Product Description

Review

Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CISSP Exam is an encyclopedic tome filled with a dizzying array of security information. The International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2 has designed this book to help you study and pass the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) test. … The chapters are concise digests that systematically review each CBK domain. … Excellent. Buy the study guide if you can only choose one book. If they save you the cost of retaking the CISSP exam, then it is money well spent.
- Technical Support, Dec. 2004

This book is an excellent guide to prepare [for] the CISSP exam. It is the only official study guide in the world. It provides detailed security analysis and it is totally characterized by sample questions and answers and explanations…I definitely suggest this book…

Guys,
I finally took the CISSP exam, and passed *not* using this book alone. I ordered this book 1 month before the CISSP exam, because someone recommended me to buy it and also said that it's an advantage to have it prior the exam. While this generally true, some are not.
The book was written by 3 authors, and reviewed by Hal Tipton (a very well respected and knowledgeable security professional) therefore the contents in the book is superior. And it was written by 3 authors, it also means you will experience 3 different writing styles throughout the book. The format of the whole book is consistent but tough luck, the writing style is so inconsistent.
I found some chapters are easy to digest with, and some are not (because of the 3 authors thing). The book doesn't present the CBK material in a good way for your to memorize, it acts more like a reference book. I have read All-in-One and Prep Guide Gold Edition, and those 2 books are GREAT to start with. I do like the Official (ISC)2 Guide because it covers material that the other books DON'T. Especially the Physcial Security and Operations Security domain. After reading the Physical Security domain I had a feeling like "I know how to pick a lock now ;)". This book also tells you what you need for the CISSP exam and what you don't, which is really good. It clearly states that "this information is not needed for the CISSP exam... it's being included here for your reference" and I find that's very helpful, saving me from memorizing superfluous information.
The Physcial Security domain also covers the CCTV camera, very nice materials indeed. You should expect to see some CCTV questions on the exam. If you don't really want to buy the book, you can easily search for the material on the net.

This book is a very good resource, whether you're preparing for the exam or just trying to evaluate the security in your ecommerce business. Warning!! It doesn't cover everything you might see on the CISSP exam. It does cover 80% or better and the explanations offered are particularly good. I used it in conjunction with the CISSP prep book by Vines and Krutz and supplemented both with the massive amount of information that is readily obtainable over the web. If you can't afford a boot camp this is a book you definitely want to have on your desk. Real world experience is critical, but you're not going to know all you need without tapping into the experience of others.

As a future CISSP, I found this book very incomplete and difficult to read. I was given this book in a course, however I would not buy it. I expect a 2nd edition to come out next year.
I would strongly suggest the Shon Harris book for future CISSP
