Two CISSP questions:

1.  How long does it take to get your results after you take the exam?
2.  When do they ask you for your resume to evaluate your credentials?

Thanks.

Firstly, ISC2 mandates that a CISSP candidate possesses a minimum of five years of professional experience in the information security field or four years plus a college degree

You are typically notified 2-3 weeks after the test if you passed or failed. Then you have to fill and send in the endorsement form and potentially go through the audit process if you selected for it.

From what I've heard, a small portion of the candidates get selected for auditing. They are called, asked a few questions related to their experience and possibly for references to support their work histories.

I would not worry too much about it as I've known about 30 CISSP candidates who passed the test and have never been audited of heard of anybody getting audited

cccure.org - if you don't get about 80% on those tests consistently, i would not recommend taking the real one
