Customer Reviews:

  • Pleased with content....
    I am still in the midst of reading the CISSP All-in-one guide, and so far, I am very impressed with the content, and my ease of understanding subject matter presented. This is a much easier read than the "Official ISC2 Guide to the CISSP Exam". I also purchased "CISSP for Dummies". Of the three...CISSP all-in-one has the best of both content, similar to "Official ISC2 Guide", but also, ease of read, similar to the "For dummies" book. If I had to do it all over again...and just by one text, the CISSP All in one guide would be the one I'd choose, hands down. ...more info
  • My Experience Not the same as other reviewers
    If your background is similar to mine you may be very frustrated with this book. I can imagine writing such a broad survey book is difficult, but it's in its fourth addition now! So clearly a lot of people like it -probably because it has so many pages they think it must be good.

    I am a computer professional; I worked in cryptography, computer security, software engineering, RF and network Comms. Although I have a broad background, it is not one obtained from a methodical overview which the CISSP test requires.

    The first disappointment is the Index. Once you get into taking practice tests and need to look up information quickly. I guarantee you won't find it in the index.

    It also appears that Ms. Harris' background focused on cryptographic systems. Do you really need the detailed procedures to encrypt a message using the 16th century Vigenere cipher? Just for this review, I checked the index. Guess what? Vigenere cipher is not there!

    Another frustration is the legal section. Would you not expect the Digital Millennium Copyright Act be discussed? How about the controversial Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act?? Or the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act?

    OK, then would you expect computer forensics to be covered in a few pages or more in depth? Oh and look up forensics in the index - not there. You must look up computer forensics. Geeez..

    Overall a good editor could get this book down to half its size by removing the chattiness and rambling.

    I also have experience with two other CISSP books. One by Ed Tittel called "CISSP: Certified Information Systems Security Professional Study Guide" and the other "CISSP Training Guide" by Roberta Bragg". Don't waste your time on Bragg's book due to the error rate. It comes with test software that is riddled with errors. Titel's book so seems much better but it has its problems. I'll post a review after I finish his book.

  • It's 1100 pages but it's all there....
    Plenty of other review but long story short, this book will get you to pass the test. The testing CD is excellent and a must if you purchase this book.

    She covers an incredible range of information that is quite daunting if you are not familar. I think the shear size of the book was scary which is why I recommend the Dummies book to ease into it. I think Dummies couple with this book will have a rookie ready to pass in a few months.

    The range of material of the test is huge, too big. Her book cover the needed amount to get you a P. She writes well and attempts humor in a rather dry subject.

    I do recommend using this book but use other testing engines to reveal your soft spots. ...more info
  • Must have book for CISSP
    This is one of the two books I used to study CISSP test. It covers almost everything you need to know. It might put too much stuff in some areas.

    I have different opinions regarding some questions in this book. I think the other book is a little better on this part.

    The other book I used:

  • King of the hill for Security Tome
    I have exchanged email with the author and we have had a few phone calls, but I cannot say that I know Shon Harris well. However, after reading the 4th edition of her very successful book, I feel I know her better. I love the humor in the italics at the beginning of sections and - warning - sometimes in line with the technical material. I appreciate the plain, clear, as simple as possible, way the information is presented. It would be easy to make these concepts sound hard, Shon does not do that, not ever; thank you! The charts and graphics on the main do a fantastic job of making the information clear. She does an extraordinary job of moving between well written prose and bullet points in a style reminiscent of Dorothy Denning. At three inches thick and running over 1100 pages, one certainly cannot fault her for leaving critical information out. This is on par with the Matt Bishop book of being the Information Security Tome. I can't say that I learned that much reading the book since I do security all day, every day and have done so for years, but I never got bored and I went cover to cover ( not counting the detailed index in the back and the "so you want to be a CISSP in the front) and I was astounded by the author's craft, she tells the story of security as well as anyone ever has.

    You do not need me to vouchsafe the value of this book ( and the CD) to prepare for the CISSP exam. If Shon is not the best known author, she is certainly in the top two or three in this category. But, I believe this book has another equally important role. It is perfect for the CxO that wants to understand what security is, what they need to know about it. I understand the knee jerk response to that is, "you cannot ask a CEO to read 1100 pages". Actually, the successful senior executives in the world are generally quite good at reading a LOT of information in a SHORT period of time. Shon is accurate, the writing is excellent, the diagrams help with "knowledge compression", a CFO interested in security can zip through this like a zero turn mower on a two acre MacMansion.

    Nitpicks, sigh, I wish ISC2 had settled on the standard approach to incident handling instead of creating their own broken one. The Quantum Cryptography section is actually Quantum Key Exchange, but hey! That is a nitpick, no reader of this book actually needs to know the difference. And critics will be overjoyed because Shon seems to have threat, risk, and vulnerability in the right pidgeon holes. The most serious flaw in the book is in chapter 12, Hack and Attack Methods, some of that stuff I know cold and I got a bit confused reading that section, but it is the end of the book and my guess is that folks were getting tired. A few network traces would go a long way towards bringing that section to life. And you know what? The book remains 5 stars. Even if that section was spot on, even if the thirty weak pages out of the 1070 strong pages were perfect, the book is not designed to prepare the reader to be an IPS analyst. The overall message is clear and compelling, the bad guys do evil things with packets; I get the message so will the reader, let's move on.

    The bottom line, if you think you know security and want to test your knowledge, buy the book, fire up the CD, install the test software and give yourself a run. Shon is a great author, but she has also compiled an awesome set of questions. Yes, they will prepare you for the CISSP exam, but they will also help you test your knowledge of security and your ability to think critically. If you have further questions about the book, or you disagree with my review, drop me a line and let's talk about it, info
