Studying for the CISSP Exam

I don't know how many of my readers are IT folks familiar with the CISSP exam but if you are you know how bad it is.  I am taking it again this summer, studying everyday a little bit more and more.

250 IT security questions in 6 hours.  Thankfully the answers are all multiple choice and you can write in the book, unlike computer based exams where you are given a scrap sheet of paper to take notes.  

Fortunately there is a good amount of study material out there, that and I am familiar with the topics and the exam as I passed it on 2004.  

You don't want to fail this baby at $550 a pop!  There is an incentive for passing the exam as I get a nice pay raise for a certain amount of years, and then have to recertify.
