The MCSA 2012 stuff is still relatively fresh in my mind, and I had a forced MS training class for 2016 because of SA vouchers that were expiring, so I figured, what the heck. I'll go for it!

I just recently completed 70-411, so for that part of 743, I'm good except for the new SDN stuff and the few things they added to DNS. So I'm focusing more on relearning AD FS/WAP and very heavily on the 740 content with a new lab that I built. I think I'll be sitting for this in the next week or so. ]]>

<![CDATA[CCSP - Failed TWICE. I'm done.]]> http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/isc-sscp-cissp/130896-ccsp-failed-twice-im-done.html Tue, 23 Jan 2018 12:04:50 GMT Hey peeps. Failed the CCSP yesterday on my second attempt with a 681 (700 required to pass). My first attempt scored a ~618. I took the exam... Hey peeps.

Failed the CCSP yesterday on my second attempt with a 681 (700 required to pass).

My first attempt scored a ~618.

I took the exam the first time after completing my Master's Degree in Information Assurance with a focus on cloud security and using the ISC2 Official CCSP Study Guide by Ben Malisow. The official study guide is worse than useless. If I had completely memorized every single page of the study guide, I would only know about 20% of the material presented on the test.

After the first failure, I began a hardcore study program that included the following:Altogether, I drilled on the practice questions in these resources (about 700 questions in all) and scored 90%.

Maybe 5% of the test questions I used appeared on the actual exam in some form. So, the practice questions will create a very false sense of confidence.

THE EXAM:
As others have noted, it is a poor quality test. Many questions are constructed with poor grammar (obviously from someone for whom english is not a first language). There are probably 10 questions or so written specifically to confuse or deceive you with the wording. There were MANY questions on REST and SOAP APIs that were more detailed than ANY of the information about REST and SOAP in the study materials. You will either need to be an application developer and intimately know how to use these APIs or use a separate programming resource to study how they work and why. There are matchy-match questions about what security standards/laws go with what country (easy if you memorize - but be sure to memorize ALL of them). There were two sets of questions (about 4-5 each) based on a detailed real-world scenario and how to accomplish a specific goal in the MOST secure manor. I have no idea how I did on these because either every option seemed right or none of them did. The study material spend a LOT of time on which storage types go with which platform, but the questions on the test on these topics are all asked in ways the material doesn't prepare you for (i.e. don't expect to be able to match volume and object storage with IAAS). If you are security professional active in the field, I would say you are at the greatest disadvantage for this exam - because you may know a right way to do something but the test question is looking for the answer based on the CCSP CBK, not the "real world."

I have $1500 in test and materials now and I will NOT be attempting it a third time. There would be no satisfaction for me to pass the test on a third attempt, and if I failed it a third time I would probably drive into oncoming traffic.

I have a number of colleagues who have passed the exam after taking the ISC week-long bootcamp class with the exam at the end. I assume the ISC instructor basically gives you the info for the test questions they know will be on the test since it's their exam. If your goal is to get the cert to check a box or get the credential, I would recommend doing the bootcamp. These forums are full of stories of very competent security pros who didn't pass this exam the first time around, so you're likely looking at $1200 to take it twice anyway. Might as well go all the way on the bootcamp cost and feed the ISC money machine. ]]>

difference between a firewall and a proxy server http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/sans-institute-giac-certifications/130895-difference-between-firewall-proxy-server.html Tue, 23 Jan 2018 11:45:42 GMT I'm preparing for my Sec401 and I'm wondering what is the real difference between a firewall which filter traffic and a proxy which redirect/forward traffic?

Is there any security gains implementering a proxy server ...let's say for instance if you have a webserver residing in your DMZ, hosting your website with an API which connects to a DB server in your internal network which registers users info inputed on your website? Webserver is connected directly to the firewall (192.168.200.xxx) and the DB server(192.168.222.xxx) resides "behind" the firewall. Not using vlans and the web api from webserver to db server use dynamic ports and http(80)?

