Retaking CISSP and or CISSP associate

i failed in old format 5yrs back lack in PKI

i failed again now in new format, over proficiency dropped

 

1) retaking policy

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: If you don't pass the exam the first time, you can retest after 30 days. If you don't pass a second time, you can retest after an additional 90 days.

 

If i am to reschedule in another 3-4months time, there is no issue or difference in retaking compare to my ytd failed attempt right? exam free still the same.

 

2) CISSP or CISSP associate

i'm afraid of losing out if just taking up associate cert.

In my current and past experience, i do not formally justify or quantify i'm performing a security function but i did touch plenty of asset security, access management, vulnerability remediation (can be domain 6/7) in my administration. Im having an IT degree and tech cert in VM + MCSA.

 

Will i benefit in taking CISSP associate first?

OK, standard advice:

Read "Security Engineering" https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~rja14/book.html

Check out "CISSP questions"
https://community.isc2.org/t5/Exams/CISSP-questions/m-p/18626

(If you want more questions, post a reply in that topic, even if it only says "I
want more questions." That's the only way I can add more questions at the
moment.)

There is no difference in exam between the actual cert and the Associate
designation. You automatically *get* the Associate if you can't verify the
experience requirement (after you pass).

Jack,

There is no such thing as an "associate cert."

Folks without the years of experience just take the same exam as everyone for the certification, but only have Associate of (ISC)2 status until documenting experience and getting endorsed for certification. 

 

Good luck,

 

Craig

Re: Retaking CISSP and or CISSP associate

Noted for the advise and update.

I was realizing that SSCP and CCSP be my better path compare to CISSP as I had been doing tech roles in my past careers.
