Destination CISSP: A Concise Guide.

Warning! You may suffer prizes and discounts.

Study Only What You
Still Need to Learn

The CISSP exam covers a huge range of content. And the exam is built to identify any areas you aren’t comfortable with, so it can ask more questions about those.

You can memorize the official 1300-page study guide word for word to avoid any “weak areas.” However, that’s excessive.

Alternatively, you can focus only on what you don’t yet know well enough to pass the exam.

The latter is how we approach the CISSP exam. Our MasterClass automatically guides you to study the exact topics (or details within topics) you don’t yet handle well enough to pass your exam on the first try.

See how it works on our MasterClass page.

Fit studying to your schedule

If you can put the rest of your life on pause for a couple of weeks, that’s all you need to pass the exam. Just stock up on coffee, bunker yourself at home, and order take out.

On the other hand, if getting the CISSP certification isn’t your only priority, you can extend the MasterClass to several months. You still get a clear schedule to follow and see how you get closer to your goal.

Also, the MasterClass keeps you on track. Even after a break in studying, you can easily jump back in as if nothing happened.

Less effort and less boredom

No matter how you study for the exam, you’ll need to spend a meaningful amount of time doing it.

That time can feel like reading phone books. Or it can be quite engaging.

We truly enjoy teaching security professionals. Part of that is making it as interesting as it can be for our students. You can see some of examples on our MasterClass page.

Jeffrey Rodriguez

Exam pass date: April 8, 2024

I read the official study guide, the all-in-one guide, and watched videos from every source I could find. None of those sources were as clear and concise as the Destination Certification videos and book. I wish I would have found them sooner and saved myself a lot of time.

From the minute I watched the first Master Class video, I knew I had made the right decision on choosing Destination Certification. The content is very engaging and the entire program makes it easy to set a schedule and stick to it. I wanted something that would fit my lifestyle and allow me to go at my own pace. Destination Certification did exactly that. Going into the exam, I felt very confident about the knowledge gained from the course and my ability to know what the answer has to be. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone interested in understanding the fundamentals of security and passing the CISSP exam. Trust the process and think like a CEO.

Destination Certification is the one stop shop to pass the CISSP. I did not need any other resources outside of all of the video courses, flash cards, mind maps, the book, mind maps and the study guide. I am a TERRIBLE test taker and I was able to pass on my first attempt at 130 questions after 3.5 months of consistent studying.

MasterClass is one of the best CISSP exam prep out there. The online videos and contents are very informative. Great one on one sessions with Lou. The live sessions are the best. Rob and Jon are available to answer any questions. "Read the exam question 3 times before you look at the answer!

Ian Squire

I had been studying a long time to take the exam. I stumbled upon the CISSP MindMaps and took the Cryptography Mini MasterClass. I signed up shortly after that and the rest is history. This course helped me organize and pass the exam in a way my many other study resources couldn’t do. I have already started recommending Destination Certification to colleagues.

Sean Mooney

Destination Certification, (Lou, Rob, and John) have expertly condensed the complexities of Cybersecurity into digestible, essential knowledge. This course has polished my two decades of experience, increasing my value to clients and stakeholders. Just follow their lead, trust their process and you can’t go wrong. I highly recommend their course.

Jesse DeGarmo

Exam pass date: February 28, 2024

I actually started thinking about the CISSP in about 2004, with books to prove it. However, I finally arrived at the point in my career where I could see this was long overdue, and Destination Certification made an extremely well-crafted product, that prepared me for the CISSP examine in the best possible way. Even after – it is still enjoyable to revisit the material.

Rob and John present the material in an easy to follow, understand and (the most important part) engaging manner. The mind maps and the knowledge assessments were key to shoring up areas that needed work. The class was invaluable for expanding my knowledge and passing the exam. Will definitely be taking classes from them in the future.

Justin Arias

Exam pass date: January 31, 2024

With two weeks until the exam, I needed a clear and concise course direction to study for the CISSP. Destination Certification provided an excellent course which concisely discussed the main points and tie the domains together. The overall platform provides great resources for each person to learn and retain the information in their way, whether that is video, text, or knowledge checks. I was able to pass my exam right at question 125 and I know Destination Certification had a huge impact on the overall result.

Ziaul Karim

Exam pass date: January 31, 2024

Not only is everything about Destination Certification visually appealing, the content is truly fantastic. Everything is laid out in a logical manner with videos, book, assessments, all presented in an easy-to-understand format. Rob and John really bring this material to life, and the correct attitude and mindset is presented throughout, so by the end of your learning it is second nature (which is crucial for the exam). I encourage you to conquer the CISSP mountain as I did, with Destination CISSP as your path and guide.

Himanshu Dua

When I initially enrolled, I was apprehensive about whether investing a substantial amount of money would be worthwhile. However, I can assure you that Rob and John are just genius. They not only helped me pass the exam but also transformed me into an excellent security engineer. Their teaching has become invaluable in my professional career, making the CISSP journey significantly easier for me. Thank you. I'm really happy that I found you.

After seeing so much praise about the Destination Certification Masterclass, I decided to give it a try, and I’m so glad I did! The resources provided in the class were so much easier to digest than sitting down and reading through hundreds of pages of text in other study guides.

A big thank you to the team for putting it all together and hosting the live study sessions!
