%T "The CISSP Prep Guide Gold Edition"
happened to notice, in the preparation of this review,
certain online bookstore has a special in relation to
this title. You
can buy it, along with the "Advanced CISSP Prep
Guide: Exam Q & A" for
a price slightly less than that of the two volumes together.
those who take the bookstore up on their offer: this
volume is nothing
more than "The CISSP Prep Guide" (cf.
CISSP Prep Guide: Exam Q & A" (cf.
authors have done some updating: there are, for example,
additional pages of material on wireless security. The
improved their coverage of the Common Criteria--by reprinting
explanation that is provided on the National Institute
and Technology (NIST) website.
however, the same comments appropriate to Krutz and
original books still apply, so what I said was, for those
the CISSP exam, this book does provide a guide to the
topics to be
covered. If you are confident that you know more than
the book at
every point, you should be in good shape to sit the exam:
if not, you
will have to get help somewhere else. If you are studying
security course, or are a security professional, this
work will not
have much to offer you. This volume may give you a somewhat
idea of the types of questions you may encounter, for
the CISSP exam.
As preparation for the exam, however, it will both scare
unnecessarily and fail to prepare you fully.
