    @william-fields Contrats William =) I am not sure if I should attempt the CV0-002 beta or not. I am currently studying for the CISSP exam. Maybe by the time I am done with CISSP the beta exam will have an official release. Thanks for sharing how you studied for the CV0-002 exam =)

    This link is very useful concerning this subject so I thought I would share. It looks like about 95% of the information will be roughly the same.

    Hi guys - I passed the Cloud + exam on Tuesday. I would like to thank the ITPro staff for their Cloud + course. The course is very helpful when studying for the Exam

    I realize the Cloud + Exam is a pretty basic certification but I wanted to get a cloud certification on my resume. The exam was a pretty standard CompTIA exam. You need to know the information and concepts inside and out. They will try and trick you with vague and interestingly worded questions. Memorization of practice question is not enough to pass this exam. I really liked Cloud + because it has given me a basic foundation to at least talk intelligently about cloud computing. I have been through interviews and have been asked basic questions about moving to the cloud or what would be most important about securing systems in the cloud. If I had this certification at that time I could have answered those question in a more detailed and accurate way.

    Below is what I used to study for the exam:

    1. ITPRO.TV Cloud + class
    2. CompTIA Cloud + Certification study guide (Nate Stammer and Scott Wildon) Practice questions in the book and on an included CD
    3. Practice test found on Udemy
    4. Cybrary IT Cloud + videos (These are not even close to as good as the ITPro.TV videos)

    I realize CV0-002 will be out soon so this information might not be that relevant but I figured I would share =)

    @mike-rodrick Hi Mike - Thank you for taking the time to reply to my question =) I slept on this question last night and I think you are correct. It appears that most of the information should not change enough to warrant waiting. I will push forward with current training materials and add any new information as new training becomes available.

    Hello - I am trying to decide if I should study for my CISSP or wait until after April 15, 2018. I do not want to waist time studying old material if it will be less relevant on the new test. Maybe I should invest the next 2 months studying for an easier cert and then pick back up CISSP once the new study material is released? I don't think I can study for 2 months before the April 15th dead line and be ready to take the test. I read the FAQ on the ISC2 website and they say

    ***"(ISC)² exams are experience-based that include experience-based questions that cannot be learned by studying alone. If you already have the experience in the domains covered in CISSP and believe that you have sufficiently studied those domains, you should feel confident that you are qualified to take the new exam and pass it. (ISC)² cannot guarantee you will pass the exam."

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this subject or words of wisdom? Do you think if I study the old material that it may still be relevant enough to assist in me passing the CISSP? (I have about 15 years IT exp and 8 years of Infosec experience)
