IMAG3392

After studying for 42 hours in 12 days (from 2018/09/14 to 2018/09/25), I cleared the ISC2 CISSP-ISSEP exam this afternoon and it’s really lucky for me, probably, to be the first exam taker who passed this exam in Taiwan.

The following is what I used to prepare for this exam:

  1. Official (ISC) 2® Guide to the CISSP®-ISSEP® CBK® ((ISC) 2 Press) 1st Edition
  2. Systems Engineering Fundamentals Kindle Edition
  3. Official (ISC)² Guide to the CSSLP, Second Edition

  5. Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CISSP-ISSMP CBK ((ISC)2 Press) 2nd Edition
  6. Official (ISC)2 Guide to the ISSAP CBK ((ISC)2 Press) 2nd Edition
  7. The Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CCSP CBK 2nd Edition
  8. Official (ISC)2® Guide to the CAP® CBK® ((ISC)2 Press) 2nd Edition

My exam preparation is completely directed by the ISC2 CISSP-ISSEP exam outline. The most common references used for the ISSEP by domain from ToniHardy and the ISC2 official references are quite helpful. Having passed CSSLP exam helps as well.

The milestones are updated as follows:

  • Milestone #1: PMI + CISSP
    • 2018/04/09 ACP
    • 2018/04/27 PBA
    • 2018/06/19 CISSP
    • 2018/07/10 RMP
  • Milestone #2: ISACA
    • 2018/07/24 CISM
    • 2018/08/13 CRISC
    • 2018/08/28 CISA
  • Milestone #3: ISC2
    • 2018/09/07 CCSP (originally scheduled on 2018/09/14)
    • 2018/09/13 CSSLP (originally scheduled on 2018/09/28)
    • 2018/09/25 CISSP-ISSEP (bonus)
  • Milestone #4: EC-Council
    • 2018/10/15 CEH
    • 2018/10/29 ECSA

Moving forward is the best strategy of retreat! I’ll keep moving.

    Congratulations on your ISSEP! You’ve done a lot in a short period of time. I’m assuming that your young and have a long way to go. Curious about how much of the ISOs you studied and where you got them from, as it costs an “arm and a leg” if you buy the whole ISO outright?

      Thanks, Roy. In fact, I’ve been in the IT industry for 20+ years. All the certification exams I passed reflect my experiences, expertise, and something new I learned while I prepared for the exams; and this is my commitment to be excellent.

      The cost to be certified as a professional is very very high, but I, as a co-founder of Amicliens, decided to do so this year so as to deliver quality software, increase customer’s trust and build personal professional career as a trainer. I’ve added ISO OBP links to the ISO related references and people can buy ISO standards there. Most of the books are available from Aamzon. NIST special publications are free. I’ve paid for all the materials I used if any of them is charged.
