Top Customer Reviews
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?
