Statistics can be misleading, but last year, security professionals who earned (ISC)2 s CISSP certification reported earning an average $7,140 raise as a result. That s the second highest payback of 37 credentials studied by Certification magazine, and it reflects a first-year ROI of 7.9 to 1.

Over the past two years, CISSP has clearly emerged

Nice and detailed review of all CISSP domains.
If you have previous knowledge in a certain area and you're familiar with the concepts you can get easily bored with the elaborate examples and probably will skip them.
I liked the overall presentation style.
The only annoying thing were the 'funny' remarks at the beginning of each topic.
Holy dull reading Batman. I'm a CISSP, and this was a good book to put yourself to sleep - even for a security nut like me.

LOONNNGGGGG! But the text was worth reading prior to taking the exam, which I luckily passed on the first try!

Finally finished reading this book. I love Shon Harris.
Passed on the first attempt :)
A lot of information in this book for CISSP. Maybe became I'm a computer geek, is the reason why I read it ALL and found it all very informative (and exciting…yup proud computer geek here). Thanks to the Navy for already teaching me some of the stuff that was in this book.

Looking forward to taking this certification exam, hopefully soon. =)

Look, it did the job, right?
I passed the test, but did I really "finish" the book? Perhaps not... But am I done? Oh yes.
OK, Don't expect any reviews from me for awhile. I need to plow through this 1200 page technical manual. If I have any intriguing fiction in the house, it will only distract me from what I need to do.

Back in a couple months.....

Truly covers how to think like the test; but won't help you at all if you are looking for test prep questions to memorize for the test. Trains you to think through the sometimes 3 to 4 tiered questions!
Dave Nelson
This is probably one of the most comprehensive study guides available. While you'll want a second or thrid resource to study with, this could (and should) be one of your main study tools.
This book is packed with information. Highly recommend for anyone studying for the CISSP
The most comprehensive security book period. Even if you don't plan to study for CISSP this book worth a look. Book cover all range of topics related to security.
Ibrahim Magdy
This book includes all information any CISSP needs , it exactly what CISSP a very wide areas of knowledge just enough information about security to grasp it
Stephen Hargrove
Much of the information in this book is either out-dated or wrong. It used to be the gold standard but is now ... I'm not sure what it is.
Frederick Bingham
This is the book we used for my MIS 534 Information Security Class. It is well-written and comprehensive.

Required reading for anyone pursuing the CISSP Certification. Also a good reference after the fact.
While I despised studying for the CISSP, this is undoubtedly the best tome for the job.
