It's not possible to buy a single book, read it, and pass the CISSP exam. However if you are looking for an easy to read over view of each of the subject areas of the common book of knowledge then this is a good option. Written in the style of a travel guide, this book has chapters for each subject area with revision summary and questions at the end. The Ebook version has some formatting errors but nothing which detracts from the overall value of this. If you are considering taking the exam based on book learning, then this isn't the right source, however if you have the background experience and are looking for a revision guide, or if you are taking a boot camp and looking for additional explanatory notes for evening consumption, then this is a good choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Readable, Disgestible 12 Jan 2003
By Stephen Lee - Published on
The CISSP strikes terror for some, since it is not an easy exam to prepare for. I picked up this book because of its portability (I travel so I need something light to carry around), not expecting anything substantial to be inside, only pointers to help me remember some of the material I have already covered. Instead, I found this book to be a gem, a book full of concise material written in style that is uncluttered, presented in a format that is structured. Plus, the book offers online questions for practice. Besides the occasional typo or two, the only fault I can criticize about the book is its Q&A section--it seemed a little too simple for a professional exam.
Overall, I would recommend this book as a good first book to use, to quickly gain as much grasp of the security concepts in as little time as possible, and then slowly graduate to the more substantial offerings from QUE or Wiley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book to accompany the Official Guide 9 Mar 2006
By Jimbo - Published on
I've read several reviews on this book that say it lacks the necessary depth; and I think they are a bit unfair. The objective of this book is simply to provide the least amount of information necessary to pass the exam. Conversely, many of the "larger" books contain information to teach the reader the subject, which may seem unnecessary to many who already know their subject matter. If you were to condense many of these books, you would end up with something resembling this one.

Many other books encourage the reader to memorize unnecessary information, such as vendor specific data, history or countless examples that aren't really relevant to the exam. In memorizing this unnecessary matter, it is possible to overlook more important items. Basically, more information is not necessarily better information. This is the objective of this book.

That being said, it would be extremely risky to rely solely on this book. This is because it contains the "least" information required, written some time ago, in an ever changing industry and exam.

I passed the exam recently using this book and the Official Guide. At first I started using the Shon Harris All-In-One, but found her very irritating and long-winded, so I dropped it (literally and physically). Interestingly she is the co-author for this book, and some would consider this a very condensed version of the All-In-One Book.

A lesser advantage of this book is that you can carry it and read it on trains, work etc. which I found very difficult to do with the bigger 1000 pager hardcover books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty solid review material 23 Sep 2003
By Keith Tokash - Published on
/* Disclaimer
The CISSP is a *very* tough exam to write a review book for. It is quite correctly described as "a mile wide and an inch deep". Therefore do NOT expect this book to cover everything that you will encounter on the exam, and certainly don't get angry when you take the test and there are things not covered in this book.
So the material .... I found the chapters to be well laid out and direct. There was a lot of information crammed into a very small book, which made it ideal for me as a "last week" review. I took notes on every chapter and picked up quite a few little nuggets of information that I hadn't seen anywhere else. Of course this was my only "exam" book. Everything else I used to prepare was actually a book on a given subject (ie Incident Response, Network Intrusion Detection, etc.) so I can't really say how it stacks up against other prep books.
So overall it's definitely worth the money since it's cheaper than most tomes, but I regret not using a second "exam" review. That is not a reflection of this book, but of the massive amount of material on the exam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great overall guide for any level 18 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I passed the exam last month using this is my primary reference. This book is well organized and touches on all the material, and should work well for any experience level. Of course you'll want to use at least one other guide (Advanced CISSP prep guide would be a good complement) and take plenty of practice exams, but I would highly recommend having passport in your library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book 7 Jun 2003
A Kid's Review - Published on
Dear all,
This book is well organized. It is summary of All-in-One Exam Guide by Shon Harris. Most of the mistakes in All-in-One book by Harris are corrected in this book. The weakness of this book is the practice exam as they are very easy. It is a good book, even after you pass the exam, you can use it as a reference for future requirements. If you have to choose between this book and All-In-One, to my opinion The Passport is a better buy.
I would recommend having Passport, but do not be depend on this book to pass the exam.
