As powerful as cloud computing is for the organization, understanding its information security risks and mitigation strategies is critical.

1. Take the CCSK beforehand (and read the CCSK guide V.3 and the ENISA Risk Assessment)
2. Take the CISSP (so you are familiar with the style of questions and are grounded in understanding security, risk and legal concepts - you don't necessarily need to take the CISSP, but I do think it strongly helps to pass)
This book, as other reviews have mentioned, is poorly laid out which I don't think is the fault of the author. If you look at the CCSP exam outline issued by ISC, this book explains all the topics based on that. And if you study all these topics well, you should not encounter any surprises on the exam.
The book is highly repetitive and there are some mistakes which I noticed. However if you take what is not repetitive from each chapter and diligently study that material, this book is more than sufficient.
I also used documents from NIST500-292 Cloud Computing Reference Architecture to deepen my understanding as well as reviewed the Cloud Security Matrix that is on the Cloud Security Alliance's website.
Although I was not thrilled with the overall layout of the book, I do feel it prepares one to take the exam and be successful and don't think it as bad as other reviews make it out to be. Hope this helps!
Its not the author's fault however you would hope that missed items could be found within the book or the online course. Adam does a great job of explaining the content he prepared.
