    been wanting to take mine.. did you get specific books or software to test with? All I've been reading is one book so far but the test questions refer to stuff that I don't even think people use anymore.

    Thank You

    Probably CISSP.. but I'll take all of next year to study for that one.. I heard it's a bear.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Certifi...y_Professional

    Pass the CISSP exam with a scaled score of 700 points or greater. The exam is multiple choice, consisting of 250 questions with four options each, to be answered over a period of six hours.
    I do everything in I.T. but I want to focus more of my efforts towards the I.T. security field as much as possible... more so than I do now.

    Sybex Study Guide.. it's a book with practice exams that are on a CD-Rom. (Maromedia Flash) The practice exams go over each of the 9 chapters of the book.. It was good to study from. Honestly.. I thought I was going to fail the test as I was doing it.. because I got so use to the questions in the practice test , but I got a score of "810" on a scale from 750 to 900.. I'll take it and run! LOL

    Sorry if I seem kind of winged up.. but I'm drinking some well deserved Mojito's right now.

    · Hardware troubleshooting includes, but not limited to: Desktop workstations, Rack servers, Blackberry and Treo mobile phones, large network multi-function printers, IPTV software and equipment, VoIP software equipment, Cisco Switches, Cisco Routers, Tape Auto loaders.
    · Software troubleshooting includes, but not limited to: Microsoft Office applications, Many other Applications, Technical and Security Bulletins (patches). Windows XP, Windows 2003, Red Hat Linux, Exchange, SMS, BackUp Exec, BES, Goodlink, Trend Micro Office Scan, and various other software.
