Any CISSP's on the board?
I just want to pick your brain? How'd you find the test? Difficult? Tedious? What was your best resource? Did you take a class? How much studying before hand? When did you feel you were ready to take it? How many times before you passed? Was it easy to find a job afterward? Where'd you take it? Did you have the experience before you took it? Or did you take it, then get the experience (and then get the official cert)?
I've always been interested in info sec and have dabbled in and followed it for a couple years. But just recently have I found myself really considering a change in career paths. Just kind of curious about the best approach to this.