I'm arguing with my boss and 3rd party developers firm who are stating that is no security gain implementing a proxy server. I'm thinking that the proxy is "hidding" my 192.168.222.xxx network from beeing seen from the internet...or i'm ...how they (boss+developers) call me: paranoic, overengineering and so on:lol:...? ]]>

Should I do my test Yet? (70-698) http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/windows-10-exams/130894-should-i-do-my-test-yet-70-698-a.html Tue, 23 Jan 2018 10:57:57 GMT Hi,

I've been studying since October because I want to pass the 70-698. I saw a post a while back when someone passed their exam and they recommended staying clear from the test sites such as measureup since their questions are way to hard compared to the exam and can throw you off.

I have watched all CBT Nuggets and watched the 250 videos from ITDVDs and read some of the Technet. I also go on my Anki flashcard app EVERYDAY to remember all 800+ flashcards I have, to cram everything in.

Do you think I should take the exam now? I don't think I can possibly do anymore studying as I am burning out and is driving me nuts now haha. ]]>

Lab switch Input http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/ccna-ccent/130892-lab-switch-input.html Tue, 23 Jan 2018 05:28:58 GMT I'm thinking about getting 2 or 3 switches for my lab since GNS3 can't really do switching well at all. That Etherswitch module doesn't really cut it.

Been browsing some of the switches on ebay and would just like to know if these 2 would be suitable for a lab.

I recall reading that all switches should been IOS 15, I think? Also does the feature set matter much on a switch for lab purposes? Thanks for any help! ]]>

ITIL Intermediate Certification - Continual Service Improvement http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/itil-certifications/130891-itil-intermediate-certification-continual-service-improvement.html Tue, 23 Jan 2018 05:05:59 GMT A week ago I sat for the Intermediate CSI exam, which consisted of 8 questions (scenario-based) that needed to be concluded in 90 minutes. This was... A week ago I sat for the Intermediate CSI exam, which consisted of 8 questions (scenario-based) that needed to be concluded in 90 minutes. This was my first Intermediate exam and was required by my job.

First, the exam. It was very straightforward. You need to analyze the scenario then choose an answer that best aligns with the scenario. They grade the answers on a scale: 5 points for the answer that best aligned with the scenario, 3 points for second best, 1 point for the third best, and 0 points for the distractor.

Second, the exam platform. I used the PeopleCert exam platform. Very easy to use and the proctor (invigilator) was in Greece and spoke English really well. You will need to have a way of showing the proctor what is around your computer, which needs to be clear of most items. If you get kicked off of the system, through no fault of your own like cheating, the clock will stop until you log back in. This happened several times due to an ISP related issue.

My exam started at 5:30 pm, I went through the steps to show that the area was clear of papers, and was given access to the first question. I pushed the button for access to the first scenario and started reading it...for about ten seconds. Then the scenario went blank and I lost my connection. I reconnected but couldn't proceed forward. My one normal nerve was starting to fray at that moment. The proctor called my phone and we decided that I would find another computer to use. Soooo...I had to find another computer (it was on my desk in another office), set up the webcam, download and install the security software, and get logged back in. This took me until about 6:05 pm. Nerves are starting to snap and my legs are bouncing all over the place.

First question pops back up and I still have nearly a full 90 minutes left...phew! I start knocking out the questions like they are nothing...this is easy. Then that nagging voice in the back of my head starts talking smack...you guys know what I'm talking about. It is the one that said "Whoa! This is tooooooo easy! Slow your roll, buddy! It's a trap!" Dang voices! I got to the sixth question when my connection failed, again! This was getting very tedious. I log off, log back in, and there I was, back at question six. Keep on chugging along. Finished the eighth question and can't believe I was done. I am not one to wait around, questioning myself, so I hit the finished exam button. I think I had a survey but can't remember. I got my score and nearly fell out of my chair! That damn voice in my head was wrong. I nailed seven questions with the full 5 points and one with the second best 3 pointer. 38 total points out of 40, giving me a 95%! Woohoo!

Lastly, I credit a common-sense approach as taught by the Pink Elephant course I took (all intermediate and above exams require a class, virtual or butt-in-seat, before you can take the exam) for helping me pass. The information was pretty easy to understand (Axelos isn't trying to mess with you with their questions and the Pink Elephant information more than adequately covers the knowledge you need) and the strategies that Pink Elephant provides to you are all you need to be successful with the exam. While I have TQM training, I have little to no professional ITIL experience. That said, if I can do it, you can do it too!

On to OSA! ]]>
