ISP Test Tips

Know What to Expect Before You Test

Sometimes the most difficult part of an exam is understanding what the test is about. The type of questions, how to address the questions, time to devote to the questions and test strategy are but a few concerns facing certification applicants.

I know how you feel, because I was once in your shoes.

Dear security professional. A few years ago, I earned ISP Certification. Certificate number 117 to be exact. Prior to testing I developed a study program to prepare me for the test. As a result I wrote the ISP Certification-The Industrial Security Professional Exam Manual.  It has been one of my most helpful books and is in the hands of hundreds of professionals.

In this eBook, I give you additional knowledge to navigate the actual test. I don’t provide the answers, but simply demonstrate the types of questions you’ll face, how to use study resource, how to focus your study efforts to what’s important and how to best answer different types of questions. This method helped me finish the test with time to spare.

The key is  learning test taking methodology

You already know your business. Chances are you’ve either been at it for many years,you’ve had a great mentor and you are familiar with NISPOM requirements. That’s what we call secret number one, you are a technical expert and know the business of protecting classified information.
