I should start by saying that I purchased this book on my NOOK and have been alternating between reading on that and on my iPad NOOK app. I don't know if that makes a difference, as I have not picked up the actual book. My biggest complaint about this book is the editing. Whoever proof read it did a very poor job. Why is that important? Because it's distracting. The CISSP is a lot of information to take in and the task is even more daunting when you're not someone who is well versed in computers/technology. So to continue to be thrown off by poor syntax and/or grammar when you're trying to grasp concepts is frustrating, because now you have to try and decipher what the authors were trying to explain, then go back and reestablish your train of thought. Don't get me wrong, I've found the book helpful as far as the information it provides (although, I do plan to supplement it with other texts to get a clearer understanding of the material) and I've, thus far, found it easy enough to read through the chapters in an order that I feel makes the CISSP easier to digest and comprehend (instead of just reading cover-to-cover). One other thing I might suggest to the authors is that if you're going to use acronyms, introduce ALL of them with the word/words you intend to use them in place of before you start using them as a constant (Example: "The operating system (OS) is designed..."). And this should be done for each new chapter in which a term appears, so as to better facilitate the understanding of those readers (like me) who choose to navigate the material "out of order," (i.e. not chapter order). I do recommend the book. As I've stated, the information is good. Just know that if you're a reader and not very technically inclined, it's a little frustrating. Not impossible to grasp. Just frustrating.
