Format: Hardcover
12 colleagues and I were doing the CISSP simulataneously. Between us 4 different books were ordered. I tried them all, and the difference between this one and the rest is indescribable. On numerous occassions someone would walk in pulling their out having tried to understand a topic in their book. "Can I please see your Shon Harris?" would inevitably come my way, followed by "oh right. Now I see." The CISSP subject matter is vast and it takes an amazing person to provide sufficient, well structured, well summarised, background information about a subject before delving into the security content relating to it -and then describing that in such a logical and easily understandable way. Thank you Shon. I wish you'd write more stuff.

I've just passed my CISSP exam and this book was the main source of my study. I read it twice in a period of two months, and you'll need to as there is so much information to take in. Shon Harris' style is informative with diagrams and even a touch of humor to keep your interest in some of the more heavy going areas. This differs from the official guide which is an enormous block of text. The text in the All-in-One Exam Guide is well laid out and easy on the eyes which is great on those inevitable late evenings revising. Take note of the tips and make sure you load the free CD as it is well worth the exam practice. Good Luck for your exam.

I passed the CISSP exam recently and this book was my principal source of information. Of the 10 domains in the exam, there were a few that I had no experience in, and this book filled the gaps well. It is quite readable (although some of her attempts at humour fall rather flat) and much more comprehensive that the other book I read. The tests at the end of each chapter and on the CD are useful too.
The web references can be useful although some of them are out of date. I found that they were not really necessary, though - this book covered almost everything in the exam.

Through out my career in Information and Security I have done fair number of professional exams and certifications. However I have never found such consistent detailed and concise coverage of topics across the vast area of knowledge that is CISSP as is done in this book. Shon this is a job well done.

Format: Hardcover
Look, everyone says that this is the best book in the world. It's not. It quite comprehensive, but that is partly at the cost of Shon repeating herself over and over again. Some people find that to be a useful learning technique. I don't. It did my head in. I needed to pass CISSP in a week, and I did with "CISSP for Dummies" which is a much easier read that doesn't cause you to want to go to the fridge for a beer, go to the coffee machine or just go outside and shoot yourself every five minutes.

Note that Shon Harris in with all this does not quite hit the nail on the head. You would imagine from this book that the correct answer to any question is always the paranoid one, and that you simply have to learn it all by rote. That's not quite true. Refreshingly, when you get into the ISC2 exam room, you find that the questions are actually written intelligently and that if you actually understand the material, you can fill in the gaps with your brain. Be sure that you understand the material, rather than just mind-numbingly remembering this one book. Breadth is good.

You DO need this book - or one of the later editions. But only use it for reference, in conjunction with the included trial exams. Do your basic learning with something readable.
