    I'm betting everyone has to wait for the printout.

    I forgot to mention my strange experience. I was dealing with an unusually unfriendly testing center. It felt like the employees enjoy their position of power. The person who walked me to my cube was bragging about the bounty they receive if they catch someone cheating. It was all kinds of weird.

    It seems the test centers experiences are as unique individuals.
    I took my CISSP at the Society of Engineers building in Dubai, and like everything else in Dubai, it was opulent. The proctors were from Kenya and the Philippines so they were deferential. The proctor office was in a separate room from the testing room, but there were cameras everywhere, and a proctor would make rounds during the exam.
    LOL I thought the SoE was a good luck charm so I took my CCNA there - and failed it (took it again a few months later and passed it).
    Never heard of proctors getting a bounty for catching cheaters, that's kind of unnerving since they have a financial interest to accuse testers of cheating.

    Congrats veritas!!!!! After the endorsement it usually takes a week to get the official email. That's how long it took the two that I just endorsed. Again, congrats. So what's next for you? Maybe join me in the OSCP?

    @JoJoCal19: A nap :P

    Seriously though, I need to take rest a little while. I've also been doing some company travel which is leaving me a little frayed at both ends. I have a Bachelor degree I would like to finish and yes the OSCP is also on the mind. We'll see what I manage to cram in next year

    That was my concern as well. I tend to fidget a lot when I'm taking exams due to being nervous, so that only added to the stress.

    Got a notification yesterday that it's going to take the full six weeks and then this shows up in my e-mail this morning:

    Dear veritas_libertas,

    Congratulations! It gives me great pleasure to be the first to address you with the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®) designation!
    Yay!
