You can appear for an CISSP exam three times in a calendar year. but you will need to pay $ each time you attempt
From (ISC)2's website:
You can sit for (ISC)² exams up to three times within a 12-month period.
For the CISSP-CAT, CISSP, SSCP, CAP, CSSLP, ISSAP, ISSEP and ISSMP:
For the CCSP and HCISPP:
Each time you sit, I believe you wil need to pay the appropriate fee.
As with all certification exams the more experience, work practice combined with the sheer number of prior exam sittings will easily prepare you to pass most any test. Something like practice makes perfect seems to work well here as well.
Go into the exam well practiced and prepared and you will have no problems passing the exam.

I just lost $700 Dollar even i prepared very well , and don't have guts to put another $700 for retake even i'm confident that i will pass, on the exam it really makes me to think, this all english type 120 question, can be cleared using CISSP exam dumps only. The CISSP knowledge is very important important not the certification which i what i felt after i failed.
Tips for passing exams
1. Follow exam dumps
2. Should be having good memory.
3. If you are performs technical job day-2-day keeping the system secure with the knowledge of CISSP domains thats sufficient for you.
4. If your english is good and read between line and want to become speaker on security area, the certification will be valued.
5. if you got the CISSP certificate and claiming now i know all the eight domains, is technically not possible.
Before you consider using exam dumps, I strongly recommend reading this article. There is much more than $700 at risk.
Thats the whole goal of CISSP and i truly Adhere to this
What my ask/request for CISSP Organization is people who failed in first attempt should be allowed for minimum one number of attempt on the same exam fees. This is huge cost for people coming from developing country
I understand this is how CISSP certification work but as ISC2 is an Non Profit organization should consider this parameter in future policy making.
I will be more happy if exams are tougher and tougher.
