If you want to pass the CISSP exam on the first attempt, then make this book your PRIMARY study guide. If you are not planning on taking the CISSP exam, but you work in Information Security, then make this book part of your required reading. It is an invaluable tool to any security practitioner. Shon Harris has updated both the content and the layout of this newest edition. Key terms are defined in separate attention-grabbing boxes. This is a huge help when you are stuck on a difficult concept that you want to review, such as the concepts that make up “The Common Criteria”, or the seemingly infinite terms associated with the Telecommunications and Network Security Domain. If you are a person who uses a highlighter, or if you annotate passages on an e-reader, these attention boxes are fantastic for easily isolating the important details. The CISSP exam is peppered with many “scenario-based” questions, and Shon has updated her end-of-chapter quizzes to include these types of questions. The quizzes provided on the disc (included with the book) are comprehensive across each domain. The questions offered on the disc will test your true knowledge of the subjects. The Practice Exam book is the perfect companion for the main book, offering detailed explanations of why one answer is “The Best” choice for a particular question. The folks who compose the questions for the CISSP exam tend to lean towards the “sinister”, attempting to trip you up with subtle and sometimes vague wording. Shon writes her questions in a similar style, making you really think about the material to derive the best answer rather than simply memorizing passages from the book. Her questions and the answer choices will get you into the correct mindset to pass the exam. Don’t just take her practice exams once and move on – come back and take the same exams again. Even if you start to memorize the answers, Shon’s quizzes will help you pick out the important wording of a question so that “sinister and vague” will no longer trip you. Your studies of the “Common Body of Knowledge” will take you to other sources of information, and while this is encouraged, you will see that none of those sources compare with the directed focus and thought-provoking approach offered in Shon’s book. I used 4 different sources for my studies, but Shon’s book remained as my “go to” book for clear, concise, and accurate information. Do not be discouraged by the size of the book; when you are taking the test and are presented with a particularly tricky question, you will be thankful for all the detail that is offered in this book. Don’t underestimate its value. This is simply the best book on the market for not only understanding Information Security on a practical and professional level, but also for passing the CISSP exam.
