSCP and I am using it to study for CISSP.
I just provisionally passed the SSCP exam a couple of weeks ago (awaiting processing now), and the resource I used, that was free to me because my company has a subscription, was Skillsoft ( https://www.skillsoft.com/ ). They do have a mobile app so you can access the site on your mobile device, though it is not specifically a study app, just an alternate means of accessing their site content.
Skillsoft provides electronic copies of the following SSCP books:
They also had an online SSCP exam prep video course series covering the domains in 8 1-2 hour sessions, with end of section review questions, as well as a separate online practice test.
To study for the exam, I completed the video course series, read the CBK, skimmed the other two study guides for additional material, and took a total of 4 practice tests:
Hope this helps!
