I'm preparing for the CISSP, so I do have a few different books lying around (CISSP Examination Textbooks by S Vallabhaneni = Awful reading, but good factual references; CISSP Prep Guide: Gold Edition by Krutz & Vines = Good reading, Great questions and decent references) and this book.
After having done a few 'domains' with the Krutz/Vines book I switched to this guide (available on O'Reilly's Safari site). I like the style of the chapters, the way the domains are covered, the topics are well explained, yet it is lacking on factual details. One strong point is the author's use of sample case situation to emphasis the review points.
Over the past week, this book has become my first approach to each domain, using the Krutz/Vines as a very quick checkup before trying the questions from the CISSP Prep Guide.
According to me, the preperation for the CISSP cannot be based solely on a single book. So I do recommend using this CISSP Training Guide as the center stage for training. As the title says it's a Guide, and will put down the right foundations for each domain. Then you could pick information in other books that have more details. I would also highly recommend to anyone preparing for the CISSP, to take the time to supplemented the knowledge by doing searches on the internet for supporting documentation, which Roberta Bragg gives as URL pointers at the end of each chapter.

I was skeptical after seeing that last review, but after reading much of the book, I'm not sure what that last reviewer is talking about. If you're new to security CISSP isn't for you -- try Security+ -- nor is this book. If you're in over your head, don't blame the book.

This is an awful book.
It is vague where details are important, unclear and poorly written where conciseness and clarity are needed, and it presents misleading or even incorrect information in areas in which the author is clearly not knowledgeable. In places it makes sweeping generalizations with very little if any validity; on the basis of my own twenty years in the IT industry, I suspect it contains broad swathes of personal opinion not identified as such.
The practice quizzes are full of the kind of multiple choice question in which two or three of the possible answers could be correct; the overall tone of the text reminds me of the sort of technical book in which the author uses the biggest words at his/her command, in the vaguest possible way, in an attempt to stun the reader into being impressed by the author's ability to say nothing about everything.
Although I have unfortunately come to expect this kind of product from Que and its ilk, I feel cheated out of the $70 I spent on this book, and I mourn for the unnecessarily large number of trees that died to produce it. Worse yet, my faith in the value of CISSP certification, and to some extent the general reputation of security consultants, is shaken. Please, go buy some other book.
