By completing this course ( practice test) you will be able to test your knowledge before appearing for actual exam. PCI DSS ISA exam and QSA exams require full knowledge of many aspects. I struggled a lot to find test exams when I was preparing for my PCI DSS ISA exam .

During the preparation I jot down many points and questions . Same are presented here for your success. I wanted this course to be free, however Udemy platform probably doesn't allow test course as free subscription.  Actual PCI DSS exam has only 75 questions , however this course is for preparation hence there are 25 extra questions!

Good Luck for your PCI DSS certification.
