HASH(0x9f5aed2c) out of 5 stars Great Study Addition May 22 2011
By David Ferguson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used the 11th Hour CISSP Guide as a companion to Eric Conrad's "CISSP Study Guide". I used it in the days leading up to the exam. It's value to me was the distallation of the salient points of the CBK. As you reaed the short and concise text, it helped me as I read topics within each domail to say "I know this topic or I don't know it well enough". So it was a good yardstick against which to measure your knowledge on the days prior to the exam.

I can't say I would use this as my only study guide as you do need a more in depth grounding in the domains, but this book certainly served its purpose on focussing my energies on the areas which I needed to hone in on prior to the exam.

By the way, I used Conrad's CISSP Study Guide (the bigger book) as ny priciple study guide for the CISSP exam and the GIAC exam and I can honestly say that text as well as the 11th hour guide were instrumental in passing both exams the first time. Compared to three other major texts (Krutz/Vines, Harris, and the official ISC2 texts), Conrad's book distills the CBK into real world, stuff-you-can-read prose. Definitely recommended as they helped me pass the first time.

I bought this book in order to prepare for 3 days prior to the exam. This book is extremely concise and to the point. It covers all domains in a very efficient manner. CISSP books are never this clear. In my opinion, you need a grasp of all CBK's in order for this book to be of any use. This is a great companion to the other book from the author. CISSP Study Guide

In short: if you have already read another book or have a good grasp of all the CBK's already, this is an excellent book for studying right down to the last moments you are in your car minutes before you take the exam.

HASH(0x9d627e7c) out of 5 stars Good for what it is... a starting point or review of key points July 9 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great accompaniment book to either start your CISSP study or end it as a way to review key points.

Using the Eleventh Hour accompaniment with the full "CISSP Study Guide" CISSP Study Guide, Second Edition by Conrad/Misenar/Feldman and also published by Syngress, clarifies that this book is meant to highlight key and more complex points rather than going into every piece of potentially relevant information.

Each chapter has "five toughest questions" taken directly from the full CISSP Study Guide's 15 questions at the end of each chapter. As some readers have noted, the eleventh hour book does not include all information specific to each question, but again, more information is included in the CISSP Study Guide and can also be easily determined with a bit of online research.

My personal game plan for CISSP study has been:
- Use this book as a starting point to get the key points of a domain. Sort of like listening to a teacher running through key points in class then saying go home read the full chapter and do the questions at the end.
- Read the correlated domain chapter in the full CISSP Study Guide to get more in-depth and do the associated 15 questions in that book.
- Look through the Shon Harris All-in-one exam book on the same domain and get more in depth on areas that haven't quite sunk in completely. The Shon Harris book is so detailed that at times the overarching points can be hard to catch, so for me it has been better used as a dictionary type of reference rather than the starting or even mid-point.
- Go through the Total Tester software from the Shon Harris All-in-one exam book guide and take the practice exam questions for the specific domain to be sure it has all sunk in and pick up any new references that I may not be familiar with yet.
- Throughout this get mileage out of the internet browser when something doesn't quite make sense. The CISSP material is so broad that no one book has seemed to cover everything. Thus, Google is my friend.

On a side note, one of the one-star reviewers state: "How can it be that the prior reviewers didn't see that the answer to one of the questions (#4) in Chapter 4 (that is is far as I read and will read) was completely off and had nothing to do with the Chapter at all."

--> As a point of reference: This question, #4 in chapter 4, "What is the recommended agent for extinguishing a kitchen grease fire?" is relevant to the CISSP Domain Physical/Environmental Security which requires knowledge of the different classes of fires and the appropriate associated suppression methods. A key question to ask when performing a data center review is, What sort of fire and smoke protection is in place? A reviewer needs to be able to understand whether the answer provided is appropriate. A kitchen grease fire falls into Fire Class "K" which requires wet chemical fire extinguishers.

HASH(0x9cffdcfc) out of 5 stars Solid last minute validation... Dec 12 2011
By B. Hubbard - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're just starting out, this isn't the book for you - go for Conrad's full study guide or the Harris book, and when you're comfortable with those then come back for this one.

But - if your CISSP exam date is just around the corner, this compact book is what you need to make sure you're ready.

This isn't designed to teach you the concepts or give you the details. It's a distilled version of all the critical concepts that you can move through quickly and make sure you understand the body of knowledge and you haven't missed any of the big pieces.

If you can get through each chapter with no surprises, and you know the answers to the "Five Toughest Questions" at the end of each chapter, you should be able to sleep well the night before you sit the exam.
