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.
Using just this book, and the free practice tests what come along with it I passed first time. The way the book is segmented is rather helpful, I would read a chapter, wait a bit the done the questions and re-read on what I got wrong before progressing onto the next chapter.
I passed my CISSP test on 2nd June. I used SYBEX official study guide and official practice tests as a main source for study. I read the official study guide cover to cover twice and did domain wise practice tests (100+ questions in official practice test book) twice as well. Once I felt ready, did the 4 full practice tests and scored 75%, 85%, 83% and 80% respectively. I also did a quick glance of Eric Conrad’s study guide and used the 11th hour book during last week in addition to Sunflower PDF notes. I passed the test right after 100 questions in 2 hours and 7 minutes. Key to success: prepare thoroughly and don’t rush during the exam, focus on accuracy versus speed. I hope this review is helpful for anyone preparing for the exam.
I am an instructor for the CISSP certification program at a Toronto University. I chose this textbook for my class, together with the companion book of official quiz questions, to prepare my students for the updated CISSP CBK. I really appreciate the updated version which includes GDPR, updated Wireless attacks, and reflects the current threat landscape. The CBK may not appear to have changed significantly for 2018, but I really appreciate that this textbook has the most up-to-date information whether you are studying to pass the CISSP or just to learn more about information security. Students find the book easy to read, and the right balance between concise and explanatory. There is 20 quiz questions for each of the 21 chapters and you get free access to additional online practice questions and bonus exams. Readers of the ebook version will appreciate having live links to click for further information.
this book is sufficient enough for the study. Of course you will need good amount of practice questions from various resources but use this book as the foundation you'll nail the exam. just to make sure you read through this book and understand every concept from it. whatever on this book will be in the exam.
