Product Description

From the Back Cover

Get ready to pass the CISM exam and earn your certification with this advanced test guide!

There is no better way for you to stand out from the crowd of IT professionals than to get your Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) certification from the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA). Written by the bestselling authors of the CISSP Prep Guide, this comprehensive test guide provides you with all the tools you’ll need to prepare for and pass the exam. The authors cover the key concepts for each of the five domains, focusing only on the information that ISACA has deemed appropriate for certification. At the end of each chapter, you’ll find sample questions as well as detailed answers to help you quickly learn the material. Along with these practice tests, the authors arm you with proven techniques that you can use to increase your chances of selecting the correct answers.

This book will prepare you to take the CISM exam. Covering the five CISM job practice areas, it examines the:

  • Strategy, roles, and security policies for information security governance
  • Life cycle processes, and risk identification and analysis for risk management
  • Methods to meet policy requirements for information security program management
  • Steps involved in information security management including vulnerability assessments
  • Response and recovery plans for response management

The CD-ROM contains all of the questions and answers from the book with the Wiley test engine powered by Boson software.

Format: Paperback
The product details are the first giveaway - 456 Pages?
My book finishes at page 433. Anything of substance in the book
finishes where appendix A starts at Page 259. In other words there is a lot less to the book than the stated 456 pages. The CISM is considered to be a rival to the CISSP by some, and Krutz & Vines made a decent job with the CISSP Prep Guide (Gold edition). What happened here ?
The Boson questions are woeful with numerous mistakes. I gave feedback to the publishers and was informed that "The publisher and author have acknowledged that this is an error created by the question writer hired to write the questions for the CD test" Were Mr Krutz and Vines too busy to even QA the questions, let alone write them?

It must be difficult to write an exam review book before the exam is actually offered. I purchased this book for additional reference before taking the CISM Exam over the past weekend; 6/03. This was the first time the exam has been offered to the public. I estimate that 80% of the exam questions where not covered in this book. While the material presented by the author's is valid, it did not help much in terms of the exam. This book is much more useful for someone trying to obtain the CISSP not CISM.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK / DON'T EVEN READ IT!!!! Dec 8 2007
By W. Carver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just finished my CISM exam and I hope that I can save someone else the same agony I went through. The material in this book is 100% USELESS!!!! (I'm screaming from a mountain top with no exaggeration). If you find this book lying on the sidewalk, DON'T even pick it up. I spent about 20 hours studying the material in this book and taking the pre-tests and not one bit of that effort prepared me for the exam, and I'm being nice!!! USE THE MATERIAL FROM ISACA, not this garbage! It's as if the authors have never even heard of CISM, maybe there is another CISM exam that I am not aware of?!?!?!

Signed,
Unfortunate purchaser

The CISM Prep Guide Dec 10 2007
By Daniel Covey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Please do not, under any circumstances spend money on this book. There is actually no real good study material in general for the CISM exam. This book has not been revised since 2003.

This is a horrible book for this exam. DO NOT BUY IT. Plain enough?

Outdated beyond usefulness. Aug. 2 2005
By JP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Be advised: this book may have been relevant a couple years ago, but not anymore. ISACA has updated and slightly reorganized the exam. I believe this book actually interferred with my prep. The ISACA study guides and applicable experience are plenty to pass this exam (worked for me). Good luck.

CISM Prep Guide - A Complete Failure June 20 2008
By Cert Guru - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was literally a cut and paste of the author's previous work. I just took the CISM exam, and if I had assumed this book could help me pass the test, I would have failed. This is NOT the CISSP, and the fact that they could not take the time to remove references to "studying for the CISSP", in this book tells me it was glued together, and that is being VERY kind.

DO NOT WASTE A DIME ON THIS BOOK!!!

Outdated Indeed June 14 2008
By John Abella - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'll just echo what others have said before me: in 2008 this book is so outdated that it's no longer useful for the CISM exam. Spend your money on the ISACA guides instead.
