I passed the SSCP in January on the first try and am transitioning from a network admin role to more of an information systems security role within my organization.

Welcome aboard, I'm new to the community as well (passed my test years ago but never bothered with participating here).  Hopefully we can all collaborate and better ourselves.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

15 years is a long time. How well has the certification worked out for you? I just passed the exam back in October 2017.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

I would say its was worth the time and effort.  I embarrassed all of the 10 domains which did help be learn more about security faster than I thought I would but also utilized my CISSP as a security practitioner with an Audit mentality. That gave me a niche that has worked well for all these years.  I realized you can follow specific tracks Technical or non-technical but be successful in each based on your mindset and degree of success.

hi new to the community

Hello, am new to the community as my studying for the CISSP is still in the early stages. Been doing practice tests scoring between 68% and 79%. The test I understand is changing in April and of course is the new CAT format, which I cant find any test practice engines in CAT format. Using the Offical IC2 CBK 4th Ed, Practice Apps, Sybex, Boson, CCcure , Shon Harris, Cybrary Videos, and the 11th hour. I get these for free being in the military through Book 24x 7 I plan to test when I score in the mid 80 to 90% on all practice exams. Any advise anyone has is appreciated! BTW I am Security + Certified ...

Re: hi new to the community

CAT is merely a testing technique and frankly would be very difficult to duplicate without 1000s of questions in the data bank in which to choose.

 

As far as the changes to the test itself I would say most of us are under the impression that this is more or less tweaking and does not reflect a wholesale change to the material itself so please don't worry about those things unless people come out of the exam screaming everything has changed - it won't.

 

You should feel confident in passing when your test scores on material you haven't seen numerous times from eyeing the same questions over and over hovers at 80 percent or more. Being human means we tend to go back to the same questions with the idea that answering those same questions over and over means we are learning the material. Or we are learning the same answers to the same questions.

 

Be sure to change up your quizzes or take a good amount of time between reviewing the same material less fall into a false sense of security. No pun intended. Smiley Wink

 

Ask lots of questions and of course, GOOD LUCK with the exam.
