I passed the CASP+ less than a week ago, and I'm taking the CISSP next. Should take the accelerated course or do I need to take the full 80 hour course. Also, how would you compare the level of difficulty (not the subject matter) of the two exams?
I passed the CASP+ how hard is the CISSP?
I hope all is well. Great question... It really depends on your level of comfort with the 8 domains that make up the CISSP CBK.
What most people find is that they are pretty comfortable with several of the domains, but unsure about a few.
I think that it makes sense to use the accelerated show for the domains where you feel you have a good comfort level, and use the full show for those domains where you feel that you might not be as comfortable.
I use the same notes and materials for both, so nothing is different at all, other than the amount of time we spend discussing things, and the amount of "assumptive knowledge" we credit yo for having before we begin a discussion.
If you find that one, or both, formats work best for you, that is one of the great things about your membership, you can do what is best for you, because you have access to all of our shows all the time... :)
If, as you are moving through the show(s)/episodes, you have any questions, please feel free to be in touch with me as needed. My direct e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Good Luck !!!
