CISSP self-assessment quiz: Check your CISSP test knowledge

Take this CISSP self-assessment quiz to check your general knowledge of CISSP test topics and learn where you need to hone your skills.

Are you preparing to take the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification exam? Before moving forward with SearchSecurity's CISSP Essentials Security School, be sure to take this self-assessment quiz to gain an understanding of what you already know and in which areas you need to do more studying.

The questions are from the upcoming 7th edition of expert exam trainer Shon Harris's CISSP All-In-One Study Guide, published by McGraw-Hill. The quiz offers a sampling of the topics and domains you will see in the upcoming lessons.

This multimedia quiz features interactive components designed to resemble the interactive questions on the CISSP exam. Question types include multiple-choice/single-response, multiple-choice/multiple-response, drag-and-drop pair matching, and "hot zone" questions that require selecting the appropriate area in a graphical image. An 80% score is considered a passing grade. Use the question list menu just above the quiz area to go back or skip ahead.
