I'm glad to get this one out of the way, tough exam and I didn't think I made it. When the test person gave me my report and said congratulations I was so happy that all my hard work paid off. One thing that worked for me this time was I went in on all things CASP for a solid month. My previous attempt I studied on and off then on and off again for 7 months which wasn't helpful because by exam time I didn't remember all the concepts as well as I did this go around. This exam in my opinion is tougher that the CISSP, I know because I missed it by 60 points last year. The CISSP exam will be next and I'll use the same study strategy again to successfully pass that one too.

Lessons learned from failing the 1st time.
  • Skipped all 10 of the simulations at the start of the exam (1st time I spent well over an hour on the sims and then had to rush through the questions
  • Completed all multiple choice questions 1st
  • Then simulations last
  • Then one more quick read through of everything, glad I did because I saw one mistake

    Also passed CASP somehow. Did not feel that the test I took was the test that I studied for. Still, I studied more for this test than any other in the past. Studying for CISSP now. Congrats man, CASP is beastly.
