Tips for Passing the New ISC2 Electronic Based CISSP Exam

Having taken this exam on paper, THREE TIMES, there's just one word of advice I can offer - STUDY. Study like you've never studied before. The author recommended 30-90 days of study prior to the exam. I studied, overall, for 3 years before passing the CISSP exam. And I studied for 30 hours a week, for 3-4 months before the exam. Memorization will not help much here. This exam is about concepts and theory. It's a "what if (this) ?", and "how do you react to (that) ?".  This is not an IT technical exam, it's a management exam.

If you have ever taken a Microsoft or CompTIA exam, you are used to the straight-forward question and answer of multiple choice or multiple answer. There's always 2 answers that are completely wrong, 1 is close, and the other is correct.  Not so with the CISSP exam. It's not unusual to get a question, and 4 possible answers that stretch the imagination for being related to the question. Yup, no easy answers here, but one IS correct.

As for the change in venue, the computer based exam may actually be more difficult.  It's much easier to go back through the exam booklet and recall your train of thought, than to flip through 250 screens to find a question you already worked on.  Oh, and if you think you will go to one of the brain dump sites and just memorize the answers, think again. ISC2 have tens of thousands of questions in their database. I said I took the exam 3 times, and I don't think I got the same question twice.

So... Good Luck!! and STUDY STUDY STUDY!!!

Has Your Credit Card Number Been Stolen?

This picture should speak for itself. But I wonder how many people would put in their information? It's very deceptive, and while it may be a benign joke, it could be very serious too.
