New exam format for CISSP

Hi,

 

I have seen a few rumor on some website telling that there will be a new CISSP exam format from December?

 

It would be based on a new adaptative format.

 

Can someone confirm this?

Re: New exam format for CISSP

Hadn't seen that one before, thanks Steve. I can't find any other source for this, but a company that sells CAT oriented training. Indeed, can (ISC)2 confirm?

Re: New exam format for CISSP

Thanks for your inquiry, and sorry for the delay in responding. At the (ISC)² Security Congress member Town Hall last month, our CEO discussed introducing CAT for the CISSP exam. We don’t have a timeline to share just yet, but more information will be forthcoming.

Just to be sure: so, it's not certain yet that the CISSP exam will change over to CAT? Because the good folks over at Cybervista are very certain that we WILL Smiley Mad

Hi, how was the exam experience? Is there any change other than the pattern?
