First, I read the Shon Harris book cover to cover all 1200 pages. That book is like drinking from a fire hose and honestly if all the conversational embellishments were taken out, that book would easily shrink to 800 pages. Anyway, if this is your first foray into CISSP read the Shon Harris book or equivalent because there are fundamentals you'll need to know. Now, after you've that book, done the test prep and think you're confident, read this book, take notes in a notebook like it's High School all over again, and summarize what you're reading in this book. This book was outrageous and boiled everything down to the necessity. With a content up for some of the newer CISSP info it could balloon to 300 pages and still remain as accurate and relevant as ever just while covering more bases. Lastly, once you are done reading and writing notes on this book. Pick up the ISC2 test prep question book. Do the questions! What I found primarily was that I needed to slow down, read the question further, and look for the BEST answer. On this exam our own experience in the real world work against us because in some cases we actually do know better. Those were my 3 steps to success, 1) Read the Shon Harris Book. 2) Read this one, write notes and absorb every single word because this book is pure gold. 3) Use the exam prep books like the ISC2 one. Huge piece of advice: It is NOT enough to know why "B" is the correct answer. You need to know why, "A, C,and D" are wrong. Once you start going through the answers in that manner you figure out the thought patterns of these test makers and you know enough now to beat them at their own game.
This book, however, is still useful as a review/memory booster. When I did my last minute review questions before the exam, I had this book and Conrad's CISSP Study Guide 3rd edition within reach. Most chapters are short enough to read more than once. The only thing I would add to this book would be a full length practice test.
