I find it hard studying from written media, I certainly did not posses the desire to read any of the books I purchased cover to cover. However, using the 'study quiz' functionality of the site I was able to find my weak points and really focus on studying those. I found repeated quizing on all areas, and then repeat quizing on the questions I got wrong was the fastest way for me to learn.. I have been in the IT industry for some 23 years, and in the Cyber Sec for the last 5 and a bit.. I really dislike doing exams, and the countless posts, blogs and video's outlining just how hard the CISSP was did nothing to help my fear. However, I tried to put that to the back of my mind and continued studying through CCure quizing, YouTube Videos, CISSP for Dummies book, the official study book and practice exams book and the Sunflower PDF and finally my own notes taken from a wide variety of places. I took my exam yesterday and passed on my first attempt.. Good luck everyone..
I passed my CISSP last Friday 02/12/2021. I just wanted to say that the cccure quiz questions have helped me a lot in understanding concepts and analyzing questions before picking up the correct answer. The exam is really a tricky one, you need to understand the English language also study the material. Thank you for this wonderful tool. I look forward to studying for CCSP-any recommendation? Thanks.
Hello. I successfully passed the CISSP on 29th October. Was a monster of an exam. Exactly what every one says about it is true and especially how to approach it. This test bank will cement the required approach into your mind. I completed many test questions and in the final 2 weeks I replayed a Youtube webcast from a study group. This helped me greatly. Also I found the official ISC CISSP test App was very helpful. I highly recommend you find and join a suitable study group - I wish I had done so earlier in my journey.. I passed at around 102/103 questions. My one piece of advice would be to ensure you become extremely proficient at determining the best answer. In many cases you will be faced with a question that does not have an obvious correct answer. Think very hard why answers are incorrect and that will likely leave you with the remaining correct answer. Good luck to all. It is a wonderful feeling when you pass this exam.
Normally, I don't usually post feedback after my exams. But I just have to make a post to give some advice. I Took the CCSP exams yesterday after using the materials on this site and materials from Willy and Todd. I read more than 6hours every day for three months and a half but failed the exams yesterday 24/07/2020 and I have also failed CISSP in the past as well. Let me point it out that out of the 125 questions in the CCSP exams no single "exact or even look alike" questions came out from this site or even study questions from other materials I used for preparation. Now I discovered the problem is within ISC2. Let me point it out that I have written other exams such as Cisco exams, Lean Six Sigma BlackBelt, e-council CEH, CompTIA exams, and many more. The problem I discovered is that ISC2 has a way of wording their questions that makes it very difficult for people to pass such that all materials used for study and preparations become irrelevant. Most times, one is able to eliminate two questions out of the four options presented but then the remaining two are such that you can't do away with either. Again the phrasing and wording of the options apart from the question itself are crazy. Why don't ISC2 stick with their study materials? it doesn’t make any sense studying with so many materials and on the day of the exam, it becomes a different ball game struggling to interpret questions. I am done with ISC2 and moving to other non-vendor specific cloud exams!
NOTE FROM CLEMENT: Timothy, thanks for your precious feedback. This is one of the most common complaints we hear all the time. Why make the questions so convoluted and hard to understand. This is not an English test, it is a technical test. Also, most people study from one of a couple of study books, but in reality, the exam is based on almost one hundred references plus the famous 5 years of experience. In short, READING is one of the most important skill for this exam.
Didn't pass CCSP. I believe it's more to do with wording of the actual actual exams ISC2 uses. CCCURE questions are good and will get you to about 80%.
Quality test banks so far, but that would be better if there is an option that let students take the CISSP exam questionnaires by domain.
Note from Clement: "You do have the option of doing one domain at the time which is what we recommend. Click on QUIZ, then select NEW QUIZ, which will take you to the main quiz generation page. On that page, you can select the certification you wish to work on, the specific domain or domains you wish to be tested on as well. You can pick one domain, two domains, multiple domains, or all of them if you wish.
I'm giving this a 4 star review due to the awesome nature of the test structure. It does represent what you will see on the exam. However, even after a thousand Security + questions, 90% of the exam covered material that was not included in these practice tests. Please, utilize other study material in conjunction with this site. Do your best to answer these test questions organically and without help, as a 100 question practice exam will be much like the real thing. Learn configurations for WAPs, how to point out a breach on a server, identifying when a breach occurred, virus forms, formats of file types (png, etc), hashing, situations regarding "The BEST" option and visa versa, control types (corrective, preventative, and so on. these were very prominent on my exam). This site is a fantastic tool to help you study, but as stated before, please use other study material in conjunction with this site. Professor Messer's Security + videos and study material was a huge help to me as well as this site. Good luck!
