I'm a co-founder of Hacker Pen, a leading penetration testing shop. We actually write dummy questions for this exam, as well as three others (those are the questions you answer, but don't count, and don't show up until later versions of the exam). Get ready for a GREAT pen, or IT security mgmt. career with this volume!

There are three general types of questions, which I'll call recall, application and problem solving. The vast majority are application-- and that's where this prep guide shines. There is NO QUESTION: if you master this guide, you'll pass the exam!

Please DO NOT be fooled by all the packages, flash cards, kits, toolkits, and thinner volumes competing with this volume-- this study guide is very recently up to date with the latest questions and topics (many taken from real test exit interviews as well as folks like us writing advanced questions for future exams), and in close to 1,000 pages, every topic is at least covered in enough depth to get you to the right answer. Also, the publisher's web site for the book does offer electronic flashcards, over 1,000 more questions, and three complete (250 question) exams in addition to the complete exam already found in the book! That is a LOT of prep in the REAL categories covered by the 2012 BOK.

In the multiple choice questions, there are "distractors" that are very close to the real answer, but as a programmer you probably already know about interlocking choices-- you can almost always eliminate two of the choices by just the Bool behind the others. This guide gives all the tips as well as great exercises without wasting your time on outdated topics that are no longer relevant.

I had been waiting for a 2012 edition of CISSP study materials to come out, and had been using 2011 and earlier materials. As soon as I started reading this book, I knew that this is what I should have had from the start. Don't bother with other online practice exams for $39.95 via ISC2 recommended organizations. This book is very good material for covering the topics that you should know!

I used this book as my primary study source for the CISSP. I chose this book based on my previous experience with author Darril Gibson's SQL books. I was very happy with the material and how it was presented. I passed the CISSP first try after studying from this book for about 4 weeks.

This book is current (2012) content and easy to read and interpret. Although I have my CISSP, it's an excellent CISSP study guide, I believe as good as ISC2 (certification body) but easier to read and use. A few practice test questions, but not enough to help you see weaknesses sufficiently to create a more focused study plan. I'd rate it a 5 if it had more questions. Without them, you have to buy something else. It's still a good bargain, hard copy or Kindle (which you get Kindle-PC version).

Causes my kindle reader to shut down, but other kindle books work just fine. A hundred and fifty pages in a chapter? Maybe it's the font, or perhaps the rehashing of basic information. That's why it's not easy to find specific content, and as a textbook, it's horrible. Break up some of this stuff into sections and get rid of the monotony.
