CISSP Practice Questions (Exam Cram 2)

I have done the preliminary preparation and now am looking to focus in more on the exam itself, rather than the CBK.  I came across the CISSP Practice Questions (Exam Cram 2) http://search.barnesandnoble.com/bookse ... &pwb=1&z=y
This book seems perfect, but it dates back to October 2004.  Is this still relevant, or is it too old and a waste of money?  All responses are greatly appreciated.

i used cccure.org (passed in Dec 05)  and the advice i got was that if you could pass the pro questions you would  know pretty much what you needed to know for the exam.

Re: CISSP Practice Questions (Exam Cram 2)

Funny you should mention this, because I was just about to announce that I have been asked by http://www.searchsecuritychannel.com to participate in their Ask the Expert panel. Two of the questions I answered deal specifically with CISSP. So here's a few links that may help you:

'Ask The Experts' panel for Information Security Training and Certification

Check out our sister site, Certified Security Professional Online Magazine

List of CISSP Books

As for practice exams, ChrisG is on the money. http://www.cccure.org is a great resource. Also, the practice questions at the end of the Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CISSP Exam are made up of actual retired exam questions. So it gives you a good idea as to the type of questions you'll get.

Hope this gets you going in the right direction,

Re: CISSP Practice Questions (Exam Cram 2)

Thanks Chris, I have been working those pro questions, and creating flash cards of the terms I do not understand.  I will continue to focus and drill on those questions.

Don,

Thank you again, I will check out these links and add things (when applicable) to the study regiment.

Re: CISSP Practice Questions (Exam Cram 2)

None of the questions you see will be word for word on the exam, like what you see on MS exams. And most of the questions like the ones from Wiley, Shon Harris, and the Official book all have errors in them. Even some of the ones on cccure are wrong. I would suggest when using cccure to track which domains you do worst on. That will give you a good idea on what you need to restudy. Also, doing a high level refresher overview a day or two before the exam is a good idea. The exam quesions themselves aren't that hard, its more of an endurance thing because there are so many questions. It usually takes most people 3 1/2 - 4 hours to finish.

Re: CISSP Practice Questions (Exam Cram 2)

oleDb and Don are both right.

i did forget to say that ISC2 does an online quiz.  you dont get to see the answers but  the questions are similar to exam questions and it will tell you what domains you are weak in.  when i got the results at the end i agreed with the bar chart that showed where i was on the domain knowledge.

i felt it was worth the 50 or 75 dollars it was to take it.  i really didnt want to take a 500 practice test :-)

Re: CISSP Practice Questions (Exam Cram 2)

That is a great idea, thanks ChrisG. I am concerned about blowing the 500 bucks as well.  I know the material, but I'm not 100% sure I'm test ready.

This could be the litmus test I need to convince myself that I am making (not making) the right decision to test now.