I would say cccure helped in shaping my thinking process, and gave me some level of calmness approaching the exams. At a point I was jittery in the exams, I remembered my average score in cccure, and I just calmed down knowing my cccure should be my worst score no matter what. God helped me all through and I passed the CISSP at my first attempt, all glory to God! Advice: Do at least 2000 questions, but be sure to also read the Study Guide. Do not expect ANY questions you met on cccure to come out of the exams. The pattern is totally different, BUT cccure will help shape your thinking. The exam is tough, not as easy as some say! I spent the whole 3 hours and answered 150 questions. My approach: I approached each question with calmness, concentrated on what I am reading rather than my interpretation of it. I am a technical person and if you are, the exam becomes tougher! Stay within the questions, note well words like MOST, MINIMUM, BEST, LIKELY, FIRST, and NOT as these words are the only pointer you get to decipher what the question is saying and what options could be (if you are technical!). My resources: cccure and the ISC Study guide. More importantly, prepare well, trust God and trust yourself. Total preparation - 7 days effectively. Thanks to those who found cccure, glory to God!
I passed my CISSP exam on the first try! My manager and colleague had formal training through ISC2. I was unable to attend. As a result, they took their exams first. My manager passed while my other colleague did not.
I thought I wasn't going to have a chance since they had a 50% pass rate and they actually took the training. My study materials were the O'Reilly video course and the ISC2 CISSP study book. I used CCCure exclusively for study exams along with the questions provided at the end of each chapter. The questions were not exactly the same as the ones here, but that's the goal. The goal is to get you thinking the way they want you to think in the exam and it seemed to work. Towards the end of my study, I changed the settings to only include questions I hadn't seen before or had missed in the past 10 exams and my average dropped a bit. I felt pretty bad at that point, but apparently, it was for the best because I noticed a few topics I needed to study upon. This morning I still felt ill-prepared, but I guess that's the nature of these exams. Thankfully at the end of the test, I discovered I passed. Cheers!!!
The cccure test engine really helped me prepare well for the exam. I r.ealised that it was the missing ingredient when I was facing difficulty in my prep initially. The continuous study along with the cccure quiz finally helped me gain the confidence required to attempt the exam. I passed on the first attempt after 3 months of intensive preparation - big part of which was the quiz for each domain. The detailed explanaton with each questions were particulary helpful to clarify doubts and retain inforrmation longer. I would certainly recommend the cccure quiz as an important component of overall CISSP prep. Thanks so much Clement and Team, your eforts in keeping the quiz updated and at high standards are much appreciated!
1 month ago, I decided to register for the CISSP exam on 22nd June. I was scoring around 65-68% on an average on all the topics in CCCure and the exam was near. I was nervous. My subscription was going to expire on 16th but I always believe things can happen if you ask for them.
I requested CCCURE to extend my subscription by 1 week and Clement was not only generous enough to extend my subscription but he also gave me a gem of advice which really helped me prepare the strategy for a next few days. Practicing questions via CCCURE helped me in 2 big ways: 1. It helped me to get into the CISSP mindset. 2. I was able to identify my weaknesses and work on them. These 2 things made a huge difference in helping me clear the exam in first attempt!
Clement and Team, you're doing a great job by empowering individuals to achieve their goals! Keep it up!!
PASSED TODAY! After studying night in and night out for 4 weeks. I had my test today 6/14 and passed. I couldnt be more excited nor could I be more thankful for the amazing guidance and prep from CCCure. I have read many other testimonials from this site and I can confirm that the test is challenging but not insurmountable. As you can see I took at 35 tests and almost 3500 questions and I needed them all to get the confidence I had going into that testing center today. I can say that Im not a novice to InfoSec but I dont have YEARS of experience either and I passed and substantially increased my knowledge base with this service! While you wont find exact questions, I can tell you that you will find plenty of similarities in question style, answer style and also general test makeup when compared to the testing engine here. Granted I took a multi faceted approach to studying and CCCure was only a part of it, this was without a doubt the most critical aspect of my studying and it paid off. Also I didnt pay for any course in person or online, just good ole fashioned late nights, ink and paper cuts!
