I was skeptical about purchasing this book. After reading a few pages, I realized the concepts were becoming clear to me through the plain and concise delivery presented by Mike and Shon. I recently attended a CBK Review Seminar, which I recommend to anyone who is attempting to achieve this certification...invaluable, I used this book along with the study materials from the review seminar. Great, easy read! 'Oh yeah, I passed the exam too!'
Just took the ISC2 course and reading this condensed version of Shon Harris's hardcover was great preparation. This is about as close as you'll get to what is required to pass the CISSP. Information is well laid-out using the defined Domains with good summary checklist and sample exam questions (but not too good ;0)
