Editorial Reviews

Review

... ideal not only for information security professionals attempting to achieve CISSP certification but also for those who are trying to decide which, if any, certification to pursue. Executives and organizational managers who want a more complete understanding of all the elements that are required in effectively protecting their enterprise will also find this guide extremely useful.
—Tony Baratta, CISSP-ISSAP, ISSMP, SSCP, Director of Professional Programs, (ISC)2

I passed the CISSP Exam with only this book.
Fozzy
I think ISC2 has done a wonderful job with this book and its questions (exam like but I did not find any on the actual exam) so that you may see where you stand.
EU
Each chapter (domain) in this book is written by a different author with very different styles.

Many people have commented that the Second Edition of the Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CISSP CBK was a big improvement over the first edition. I have to wonder how bad the first edition must have been?

Before getting into the details of my concerns, let's look at the layout of this hardbound, 968 page "brick".

The book is organized in a 1:1 correspondence with the 10 Domains of the CISSP CBK (i.e. one chapter per domain). This organization is nice as compared with the All-In-One CISSP 4th Edition, which has something like 12 chapters to cover the 10 domains (which can make it hard to cross reference concepts).

Each domain is written by a different author (or authors) who are CISSP's and experts in the field covered by the domain. In concept this is a good idea, and in a few places it was clear that the authors tried to impart some real-world knowledge and experience (such as the BCP/DRP chapter). However, it also leads to contrasting writing styles and some issues with "continuity".

As one might expect, many domains have concepts that overlap. On occasion, the text of the book will call attention to areas that relate or overlap with other domains, but this is inconsistent and sometimes results in the reader having some questions in their mind about the 'big picture' of the concepts. Given the CISSP is primarily a managerial level certification, understanding the big picture is critically important.

In general, the content seemed relevant, though the organization left something to be desired (more on that later). However, I was a bit surprised to see quite a bit of disparate information in this book when compared with the official (ISC)2 Review Seminar course material. There were at least a few topics covered in one, but not the other.

As opposed to the rather popular Shon Harris title, the 'AIO CISSP Study Guide', this title provides a more serious and professional presentation of the requisite exam material. It can be heavy going at times, and may require the occasional re-read to ensure that information is sinking in, but then again the subject matter is heavy, and is not to be taken lightly. Not only will this text provide you all you need to know to pass the examination, it will remain as a vital ongoing reference for those professionals who are at the front lines of the Information Security profession.

Let me say that I bought the Shon Harris AIO book and could not get through it - too many stories and jokes that I found distracting. In a nutshell the AIO guide is too wordy and bored me highly (although when she gets to the CISSP material it is good as she knows her stuff). With that said I bought this book and boy was I glad I did! Finished the book a week before the exam and spent the last week taking the practice exam included (about 1 hour a day). I really enjoyed the book as it is written by several professionals that specialize in a domain (this changes the pace and ensures you learn from specialists vs a jack of all trades). Now I have taken certification exams before and have found the official books are the best ones to use (this one did not disappoint). Now on to the exam. The exam was the most difficult exam I have ever taken - really the CISSP is no joke. I felt the book (only study material I used) got me assimilated to terminology and theory and my experience made the difference in the exam for me. Since you are supposed to have 5 years experience in the field to take this exam anyways, this book should get you through the theory and your experience should get you through the rest of the test. I think ISC2 has done a wonderful job with this book and its questions (exam like but I did not find any on the actual exam) so that you may see where you stand. I am proof that you can pass with just this book and don't need to waste time with multiple sources of material if you have h security experience required to take the exam. For those without experience, I suggest the SSCP ISC2 credential instead - the CISSP requires an endorsement of your experience anyways (and potential audit) so it may be a waste of your time and money if you don't have the required experience.Read more ›

After being in computer science and information technology for years, rarely do I come across a book so noteworthy of being organized, easy to read and while maintaining its potency through efficient delivery. If you are studying for the exam this is the book to have (of course re-reads are necessary), if not I still recommend to anyone(CIO, CFO, CEO, Manager, etc) responsible for, concerned with, or reliant on information and the technology that supports it

Hello,

I recently sat the exam and passed after reviewing both the Shon Harris AIO and the Offical ISC2 Guide to the CISSP CBK v2. Either book is a great purchase, and I'm still using the books after passing the exam as a reference. This book to me is a lot better written then the previous versions.

Like many others, I read the very popular Shon Harris All-in-one exam preparation first and switched to the Official Guide to the CISSP late in the game. I wish I had picked-up this book first because it presented the material in a very direct and logical manner. The highlights and example questions were similar to those offered on the exam, which was very helpful when preparing for the actual test. The 10 chapter format made it very easy to cross-reference material and navigate through the 10 domains. The book did not waste a lot of time with commentary and unrelated stories that added little to the subject, and I appreciate that as I only had a limited amount of time to study. I spent approximately 5 - 8 hours on each chapter, and supplemented the content in this book with the video mentor, this was especially helpful for encryption and Law, Investigation, and Ethics. The book is an easy read if you have sufficient background knowledge in Information Security and at least a few of the 10 domains.