I took CISSP class, bought the practice exam through another provider and took the exam with a failing result in December. A colleague of mine told me of CCCURE and I signed on to use the practice test. I did all my practice questions in a "Pro" mode. I appreciate the way Clement and the CCCURE team analyzed each of the questions in such a convincing way to bring the best answer out. The use of ISC2 CBK as part of the reference material for almost all of the questions reinforced the concept as required by the ISC2. I like the personal notes from Clement to support each of the comments made to the answers. I started my review with each domain. After completing one domain, I will move on to the next one. I reviewed all answers (whether correct or incorrect) in order to master the act very well. I redo each of the questions if I have chosen a wrong answer. After completing the entire domains. I started doing 150 questions across all domains in preparation for the real thing. While you may not see questions exactly like the ISC2 questions in CCURE practice tests, what you will see is the concept behind each questions, you will be able to tell which domain the questions is coming from, you will be able to analyze the question and bring out what they are looking for. After using CCCURE for 18 days, I passed my CISSP exam today 4/27/2019. Thank you to Clement and the entire team.
These were the most realistic questions I came across in preparing for the exam, helped me to find the areas I needed to focus on and provided quick concise details on the answers for further study.
On 2/23/2018 I was able to take the 2018 CISSP Exam and pass. CCure was instrumental in passing this exam along with the CISSP CBK. These two resources are what I would consider to be absolutely essential to my success on these tests. Previously I also used CCCure and the CBK to successfully pass the CCSP in 2017. There are some important considerations to take when being challenged by this exam. First off, no assortment of resources regardless of how good they are will fully prepare you from the test. There are many out there who would say that the questions of the CISSP are deceptive but I didn't find this to be the case at all. I found the CISSP to be pretty straightforward and the test was honestly asking a single question through the whole experience: "Did you put enough time in the security trenches to truly consider yourself a professional" The test will always 100% ask you questions that will be unprepared for or that will not be in your study materials, but what I really found was that the test was probing on how I was thinking and how aligned my mindset was with that of a high level manager in the security field. The best advice I can offer is that make sure you take the top down approach, mentally put yourself in the chair of a CISO in a fictional company in your head and work each question from the top (greatest threat) down to the operations level. Honestly I did not find the test as difficult or the questions as deceptive as others have reported. It was not by any means an easy test. I would recommend at least 30 days of preparation with the CBK and at least 2000 CCCure questions answered in testing mode with a combined average of 80% or higher before you consider attempting the exam. CCCure is a wonderful resource and absolutely essential. I found the CCCure questions to actually be more deceptive than the actual test. While you will not find CCCure questions within the test, the product fulfills an absolutely critical role. It trains your mind to scrutinize every question and read through everything in detail. The kind of deceptive questions in CCCure that make you think the answer is one thing but then punish you later when you see that your thinking was misaligned is exactly the kind of training you need to put you in the right mindset for these tests. I would recommend both CCCure and the CBK as the absolute prime resources to any ISC2 exam. Thank you to the CCCure team, admins, and support staff that put together this amazing resource. 10/5, I would recommend CCCure to any professional looking to challenge themselves against the CISSP, CCSP, or any exam of ISC2 caliber.
Ran out of time studying for the exam. I went ahead and took it and failed. I was highly disappointed in myself. With CCCure, the question examples represent many double negative questions; however, I didn't see that on this exam. I was also upset by the wording of the questions on the CISSP exam. On some questions, I had no idea what ISC was wanting. Will retake! Any feedback will be welcomed.
NOTE FROM CLEMENT: I am sorry to hear about this. I have seen that your overall average was a bit low, you should reach at least 80% consistently before you feel ready for the real exam. I would look at your exam results and work hard on any domain marked as "below proficiency". Those are your weakest domain. Keep working on the domains until you score CONSISTENTLY above 80% and I am sure you can pass the next time. I recommend you do your quizzes in TEST MODE and you make use of the timer to get used to do quizzes under the clock like the real exam. Best regards Clement
Took the Pro tests for 5 days and on the 6th day took the exam and passed! Thanks Clement!
I sat for the CISSP exam yesterday and passed on the first try! I had taken a SANS boot camp in late November and have been studying ever since. I started taking these quizzes about three weeks ago and found them to be a great help. The detailed explanations of my incorrect answers really helped to clarify my areas of weakness. NOTE: when taking these quizzes it is important to truly understand the concepts, not just the answers. The questions on the actual exam can be vague, sometimes with several correct answers where you have to select the "most correct" answer.
