Studying for a test, taking a test and passing a test is not an easy task and the ISC2 CISSP exam is no exception. What creates frustration is studying, putting in a lot of time and failing because you did not study the right information. Many people who have worked in security for many years either study on their own, read a book, take classes that have them memorize questions, put in countless hours and fail because they do not understand the premise of the exam. The ISC2 CISSP exam is an analytical exam. In order to pass one must understand how to analyze the questions correctly, navigate through the landmine of tricky questions and arrive at the correct answer. In this engaging webcast industry expert Dr. Cole will walk through what is required and the proper mindset that is needed in order to pass the exam. After this webcast one will have not only a different perspective on the exam, but a clear path on what is required to accomplish one of the top industry certifications, the ISC2 CISSP.
