I had my exam earlier and got a provisionally passed result. Some of the items had a tricky way of questioning, but there should be no problems as long as the context is understood. The provided ISC2 material was certainly more than enough, but taking Mike Chapple’s LinkedIn learning prep course also helped to fill in the gaps. For clarity, I did have a year of experience in cybersecurity, but my focus was on the contracting & vendor risk reviews. Reviewing the contents was no walk in the park, still, since I’m no IT practitioner. Mynordstrom
When you pass your CC exam, you will receive an email from (ISC)² that congratulates you and provides next steps. There are two steps required after passing the exam, which are outlined in the email.
First, you will need to submit your certification application online. This can be done at https://apps.isc2.org/ (be sure you are logged in to your (ISC)² account). You do not need to provide experience as the CC does not require it, but just affirm you will follow the Code of Ethics.
The second step, after your application has been approved, is to pay your first Annual Maintenance Fee (AMF) of $50. Upon payment, you will get another email welcoming you to (ISC)².
If any of these things are not happening for you and you believe they should, please contact MemberSupport@isc2.org and provide your email address for your account (as well as your ID # from your pass letter). They can review your account to see if there is an issue where your results are not received on our side, for example, if you have created your account with Pearson VUE using a different email address than you used with us.
Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm using both methods to study for my exam as well. I'm hoping to schedule my exam date soon.
Thank you for sharing an amazing experience. I used both techniques to study for my exam. I will do my level best for my coming exams. DGME Employee