I took the CISSP exam this morning, and without going into too much detail about the content, I will say that no particular practice exam quite prepared me for the exact ISC2 writing style or difficulty of questions. You ABSOLUTELY MUST study until you have every single precise detail of the CBK down pat, and then study a couple of weeks more just for good measure. Practice exams like the ones here cannot give you an exact simulation of the CISSP, but anything that helps identify gaps in your knowledge BEFORE you take the exam will be worth its weight in gold. A good vocabulary, reading comprehension, attention to detail, and logical understanding of complex wording is a must. There is no "winging it" or "phoning it in" for this test. You will NOT be comfortable nor very confident in any answer you give on the exam, no matter how much you studied. All you will know at the end is "PASS/FAIL". In my case, I passed in 2 hours after 100 questions. However, it was a rigorous, mentally and emotionally exhausting exam, and I am glad its over. Now I can have my life back.
NOTE FROM CLEMENT: The unfortunate thing is that you may get between a minimum of 100 to a maximum of 150 questions on your exam. Those are picked from a very large pool of thousands os questions. So you must know all of the key topics because you don't know which one will show up. The way adaptive tests are built, there is a good chance it will be what you DON'T know.
I’m extremely happy. I have provisionally passed the CISSP exam yesterday. I knew from friends who used that CCCure that it is a great investment and now I can vouch for it. The detailed explanation at the end of each question was very useful and it helped me understand the material in great depth. I also used the Sybex 8th edition, which was clear material. I did dedicate most of my time in the last two weeks and the result is tasty. Thank you all at CCure. Great material! Faris Mubarek ISO 27001/9001/GDPR consultant
I did not feel that my exam questions were in any way reflective of the exam I prepared; for with the CCCure test engine. I do not intentionally cast blame in any direction other than ISC2. My exam was full of inaccurate poorly worded questions which left me speechless at the final screen. I had no idea that I had actually passed until I was handed the final paperwork and told to have a nice day. If I can give any advice it would be to take off your technical hat and mindset and leave them at the door. Think like a manager....and hope for the best. Thank you for your site and your time.
Note from Clement: The CISSP exam does contain some very strangely worded questions, our questions are NOT exactly the same but they cover the key topics you need to know.
Great tool for exposing you to a wide berth of knowledge. I used this in conjunction with the Sybex book, reading a chapter/domain of that, then answer CCCure questions on it. Once I had gone cover-to-cover, I took many, many 100q exams covering everything. I still recommend this, though.
Hi Clement, I wanted to thank you for your valuable service. I listened to your audio/mp3's for the last several months (I have your voice stuck in my head now) and read the books on your recommendation list. I also used the terrific quiz engine to prepare. Your material is fantastic. I was able to pass the exam yesterday on the first attempt. However, the test was nothing like any of the material in the books or test questions. I am honestly not sure how I passed as the test was very confusing and abstract in nature. After the first 10 questions or so, I was not sure I had signed up for the right test. I kept thinking to myself that this test has nothing to do with security at all! It was very strange. I had only 100 questions and 3 hours, I finished in about 50min. Only about 10-15 of the questions where like your quiz engine and about 2-3 of them were very similar. I was thinking, "hey! I have seen this question!" It was not the same, but only similar. The rest of the questions were from I don't know where. I should be happy that I passed, but I am not because I don't think the test was a security test, at least not what I think of. Anyway, thank you for your help!!!
I passed today! The exam was easier than I expected, though the questions demanded a lot more thinking towards the end with little time to spare. So grateful I found this platform. It really helped me eliminate the wrong options which looked right. CISSP requires more than face value thinking and that is exactly how your questions are fashioned. Definitely worth every penny!
Passed the exam on 10/13/2018. Questions were very confusing (unnecessarily IMHO) and answer I chose for about 95% of the questions felt wrong to me. I got 150 questions. Questions in CCCure are not exactly the same in CISSP exam but I saw the practice questions here as a way to solidify my knowledge rather than a brain dump. All credit should go to CCCure, Larry Greenblat and Kelly from Cybrary. I also wasted $2500 in Global Knowledge class (not worth it). I was more confused after the class. They simply read the book to you for a week. I would rather buy videos from Larry, watch Kelly's free course in Cybrary website and then practice CCCure practice questions. That worked for me at least. Thanks to Larry, Kelly and CCCure (Clement).
I managed to pass the exam and found it extremely difficult, much more than the tests done here.
Lots of questions asking about the BEST answer, many others coming out of nowhere or things had never heard of.
Some of them also are work-experience based. Think like a manager and answers that best fulfill against the CIA triad.
I had many questions about Cloud, embedded devices, Network, and SDLC.
NOTE FROM CLEMENT: If you found our question easier than the real exam, it means you were well prepared and I am not surprised that you passed. People who score above 80% on our test do really good with the exam.
