This course is designed to first test your knowledge in all 8 domains of the CISSP exam so you know your weak points and can put more study time into those areas. It will give an overview of the MUST-know information for your CISSP exam. It also will give you study tips, how to trigger answers from memories from a psychological standpoint, and teach you study habits’ conducive to learning. The course will also contain an overview of each section of the exam. There will be recommended readings and a weekly quiz along with homework. This is not a boot camp type course but should be used as a MUST-KNOW guide before you take the exam. It will also show you how to reason out answers where you have no previous hands-on experience with that particular topic.

It can also be used as a reminder for the person with a degree in cyber security/security risk management or 5 or more years working in the field to allow them to more easily remember the concepts they learned in school or in the field. There will also be a final exam to allow you to know where you stand at the end of the course and compare that to your score at the very beginning of the course to see how well you have learned the material.

This is a graded course. Included in the grading will be your homework, all tests, and quizzes along with your homework and final exam grade. Only the initial: ”where do I stand at the beginning of the course test will NOT be counted you’re your final grade. If you are maintaining a 93% score at the time of the final you will be exempt from it and receive a score of whatever your average is or you can opt to take the test to see if you can increase your grade. However, if you do take it and for some reason get a lower grade that lower grade will be the grade averaged to your existing average. You must get a 70% or better to pass.
