Chapter 4 has the secret sauce for mapping equipment to the OSI model. This chapter would probably help people studying for CASP too. And, if your previous test prep experience includes reading Darril Gibson for Security+, then the CISSP Study Guide 3rd edition is for you!
Overall, this book is on-point and concise, which overcomes the problem of information overload that I found with the Shon Harris book and Official CISSP Study guide. Pay attention to the questions at the end of each chapter as they are relevant to the exam. Don't expect the exact questions you will see on the exam, but it provides the core concepts so you can pass the exam.
I took off one start because there were a few concepts missing in this book that were on the exam. Kelly Handerhan's superb videos filled in the gaps. I only found questions that referenced material I wasn't familiar with, which I have to chalk up to a test question.
I recommend this book if you have actual infosec experience and just want a good book without fluff to get you through this test. It covers everything you need from the SANS Course for a fraction of the cost.
