My notes: I think this can be a good thing, here are a few reasons why:
- Maximum 3 hour exam, same questions and difficulty, but you won’t hit the 4 and 5 hour wall. <Definite win>
- The same questions, same weight as before just less of them <win>
- Minimum 100 questions, maximum 150 questions vs. 250 questions in the current version (still 25 beta questions). Less scenarios less brain-melt <Definite win>
- No ability to review, a little conflicted on this, but probably a good thing not rethinking answers you already did <meh>
- No changes to the curriculum: “As the CISSP exam content outline and passing standard for the linear and CAT versions of the examination are exactly the same, candidate preparation should not change based on the format of the examination.” Nothing to restudy, keep doing what you are doing <Definite win>
The (ISC)² announcement:
Effective Dec. 18, 2017: (ISC)² will introduce Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) for all English CISSP exams worldwide. CISSP CAT enables you to prove your knowledge by answering fewer items and completing the exam in half the time.
