  • https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-prepare-isc2-cissp-issap-certification-leon-kolthof/ Im preparing for ISSAP as well, I found the book to be terrible. The content is very cumbersome to read, very little material per page. In fact I decided to r…
  • In my case, most concepts were covered but some required either prior knowledge or research to cover well. I would use the book as a guide of what you need to know. Most questions were indirect references to the concepts covered in the book. i.e. ba…
  • I'm sure I learned a few things here and there, but I can't think of any specifics. I did enjoy the labs and the wide variety of vulnerable software. i would say playing around with exploit deveoplemnt prompted a bunch more interesting research e…
  • Quick update: I took the exam yesterday and now awaiting results. Overall not too bad. I had to wait to get off of work to actually start on the exam (ran some scans in the meantime) but from 4pm til about 4am I rooted 4/5boxes. I went after the …

  • Well it's been a week. I went through the material which was very brief and not very useful and spent an hour or two each day on the labs. At this point i have compromised a dozen boxes and have access to the other networks. At this point I decid…
  • I would search your locate area job postings, My guess is ISC2 CCSP from the security side and AWS/AZR from the infra perspective. Personally I think people put too much trust into bootcamps, there are good high end bootcamp providers (SANS/Cylan…
  • Thank you for posting the exam guide, its helpful. I have about 2 years pentesting experience and probably have a good chance of just passing the exam. Just trying to figure out my options. 60$ for a practice exam is a good deal
  • I doubt you really need any programming, as long as you can follow a simple example you're fine. I would do python more then C. It's my understanding that you need to do very basic things, string operations, loops. Good C book: https://www.amazon…

  • Thanks for the feedback. The enum part of HTB sometimes get to me, I think i spent 2 days on the pfsense box just running various wordlists... bit unnecessary... I guess Ill just bite the bullet and buy the 30day lab.
  • thanks guys
  • imagine if vi has :set lines=100 but your window only has 50 lines. youd have to use the scroll bar on the side to move up and down to find your cursor.
  • yoba222: I didn't even think about SUSE but that's totally true, they basically dropped that mid way through the course Sounds good: probably 15 years off and on... 3years full time. The course objectives are fairly broad so I have not had exposu…
  • Yup, it was way easier then I thought it would be. Finished in 3h with a nice tea break.
  • Well I got her done... thanks everybody for the tips, it was easier then I thought and easier then the sybex practice tests. T
  • I honestly have not looked that much into the CAT thing, it seems some of my assumptions are wrong. In either case the push to get it done is a good thing. Thanks for your comments

  • Wannabe: I would book your exam ASAP if you have not done it yet, all my locations(25mile radius) were booked solid; I got the last spot. Adaptive testing is never the same, people have strengths and weaknesses based on their predisposition and t…
  • weird, it seems my post is getting marked as spam.

  • Just some further clarification I understand CISSP is not a technical exam, I am just trying to get some clarity on how much technical "dust" is required. I have been doing the sybex practice tests (90% avg) tried a few other online with similar…
