Bruce Passed ISC2 CISSP-ISSAP Exam on 14th November

It’s a lovely afternoon and peaceful moment to enjoy the view looking out through the floor-to-ceiling window from the office.

When the ISSAP score report disclosed “Congratulations!”, my goal has been achieved pursuing the planned certifications from ISC2. I spent around 4 months in total studying intensively and finally passed the six ISC2 exams: CISSP, CCSP, CSSLP, CISSP-ISSEP, CISSP-ISSMP, and CISSP-ISSAP.

After studying for 40 hours within 8 days (from 2018/11/06 to 2018/11/13), I cleared the ISC2 CISSP-ISSAP (Information Systems Security Architecture Professional) exam today. This exam is one of the 3 CISSP concentrations. I would say the level of difficulty would be ISSAP < ISSMP < ISSEP.

The ISACA CGEIT is the last mile for me to declare success achieving my annual goal.

My plan of the year is revised 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
    • 2018/10/09 CEH (originally scheduled on 2018/10/15)
    • 2018/10/12 ECSA (originally scheduled on 2018/10/29)

    • 2018/10/27, PSPO I
    • 2018/10/28, PSD
  • Final Optimization
    • 2018/11/06 CISSP-ISSMP
    • 2018/11/14 CISSP-ISSAP
    • 2018/11/30 CGEIT (projected)

Addon, 2019/12/10:

When I passed the ISSAP exam, I was really excited as all my annual objectives were achieved and I didn’t note down the materials I used.

The following are the materials I used:

  1. CISSP-ISSAP exam outline
  2. All the CBKs I have (CBKs of CCSP, CSSLP, CISSP, ISSMP, ISSAP, and ISSEP-old version)
  3. NIST SP 800 series
  4. ISSAP CBK Suggested References (I bought as many as I can).

I didn’t use any test engine but the practice questions in the CBKs.
