You see that at the glance your CISSP prep course.

You see what you’ve already learned (purple), things you need to review (orange), and what you haven’t yet gone through. You see that for each domain, and you can expand a domain to see which subtopics you still need to study more.

Did you know the CISSP exam will focus on your weakest areas?

After your CISSP exam, if you talk with other participants, they'll all describe a test focused on totally different topics. However, they will all describe a test focused on whatever topics they feel least comfortable with.

As soon as you answer any questions wrong, the exam will adjust. You'll see more and more, often more and more difficult, questions about the areas you got wrong.

In a similar way, our MasterClass will guide you to study the exact areas you might still struggle with. If the real exam hones in on your weaknesses, you won't feel surprised or helpless. You'll know you can answer the questions and get the certification, no matter what the exam throws at you.

Direct answers
from expert teachers
to your questions

You’ll have an easy time preparing for your CISSP certification with everything you need for the CISSP exam. The video lessons make even the trickiest concepts clear and practical.

However, with such a wide range of topics, you might have
some questions about specific topics. If you find yourself
wondering about something, you have access to some of
the top experts in the industry. You get direct, personal answers to all your question.

The CISSP training adjusts to your schedule and keeps you on track

No matter how much you can study each day or week, the CISSP training will adjust to your schedule and keep you on track.

Study like you have no other life

If you can put the rest of your life on hold for a while, you can study for the exam very quickly. We routinely guide people through it all in a week. It’s a bit brutal, but doable.

Study while juggling a job and family

If you can’t just tell your spouse to deal with the kids for a week, this is the best pace for you. You will likely need 4 - 10 weeks to prepare for the exam.

Study when your other responsibilities leave you with time

If you’re busy and don’t want to adjust your schedule significantly, you should know that the CISSP certification course will take a few months. But you absolutely can do it.

The most common reason people fail the exam

The most common reason people fail the CISSP exam is that they prepare for it as if it was a technical exam.

Sure, you need to study a wide range of technical information. But even if you can recite the entire official 1,300-page CISSP training book, you can easily fail the exam.

Many of the questions offer you multiple correct answers. You need to pick the option that is best for the organization.

In other words, you need to think more like a CEO than a typical security practitioner.

Here’s an example of what that means in practice:

The Destination
Certification CISSP
MasterClass

The video lessons are the heart of the MasterClass.

You learn one clearly defined topic in each video. In addition
to the technical side, you immediately also understand the
bigger-picture considerations you will be tested on in the
CISSP exam.

We’ve done our best to make the content easy to consume.
With over 170 videos, each topic is in bite-sized chunks.
We can’t promise that you’ll find every video fascinating, but
hopefully you’ll appreciate our efforts to make the ideas
more engaging than a typical security lecture.

Detailed written explanations

You get a clear, written summary of every critical concept. These summaries expand on the topics to provide a greater depth of understanding. They include all the tables and diagrams we use in the videos to make it easy for you to dig deeper.
