Format: Hardcover
This book is well laid-out according to the CBK Knowledge Domains. The way it is laid out reinforces your knowledge of the preceeding chapters, and is organized in such a way that you build up the necessary background of the previous domains before you get into more complex chapters. For example, access control is covered before security architecture, by the time you are at architecture, you already have a good understanding of the basic access control models being used.

Shon Harris presents the material in a very clear and concise manner. For many CBK domains, due to the depth of knowledge required and the amount of material, normally this would get tedious very quickly and hard to absorb. However, Shon presents this information in a way that is engaging and not dry and boring. She uses humor at certain points, and makes light reading of abstract and difficult topics to understand. Not only does she write in a very smooth and easy to understand manner, she covers essential content - i.e. - she doesn't write "fluff". She also has a very amazing style of writing in that she manages to bring back topics constantly throughout the chapter that you covered earlier, and makes it relevant to what you are reading now - by referring to previous concepts. Sometimes you've covered a topic and then by the time you start thinking out logical questions, Shon Harris answers them and ties everything together smoothly and seamlessly.

I would highly recommend this book. I think that it is the style of writing and clarity which makes it so useful and valuable compared to other books which just seem to "assemble" bits of information from various sources and clump it all together. When you read Shon's book, you actually come away understanding the chapter and domain.

I used this book to study for the CISSP exam. Passed without any problems 1st try. I found this book to be very in depth and it covered all relevant CISSP domains giving me more than enough information to pass the exam. It comes with CD, containing sample exam questions. I did not use any other online of offline resource except this book and CD. Also, prep questions on CD were very close to exam. While I don't mean they were word for word, but the feel and style of questions were like the exam. So I felt very comfortable going in. Author has a good writing style and makes content as interesting as can be. Of course some chapters are dry, but that is unavoidable. Overall good book. If I were to re-write CISSP again, I would buy from this author again.

Studying for the CISSP exam? Then you've likely already heard of this book. It is thick. Lots of information in there. I found much of it too technical to take in and study, but if you're going for the CISSP, I do recommend at least browsing though it. There are some easier books to wade through, notably the one edited by Harold Tipton.
