Re: Not too happy with CSSLP Exam

I stand corrected on the exam being covered by ISC2.  I re-read the e-mail and my wishful thinking saw one thing, but in fact it is another.  ISC2 will allow anyone who has taken their course and failed the test to re-attend I believe the class free of charge.  It's not the actual test.  We'd still be out the money for taking a 2nd exam.

All of my study material had the models.

Re: Not too happy with CSSLP Exam

Hi
Thanks for your response. So did you pass the exams? Can you provide the names of the study materials you used & the models being referred to please? Are you already in the security, developer, DBA, or hardcore IT field?

Re: Not too happy with CSSLP Exam

I did pass the test on the first pass. It was brutal. I studied the infamous CSSLP CBK ans the All-in-One. The CBK had the models. I also read the CISSP book by Shon Harris.

 

I have been a developer for about 30 years. Most of it as a developer or a manager of developer. I have a fair amount of security experience from a management prospective,

 

I found the test to be about 25% book knowledge and 75% experience and common sense.

 

The security experience was the key for my passing. There were definitely were not covered in the books.

Re: Not too happy with CSSLP Exam

That should have read:

 

There definitely were questions that were not covered by the book.

 

The CBK was the 2nd edition.

 

I totally went the self-trained route.
