    Not a bad buy

    After having read several other CISSP prep books I found this the best one yet. It helped me through some of the domains I wasn't that familiar with eventhough I have been in IT for quite some time. Overall I would say you can not go wrong buying this book eventhough it is not the cure that fits all. You still need to crossreference in certain cases and it does not do any harm to also read other books or whitepapers about the different domains.
