What’s the most time effective way to study for the CISSP? I’m already at least semi knowledgeable - without studying I can get in the high 50s on the Boson practice tests, and just need to brush up on a few areas (by no means an accomplishment - providing as a data point to indicate I know more than nothing).

The 11th hour was the only book I used to pass! Hope that helps


Makes sense EY1.

No practice test will simulate be real exam

Loved the Boson exam prep !
That and a study buddy to quizz and review questions off of other was 😘

Check out the LearnZapp CISSP app which has a huge collection of quality practice questions/tests, flash cards etc. You can run through quick set study questions (10) continuously free, which pulls from the larger practice test bank. Unlock all the practice tests for $3 for a week prior the exam. As someone very knowledgeable going into the exam, this was still immensely helpful.

About to start MBA program and have a formal recruiting coffee chat with Bain via outreach to women MBAs. Curious what y’all think are some good coffee chat questions for those going from one consulting firm to another. I’m interested in sustainability consulting so I plan on asking about Bain’s services in that area, but not sure what else might be helpful to start the convo, especially if they person I’m talking to doesn’t know about sustainability. Thoughts?

Have you ever been ghosted by a recruiter that added you as a connection on LinkedIn? I saw an interesting job posting and reached out to the person who posted (the hiring mgr). 2 days later, a recruiter from the company sent me an invite to connect but didn't include a message. 3 days after that, I sent them a message asking for a call to learn more about the role. It's been almost two weeks now of total silence. Why did they send me the invite if they had no plans to follow up with me?
