    The previous version of this book was highly despised because it seemed to have both unnecessary length as well as use of vocabulary This version is of the same.I had high hopes for this book, but after finished 3 domains I m at my wits end on how just completely unnecessary the book chooses to write sentences as well as using over the top vocabulary It s just not needed Studying for the CISSP using this book is fighting a two front war You re trying to understand the material WHILE trying to decipher the damn sentences as well.This book WILL slow your studying down I wish I never spent the 60.Vocabulary example Overwrought process and bureaucracy are a pernicious drain on the viability and quality of a software project Headache example Relating data among tables in this fashion also reduces data duplication because the relation allows for each of the data elements represented in tables throughout the schema to be associated and meaningfully referenced with other data without necessarily having to duplicate the data to make these connections Stay away.

    I already have the Stewart Chapple Gibson s Sybex book and All in One Bought this ebook thinking it will provide something awesome, but it s disappointing as I expected It s just ok as an additional reference book I really don t understand ISC2 s goal purpose for coming out with a book with such limited content that that isn t up to par with the other Sybex and other books on CISSP It s almost pathetic.

    This book is organized based on the CISSP Exam Outline and addresses it good enough it provides a handy way for the CISSP aspirants to follow the exam outline It gives definitions officially and provides trending materials However, I would say it s a supplement to the previous edition, the fourth edition Some topics are highly simplified or cut off.It seems that some materials are typos or misplacements e.g., the official risk definition from ISC2 I d replace the likelihood with magnitude and the FIGURE 3.4 Brewer Nash security model on page 236 I believe it should be the Clark Wilson model.This book is good but still not good enough, but I would suggest CISSPs and CISSP aspirants put one on your bookshelf, as it stands for the official viewpoint of the CISSP CBK Common Body of Knowledge , and the only official source available.The following is my evaluation for your reference PROS Well organized Matching the CISSP exam outline to the first level of topics in each domain Trending materials Smaller in sizeCONS No review questions No appendix for supplement materials or document templates No glossary No suggested references

    The entire book looks like it was printed on a printer set in greyscale I would have paid for the darker print instead of this economy print crap The second edition had some really good questions at the end of each section with explanations This edition does not It does however have tabbed in slightly darker greyscale pages so it is easier to go the domain you want.

    This edition follows its predecessors for style and format It s necessary for instructors to own this book than it s helpful for new CISSP candidates to use for study This Official Guide makes our instructional content justifiable paints the line on the court Based on student feedback over the years, it will take 6 months or from the date of its release for new topics to show up on the exam Long gone topics like the Orange Book are no longer in the index, which is good There is better coverage of SDN and SOA in this version There are no questions answers, unfortunately Overall, the new content is appropriate for CISSP for the next few years.
