Passing the CISSP Exam

I met a guy who was gracious enough to tell us how he passed his CISSP exam this last year.  Thus, here are the links that will help you do the same.

I passed my CISSP last year.  I didn’t attend any boot camps.  I bought the Shon Harris book for the most part along with taking as many quizzes as possible.  Below are some additional tools:
