Take a practice test, then drill down with domain tests, and then take another practice test. As far as CISSP test prep, this book is one of the cheapest ones available. It's worth it even if you don't use the online tests (I didn't). Big thumbs up to the earlier reviewers who mentioned that the practice questions are unique and not in the Sybex book.
Don't get me wrong, the information is helpful, but it is very easy to miss the forest for the trees. There were a week when I was focused on memorizing every NIST standard mentioned in this book because they would ask for the first step, last step, etc. Watching the CISSP videos at Cybrary by Kelly Handerhan helped to get me back on the right track.
Overall, maybe two questions from this book were similar to what is one the real thing. Understanding the concepts at a high level and being able to think like a manager a far more important than memorizing every technical detail in this book. I found the Eric Conrad book and the Cybrary videos to be far better study guides. For practice exams, questions from the CISSP Pocket Prep app are more relevant.
*NOTE.. ISC2 has recently announced they're moving change to CAT for the CISSP. They claim the content should be the same but the format, obviously, changes. The CISSP used to be an endurance test and this book trained for that with the two full length tests. Not sure what/how/etc. the change impacts the usefulness of this book.
I used this book as a companion to the main Sybex study guide, and it helped me greatly in brushing up on what I missed or didn't pick up on and helped solidify what I tried to amass while reading that monster of a book.
I would point out though that the exam is still pretty hard, and this book will only give you the core knowledge to pass. You still need to be a good test taker to pass the CISSP. But know these books cold!
Please note, I used many other books and resources like CCCure/Transender quizes.

For those interested on how much I covered, I did every question in the book twice over the course of about 4 weeks before the exam. One run through taking a couple of hours a day over two-three weeks, then doing it all again in a week before the exam. These made up the majority of my exam prep questions.
