I just found some more FREE CISSP review material and practice exams. One exam is 100 questions, the other 250.
I added the new links to my Teach Yourself Security post, in which I recommend several CISSP resources — see halfway down the page, in red: New Links added 11/24/14

If you’re looking for an insightful server audit, and you’re dauntless, you might want to jump on this train.
First, why do you need to be dauntless?

For my original review of Acerno, see A Review of ACL Acerno. It still seems that I’m the only one who ever took the time to review the product (versus marketing blurbs, which are all over the ‘net), which appears to be a statement regarding its popularity.
Despite the poor popularity, since they updated it AND made it free, I decided to dive in for another look.
Note: This add-in is not just for auditors! Any one who regularly reviews data should consider using this software.

I had bypassed door #1 and door #2.
My new colleagues were not happy.
