To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The content is wonderfully accurate and the information is sufficient to pass the SSCP exam. It has a lot of tips and the questions and answers at the end of each chapter are great. It really is an All-in-One. The quality of the softcover book I received wasn't very good though. The pages are very thin so you actually can see and read the page behind it. When I try to use a highlighter it just goes through and highlights the back too so it is quite annoying. I just wish they had invested more on the quality of the book to match the great content. As it is, after passing the SSCP exam this book will go straight to the bin.
I recently passed the SSCP exam using this book and online practice exams and online videos. Take the online exams over and over - don't worry too much about scoring 90% on the practice exams. Use this book to reference what you missed and then take a quiz with only the questions you missed. Spend 6 weeks doing this and you will pass. The Official SSCP practice exams are the best and most challenging. Kaplan exams would be second and the questions in this book are third as far as preparation goes. They are all valuable because they help you look at the questions in different ways, more than one voice. Once you begin to understand concepts and have a grasp of the technical details you will be fine. Good luck.
This was my first all in one book. After testing with Sybex in the past and coming up short on the exam. ......This book covered much more then needed to pass the SSCP exam today!. I didnt read the entire book( only until chapter 9). That was more then enough to pass my exam today. great book!!!!
This is the one book you need to read for SSCP certification. Reading enabled me to pass on the first attempt. I also watched PluralSight's SSCP course, but in hindsight it may not have been necessary. What's more advisable is taking the Kaplan practice exam that comes with the PluralSight course. Kaplan really provides an experience as close to taking the exam as one could get without actually having taken questions directly from it.
