I failed my CISSP test on 19th Sep 2020, and now i want appear for the exam again but the problem is from 1st May 2021 onwards there is an update on CISSP curriculum.
Can somebody please clarify the following for me:
1. If i schedule my exam now for Mid of May, will the CISSP questions still be from old material or from new updates?
It will be great if somebody can explain this to me..
I have the exact same questions...with the addition of will there be new study material available for the 1 May changes prior to 1 May testing as I plan on testing around the 23rd of may.
Answers to your questions and more are available on (ISC)²'s FAQ page.
Q: When will these changes go into effect?
A: The changes will begin on May 1, 2021.
Q: If I have been studying for the CISSP exam with material that focuses on the current domains, will I be sufficiently prepared to take the new exam without additional study?
A: (ISC)² exams are experience-based that include experience-based items that cannot be learned by studying alone. If you already have the experience in the domains covered in CISSP and believe that you have sufficiently studied those domains, you should feel confident that you are qualified to take the new exam and pass it. (ISC)² cannot guarantee you will pass the exam.
Q: What impact do these changes have on (ISC)² training materials?
A: An update to the Official (ISC)² CISSP Training Course (classroom-based and online-instructor led) will be available in May 2021
what about the study materials available if your not in the (ISC)2 course....will they be available before the 1 May 21 testing.
If I'm delayed by the 90 day wait. Can I Test before the 1 May changes at a reduced 90 day wait period?
The formal answer for both of those questions would come from the publisher/author and from ISC support, respectively, but in both cases, I would brace for a "no".
I earlier included the second "Q/A" because it may be relevant to why you now have a 90 day wait. Check out this article to learn if maybe you are taking the wrong exam. On another thread, you indicated "I have many years of experience as a security analyst and network technician", which may better align with the SSCP than the CISSP.
A link to the outline that Rslade referenced can be found at the very bottom of one of the FAQs.
Q: How is the CISSP exam changing?
A: ... Please refer to the CISSP Exam Outline for details.
I concur that it could be more prominently placed.
