The 'example questions' are largely pot luck; some of these are a challenge to an experienced native language speaker and would be very difficult for an ESL student. In any event, they break one of the core principles of good multiple choice assessment, to test the student's knowledge of the topic, rather than their skill at interpreting ambiguous sentence construction. (Fortunately the actual CISSP questions, while far from perfect, are significantly better than the dross in this book).
That said, there are some good, well written chapters in this book; I particularly liked the chapters on Telco and Network Security, the legal chapter, and the last chapter on Physical Security. The chapter on Physical Security in particular was well structured, well explained and well edited; it's a shame the other chapters couldn't be brought up to the same standard.
Given the price of this book, and the 'official' nature of it (is it actually official?) it's a disappointing effort. It's verbose, fragmented, poorly edited, and most of all dated. There's a lot of material in here about stuff which was trendy in the 80s and 90s, and not much of anything past that; there's no serious discussion of cloud computing for example, or mobile computing, or social media. (Hint to the authors - there's more to software security than buffer overflows. No, really.)
As a final note, while the book covers a wide range of stuff, it didn't actually cover all the material on the exam... which is something of a shortcoming given its great length.
I agree with Ben, you have to be careful when buying for the Kindle. It seems the whole book is not available for the Kindle, you have to buy one domain at the time at $9.99. Even when you look at the paper version of the book it still point you to only one domain at $9.99, like many others have said this is very misleading.
This is the first time ever that I see a book that cost more in Digital format than Paper format. ISC2 press need to revise their strategy for sure.
I spent a lot of time attempting to find all ten domains in Kindle format and I could not. It seems Telecommunication and Network Security had issues that needs to be fixed by the publisher and it is not available to buy, you can only view portion of it. I have not seen Software Security at all, I could not find it. Hopefully these two domains will be added to complete the whole set.
I have published a list of the accurate links you can use to get each of the chapters on my CCCure web site.
So far I have only read quickly through some of the chapters but it seems to be more cohesive than the last edition. One good thing this time is the fact there is only one main author instead of having dozen of them with different writing style like the old edition.
I will post a further review about the content itself once I read through multiple chapters.
Having read this cover-to-cover I must say this is by far the most complicated and mis-organized book I have ever seen. The good points about this book is if you are able to navigate the confusing headers without a proper table of content to guide you, then 90% of the testable content is there.
Some points that I think the book needs to improve upon:
1) Headings are absolutely inconsistent. The eesay/thesis format is inappropriate for this book. Some headers are bolded, others are underlined, yet others are italicized. The worst part: they're all different among different chapters. You're sure to get lost with where you are in the chapter.
2) Content is "over-emphasied". In short, this book takes absolutely simple concepts like "least privilege" and "need to know" which most other resources are able to explain in a paragraph or less (Eric Corrand does it in a paragraph, Shon Harris does it in 2, Wikipedia does it in a sentence). This book does it in 5 pages, and goes on to information rarely relevant to the concept. You're sure to cloud your understanding reading about concepts in this book.
3) Overlapping information. Each chapter in this book is its own "essay" or "thesis", written by a different "Subject matter expert", but reviewed by the Tiptons. Think of it as a binder of 10 different books stapled together...again, without a table of contents. You're sure to have fun trying to grasp the writing styles of the different authors while trying to eliminate overlapping points in your notes.
I recommend you ease your studying efforts and go for another resource.
1. The book has many typographical errors.
2. Content is sometimes poorly explained and sections from a given chapter do not maintain conceptual flow.
3. The index is poorly written. Due to an poor collection of index words, finding topics can be tedious.
While this book just may be sufficient to pass the exam, I would recommend supplementing this with the Shon Harris AIO. The Shon Harris book is sufficient on it's own. Had I purchased it first, I would not have purchased the the ISC CBK.
