  • Is CISSP training effective for the exam? What are the priority domains for study?

    Our CISSP certification training is designed to help you pass the exams on your first attempt. With a hands-on learning approach and Global Learning Framework, the CISSP training not only gives you the confidence to pass the exam but also helps you retain knowledge beyond the exam.

    While comprehensive preparation across all eight CISSP domains is essential for success, understanding their relative weightage on the exam can guide strategic study efforts.
    According to the (ISC)² CISSP Exam Outline, the approximate weightage for each domain is as follows:

    Domains Average Weight
    1. Security and Risk Management 15%
    2. Asset Security 10%
    3. Security Architecture and Engineering 13%
    4. Communication and Network Security 13%
    5. Identity and Access Management (IAM) 13%
    6. Security Assessment and Testing 12%
    7. Security Operations 13%
    8. Software Development Security 11%
    Total 100%

    However, it's crucial to remember:

    • Weightage can vary slightly from exam to exam.
    • Neglecting domains with lower weightage could still lead to missed questions and a lower score.
    • Exam questions often integrate concepts from multiple domains, requiring a holistic understanding.