Hi, I just passed my exam last monday. The test engine is good in explanation when you have a wrong answer . It helped me a lot how to read and justify for the right answer and passing the exam in new format. Advice is to add some new questions regarding current security issues, e.g. GDPR. I will continue to use this site maybe for doing CCSP. Regards, Cor
NOTE FROM CLEMENT: GPDR is not on the CBK yet. The 2018 CBK is based on information from 1.5 years ago.
The study and test modes worked well to prepare me for the exam.
Good test engine to get familiar with the type of questions.
However, some questions with a source of the 4th edition of the Official CISSP Preparation Guide, although they are still valid technology wise, seems to be a bit outdated to me.
Hence I wouldn't waist to much time on them anymore.
NOTE FROM CLEMENT:
Oliver, the exam is based on concepts, not on technology. In fact, it is product and technology agnostic. Concepts don't change over time and remain the same. Technology changes all the time. We cannot use a newer reference along with the questions until the certification and the book publisher comes out with their new version. The 4th Edition book from ISC2 is 100% applicable to the new April 2018 CBK. Best regards Clement
Thank you for a good test engine. It helped me to understand the way the questions are made during the exam, the kind of thinking and the need one as exam taker need to have reading the questions carefully. I passed my exam after failing a couple of times previously. When I clicked the submit button I was more than confident I had passed. You have an amazing site, looking forward to use it in other future certifications. Oscar - Costa Rica.
I just wanted to drop the site a quick “Thank You”. I used a number of sources in addition to this website to study for the CISSP exam. After months of self study and a one week boot camp I passed my test yesterday on the first attempt. Taking the quizzes (in study mode) as if they were a test was a huge learning aid. By reviewing all questions under the details tab provided excellent study material in addition to why for the correct answers and reasons for the incorrect. The questions prepared me well for the style of question found on the certification exam. Thank you for your site, it was money well spent!
CCCure's quiz engine was a great help to ensuring I was prepared for the CISSP exam. What helped was going through each incorrect answer. Some have great explanations and that’s enough. Some don’t go into much detail, but then I would research it myself to make sure I understood the reasoning behind the answer. This helped enormously. The other piece I liked was the exposure to terminology. There’s at least 4-5 questions I had on the CISSP that I was able to easily answer just because I had just seen the concept/term used in a practice question in CCCure. The other piece was helping reduce my anxiety around the test - after all it’s been years since I’ve taken exams and going through a ton of practice ones really helps get you comfortable. I think practice tests help in a couple of ways. First, they’re a good level set for figuring out how strong you are and what you need to focus on. Second, review during the week before the exam, and especially using the option to not reuse any questions to make sure you maximize exposure to different concepts and terminology to get comfortable. Great stuff. Recommended!
This is a great Platform to practice CISSP and all the certification exam preparation. Quiz engine is user friendly, easy to use with all type of support. accept user changes and make as per user requirement.
Just wanted to take a moment to thank you. I used this website to study in addition to a 2-weeks CISSP bootcamp in Hawaii and passed my test on the first attempt. Reviewing the questions in a test type atmopshere and being able to review the correct answers and why they other options were incorrect really helped. The certification exam felt almost easier than the practice tests on this webiste.
As a CISSP instructor, I recommend CCCure.training to all my students as it is the largest and just the very best site out there to help students to pass this tough certification exam. Most of the CISSP textbooks out there are also referring to this spectacular site as well. I make it mandatory for all students to go through all the questions in all eight domains before sitting for the exam. The questions are to the point, well structured, and close to real life exam. In addition to the questions, I can say that Clement's 50 hours videos are undoubtedly the best videos we can find anywhere on CISSP. The goal is not only to help students to pass but also to make sure they have the knowledge to be effective at their jobs. Students will also find the drag and drop, summary notes, and scenario-based questions to be very effective.
I passed my CISSP last week and your site was the main resource I used for my CISSP. I subscribed for your testing engine for a month as well and it was really a nice resource to have. I wish, I would have taken it for a 3 months period. I studied from different resources and your website was the most comprehensive of all.
I would like to thank you for everything you done. I’ve successfully passed the exam! The resources you’ve provided is extremely helpful. If there is anything you need from me, please feel free to ask!
I made good use of your quiz engine subscription and even passed the CISSP exam after using cccure for 28 days. Thank you so much!
I have now introduced your engine to one of my friends, he bought your one month license and also passed the exam 2 days back.. !
I would like to thank you for everything you have done, I’ve successfully passed the exam! The resources you’ve provided is extremely helpful. If there is anything you need from me, please feel free to ask!
I just wanted to pass on my thanks. I successfully passed my CISSP exam today. I think it was the toughest most grueling exam I have completed in my career to date.
