Get Organized and READ!
A wealth of security information is available for the CISSP candidate. However, studying everything is impractical. Instead, get organized, determine your strengths and weaknesses, and then READ!
Begin by downloading the free, official CISSP Candidate Information Bulletin from the (ISC)2 website (
). This bulletin provides a good outline of the subjects on which you’ll be tested.
Next, read this book, take the practice exam, and review the materials on the Dummies website (
). CISSP For Dummies, 4th Edition, is written to provide the CISSP candidate with an excellent overview of all the broad topics covered on the CISSP exam.
Next, focus on the areas that you identify as your weakest. Read or review additional references — the (ISC)² website lists numerous resources at
Finally, in the last week before your exam, go through all your selected study materials at least once. Review or read CISSP For Dummies, 4th Edition, one more time, as well as your personal study notes, and complete as many practice questions as you can.
