I know that people studying for the CISSP exam are by nature very busy people and I recognize that navigating websites trying to find all the advice you need is often a frustrating experience (even where the navigation is good). To give you a leg up I’ve carefully compiled a new 49 page CISSP study guide pdf which you can download for FREE!
CISSP study guide pdf – what’s in it
This study guide covers practical advice for people who are looking to study for and pass the CISSP exam with a view to becoming CISSP certified. This CISSP Study Guide offers guidance on what the CISSP is and reasons why you may decide to pursue it, strategies and tactics on effective study and advice on last minute preparation before taking the exam. Further to that, it also includes guidance on what happens after you pass the CISSP exam with a view to getting your CISSP certification application completed (and what to do if you don’t pass first time).
This guide isn’t just another technical guide – there are other people who have produced comprehensive guides (such as the Official Study Guide from Sybex and Shon Harris’ guide).
