I was disappointed that there is no CD in the Nook version AND Barnes&Noble doesn't tell you -- or at least I can't find that little tid bit of useful information. I would not have purchased this for the NOOK had I known there was no CD.

I purchased the Exam Cram CISSP Second Edition a few months ago but have only just started reading through. Although I've only gotten about 30 pages in, I'm already dismayed by some of the questionable referencing and blatant inaccuracies in some of the example information. In terms of questionable references, for instance, page 26 includes a wikipedia reference in discussing laptop theft. As virtually any college professor will say, wikipedia is an unreliable source at best. There is a reason most colleges do not allow wikipedia as a reference for term papers. As for blatant inaccuracies, page 31 references the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire but states that the event occurred in 1991. The actual Triangle Shirtwaist fire happened in 1911. While this is an editorial mistake, such mistakes in a study/reference guide don't instill confidence in the overall quality of the material. Please bear in mind that this review is based on only a few pages of the book so I cannot yet offer a complete review. That being said, I'd be wary of purchasing this one.

The first key thing to note here, is that this was one of my key resources and I passed the exam on the first try. This was an excellent book for getting familiar with the basic concepts of CISSP. Strengths of this book include excellent explanation of basic core concepts and detailed, yet simple descriptions of technical foundations. That said, it was one of several books that I read/studied and among them it was not the best at preparing me for the actual exam. Weaknesses included lots of unbroken text, structured in a way that tended to hide some of the most important key elements that were good to memorize for the test. This book was one of the resources that I actually learned the most from though (a few things I will use, beyond just the test). One challenge is that this version is quite outdated and the test has been recently revised. Many concepts on the test were not covered in this book (as such, I found several surprises on the test/all of my books were outdated). There is a more recent version presently available; however, I did not read the newer version and as such cannot comment on the revised product. If you are preparing for the CISSP exam my recommendation is to have several quality resources, at least some of which are among the most recent publications, and study them all fastidiously. It is a difficult exam that covers lots of material. This book will serve you well as one of several such resources. In conclusion, I am pleased that this book was one of my key resources in studying for the exam.

I really like this book it goes into great security and if you study hard and know computers you'll pass the test with this book.
