I took a 2 week CISSP review course and they referenced the official ISC2 4th Edition and the Shon Harris all in one 7th Edition. They did say many of the questions on the real exam are similar to Sybex. What I saw this past Friday was not even close to the practice questions. I have been an excellent test taker all my life and the first time I didn't pass an exam.
I have a Master Degree in IT, CompTIA Security + CE Certified and certifications in Software Development Security and Technical Project Management with over 10 plus years in IT Management. If you are considering buying this book for the CISSP exam, it is not enough to pass the exam, even if you get 90% or better on all practice exams. The recommended books are the ISC2 Fourth Edition and Shon Harris 7th All in One, Eric Conrad, 3rd Edition and the old Shon Harris videos, and the recent Sharon Green Videos. We had a 50% pass rate in our review class, which was not good at all because many used the Sybex book as opposed to the official guide which the instructors used--that is the ISC2 Official Guide 4th Edition. Sybex is a good book maybe as a reference once you are CISSP certified as a reference but it does not prepare you for the exam, despite the claims of 90% or better on all practice exams you are ready to test. Simply not a true statement.
If you are serious about the CISSP, this book is NOT enough to pass the exam. That being said, the Sybex interactive test bank is good to learn the concepts at the surface. But you need to know below the surface to understand the real exam and what is being asked. This is a management exam, not an exam how many bits are there in an MD5 Hashing Algorithm. The questions on the real exam are very conceptual where others are obvious. The Sybex 7th edition and 8th edition are good as a supplemental source but not the primary source.
Which brings me to the second role of the book. This stays near to hand at my desk as a top rate reference book for the IS security space as a whole. Important details are easy to find thanks to the organization of the topics for ease of study. I can rapidly locate that formula for annualized loss expectancy or which law covers personal financial disclosure.
I really like getting a 2-fer for my money and this book is money well spent.
Update: Using this book as a reference along with Mike's CISSP Practice Tests, I successfully passed my CISSP exam in the new, adaptive format. I felt very prepared for the exam and completed it in 2 hours. I highly recommend Mike's tools for preparing. In fact, I'm using his CCSP books to prepare for that exam. The CISSP prep enabled me to score a perfect mark on the initial assessment test for CCSP and I have been consistently scoring in the 90% range on practice tests. Now I just have to find an open slot in the Prometrics center's schedule...
UPDATE: Based on the fact that I passed and this book was my primary study resource I raised it back up one star. I do think this book is a good resource for information to reference back to.
