Re: Failed CISSP - big time disappointment

Please get the *8th* Edition as the study and exam content changed in 2018 and the book was updated accordingly.  BTW, for those who are not aware, the Sybex book is the Official Study Guide.

Re: Failed CISSP - big time disappointment

The 8th edition is one of the few recommended study guides by ISC2.

ISC2 finally came out with its 5th edition as well.

It took almost a year after the CBK was released but it finally came out.
Unfortunately, they removed all of the questions from the book and you now
have to buy a separate book with questions.

So the 8th edition is a better deal.

Re: Failed CISSP - big time disappointment

Yes, purchase the latest ones, because his students update him on how the exam went and he focuses his content accordingly. ISC2 seems to have dropped a lot of the math and some of the more granularly technical questions and focuses more on the policy management. So I wouldn't be surprised if his newest videos focus most on "What's the FIRST thing you should do when..." types of scenarios.

Re: Failed CISSP - big time disappointment

Since you've already studied the material, you should do Boson, and at the same time study those subjects that you don't understand subject by subject using the latest Sybex and AiO. And watch the latest Greenblatt videos ($100 from his website). You should ask for the latest, since he does classes every month or so.

Re: Failed CISSP - big time disappointment

Almost forgot to mention. When you study the the subjects, be sure to include NIST documents and wiki. IMO, NIST has the most precise info. I wouldn't be surprised if ISC2 formulated some of their questions based on NIST content.

So assuming that your exam level is at 500-699 (failing), by doing the above, you should get a passing score on your next attempt. Just focus on that extra 10-20% that’s needed to pass.

Or stop arguing about which study guide is best and just make sure you know the
field.

Read "Security Engineering."

Re: Failed CISSP - big time disappointment

OJT helped me more than any other resource when I took the exam, yet strangely it rarely makes the study lists.  For me, it was the single biggest factor for making the exam "easy".

 

My personal recommendation (in order):

 

  1. OJT to build foundational knowledge.
  2. Security Engineering to deepen your knowledge.
  3. OSG or 11th hour to align your way of thinking with the exam.
