Welcome, I am Thor Pedersen, and I am here to help you pass your CISSP certification.

With over 400,000 enrollments from 190+ countries, my CISSP and CISM courses are both the “Best Selling” and “Highest Rated” here on Udemy.

In this course I will cover how to approach practice tests, how to deconstruct practice questions, time management, how to make your own CISSP study plan, and finally you get 125 HARD CISSP questions in a full CISSP practice test.
The questions on these tests have the same domain weight as the real CISSP exam questions does.


Getting your CISSP certification now is a very smart career move.

1. The CISSP certification is the gold standard for IT Security certifications.

2. There are more job openings for CISSPs in the US (134,000) than there are CISSP certified individuals (94,000).

3. The average CISSP salary in the US is over $130,000 a year.


What our other students are saying about my CISSP courses:

  • I passed the CISSP with the ISC Book and Thor’s lectures and practice questions. Enough said! (Warren, 5-stars)
  • Hi Thor, I used your test and videos and passed the exam at first attempt. I scored your tests above 75% and real test was bit challenging than them. Thank you Shan (Shan, 5-stars)
  • I just passed my CISSP and used your question banks for study. All domains were covered and explanations on the questions were through. (John, 5-stars)
  • Of all the practice tests have paid for this one is the most helpful because it gave precise results so I am able to focus on the week points. I also appreciate how quickly Thor updated the test to reflect the new CAT style exam. (Kim, 5-stars)
  • This is my third course experience and Thor is my third instructor. I gave Thor a 5-star because of his knowledge, his grasp of English language, and his attitude. I love how Thor can explain complicated concepts clearly and make them easy to understand. I love how humble and polite his attitude is. I also like the fact that he is attentive and responsive to my questions. (Jin, 5-stars)


At the end of the test you will get an explanation for each question and explaining to why the right answer is the right answer.

You can see the total percentage score for the entire test as well as a weighted percent score for each of the 8 CISSP domains.

You can review each question and sort them by CISSP knowledge area, correct answers, wrong answers, skipped questions and questions marked for review.

The questions on these tests have the same domain weight as the real CISSP exam does.

  1. Security and Risk Management – 20 questions
  2. Asset Security – 13 questions
  3. Security Engineering – 15 questions
  4. Communications and Network Security – 15 questions
  5. Identity and Access Management (IAM) – 16 questions
  6. Security Assessment and Testing – 14 questions
  7. Security Operations – 20 questions
  8. Software Development Security – 12 questions

I recommend students to do 1,500-3,000 easy/mid CISSP practice questions and 1,000-1,500 HARD CISSP practice questions before the exam.

I only know of 3 hard CISSP practice sets: my own hard questions, Boson questions, and SNT. Wentz Wu also has hard questions on his CISSP blog, but not as full practice tests.

Do multiple CISSP certification practice tests like this one, do the full 4 hours and 125 questions to see how you handle it. This is as much mental stamina and reading the questions right and answering from an IT Security managers point of view, as it is the actual knowledge.

You can take this CISSP certification practice test as many times as you want, the questions and the answer order is randomized.

On hard questions you will score lower. It is normal to score 80%+ on easy/mid questions and 50-60% on hard questions.

The point of all questions is to find the gaps in your knowledge, learn how to deconstruct questions, argue WHY the answer you chose is the RIGHT answer in this scenario, making you ready for exam day.


Prepare for the 2021 version of the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) Certification Exam which is what you will be tested on until the next CISSP curriculum update in 2024.
