    1.0 out of 5 stars A good book BUT.... June 2 1999
    By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
    This book is an excellent source for the CISSP exam and any one interested in computer security BUT it has problems. I gave it a one star because of the way it is poorly written. The errors in the book are too numerous to count and the formatting of the book makes it hard to read. I hope the next version some one will proof read it for grammical and content errors. In one page alone I found 6 glaring grammical errors. In several cases the graphics are so messed up they are hard to follow. I believe the part on firewalls was not even check for errors.
    Even though this book was hard to read, I still got a lot out of it.

    2.0 out of 5 stars More errors than any English book I have ever read! Oct. 25 1999
    By Gordon & Olivia - Published on Amazon.com
    I think the content is OK BUT there are numerous errors, even typos, through out the book. The editors simply hadn't done their job. Why didn't they use any spell-checker?!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference! Sept. 4 2003
    By Eric Kent - Published on Amazon.com
    Excellent reference!
    This is an excellent security reference!
    If you are looking for a pure CISSP prep book, this is not the best. But for general info sec, this is an awesome book.
