RE: CISSP Boot Camps

There really is no way to cram 3+ years worth of security experience
into 7 days of training. I suspect the CISSP boot camp will expose
people to the '30 mile wide' (10 Security Domains) body of knowledge,
but could only go 2 inches deep ...per domain.

When I took the CISSP test, it asked questions much deeper than 2 inches
per domain. They (ISC)2 REALLY don't want paper CISSP's. You can't
simply pay for this cert.

The concept behind any boot camp is, even if you have no experience, you
can pass "the" test at the end of our boot camp. Without any actualy
security industry experience, people shouldn't be able to take the test
anyway. Are they screening people for the minimum experience?

Also, they only have 7 days to get this infor out there. If you 'don't
get' any concept, they simply press on (and there goes your test). They
have a ton of material to go over.

Just my 2 cents...

All,

I am currently studying for the CISSP and I
was wondering are the CISSP boot camps worth the money? I really like
the idea of taking 7 straight days to study for the exam and then take
the test immediately afterwards.  I am currently considering taking a
boot camp class from The Training Camp who appear to be the official
(ISC)2 training program.  I would be interested in hearing from people
that have taken this course in the past and I would also like to hear
from people that have taken courses from other training organizations.
Thanks for the advice in advance.

Regards,
Patrick
