    Hi,

    Are there any good resources for practice exam prep questions? something that I can get an idea of how the exam questions are phrased etc?

    Here are a couple of good resources regarding CCSK questions.

    Our Prep Kit, which has a few sample questions: https://cloudsecurityalliance.org/education/ccsk/study-guide/

    Or the CCSK community, which offers access to instructors and people who have passed the exam: https://circle.cloudsecurityalliance.org/communities/community-home?CommunityKey=230726e2-f7cc-4fbf-a08e-7755e0407806

    hi Kevin,
    You have probably already reviewed the questions that are in my course.
    Beyond that, Graham Thompson's book has a lot of fairly realistic questions, and a test exam as well.
    There is actually a promotion on that book at McGraw-Hill I saw on LI.

    Thanks Peter,

    Yes have already reviewed your questions in your course, are your questions on par with the exam?

    And further yes, I do have Grahams book, and briefly looked at the questions that come with it. I didn't know how inline they were to the exam or not, but you answered that question, so thank you.

    There is also a course on Udemy with 3 practice tests, each test having 60 questions each.

    Hi,

    Thanks @ Moulinth and Martin K , for your responses.

    I bought 2 off Udemy, 1 which was really good but then for whatever reason was removed teh very next day by Udemy (guess they violated some policy), otherwise i would be recommending that one.
    The 2nd one I didn't find very helpful. Had a lot of practice questions but these were really geared towards just pasting a section in teh Study Guide, searching and applying the result. ​It is teh highest rated in Udemy but tbh I wouldn't recommend it.

    As I lost one from Udemy, I had tried Martins recommendation from Whizlabs and ended up buying those (on $16), these were very good (same as teh ones i lost in Udemy) and would recommend those for anyone looking.

    Long story short, after a fair bit of study (official CSA guide), practice tests mentioned above, Course by Peter Van Eijk (questions in there too) , CCSK book and questions by Graham Thompson questions , I can say that I officially passed the test , first time of asking .... some light relief while I'm trying to get CISSP done.

    So thanks to all

    Thanks..

    No I wouldn't say one was better than the other, but the book uses real life examples for explanation, which just solidified the topics more. This may have helped with some questions, as I didn't reference the guide for all the answers (could have also been CISSP study knowledge :) )

    Only thing that stood out, knowing its open book, is a big distractor, not only when doing the exam but also studying, maybe this is why i subconsciously went through 2 books. I had a long break from when i originally did teh online training, so i did have to start again in a manner of speaking.

    Thanks, roughly 4-5 weeks of study , but I was already familiar with some topics, just had to anchor it the CSA study way.

    Hi Kevin,

    Congrats on passing the exam. Do you remember the name of the Udemy course (practice tests) that was most helpful? Do you remember the name of the one that you'd not recommend?

    Currently I only see the following four options by the following course authors:

    • Anurag R.
    • Yogesh Gupta
    • Anand Uppor
    • Dynamic Steps


    Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    Hi

    Apologies, I didn't get a notification for replies to the Thread, so didn't see this.

    Anurag R, is one of two I bought that is still on there, of which I wouldn't recommend. The other one I had was removed from Udemy.

    I would recommend the Whizlabs instead. https://www.whizlabs.com/learn/course/ccsk-pt

    I started a separate thread relating to Discord, and would also advise using that for practice questions and general knowledge testing. The CCSK thread is not as active as say CCSP, but as more join, then of course will get busier.

    Update: Watching the CCSP thread, there is a lot of cross cert discussion with CCSK.
