Although the guide I received from taking the seminar from ISC2 was the definitive source for exam prep, this book was somewhat helpful. It's a much easier read than some of the other CISSP books I've experienced. Because the authors attempt to make this extremely dry subject a little more interesting and succeed somewhat. If you're not taking the seminar you should definitely read this book. Also note that there is a handy companion App for iDevices that allows you to electronically go over the sample questions from the book. If you're going to the seminar I'd give this a 3 star rating. If not, I add another star because it's value definitely goes up in the absence of the ISC2 classroom guide.

I looked into the CISSP classroom training, but the class was cancelled at the last minute. I purchased the CISSP for Dummies book with low expectations of real results. Also, this book has alot less pages than the other CISSP books that I saw. At any rate, I read the book and found it a FANTASTIC resource. It was very well written and easy to follow. Many compliments go out to the author. I did purchase other books to include the popular Shon Harris 'CISSP All-in-One'. I mostly used those books as reference books in addition to their practice questions. I was able to take the test and pass it very confidently on the first try. You have to know that I'm not a great test taker - much more hands on abilities. ;-) Again, if you are studying for the CISSP exam, I highly recommend that you pick up this book! This is my true and honest opinion of this book as I am not biased in any way. Good luck with your exam. Zhacary Smith CISSP, MCSE/MCSA, CCNA, MCT, Security+, Network+, A+.

Everyone knows that the CISSP exam is not for dummies, but don't let the title of this book put you off. It was great as a review/final cram before I took the exam. I think it would make an excellent first read, too. I studied using The CISSP Prep Guide and an online study group and then bought this book on the recommendation of someone in my study group. There is a chapter for each of the ten domains. There are no frills here, but the coverage is accurate, balanced, and matched pretty closely what I found on the exam. I particularly appreciated the study tools on the CD-ROM. The flash cards were pure genius. I was able to download them to my Palm, and I quizzed myself in the car all the way to the testing location. I definitely got my money's worth out of this book and highly recommend it to others sitting or considering sitting for the CISSP exam.

I read the sample ebook on my Android, and will buy this ebook, unfortunately B&N's price is much higher than Amazons and since B&N did not respond to my price match request I will be purchasing from Amazon as I think this book will be a good purchase for my studies for CISSP.
