Shon Harris' CISSP All-In-One 4th Edition

As I always say, use more than one source of material when studying for any exam. One should be the official guide and the other should be from an expert who has the ability to explain things in a way that sticks in your head that maybe the official book couldn't do. Shon's book was my choice back when it was in its 2nd edition, and now the 4th is available. Wow how time flies... or I'm just getting old. I like her writing style, and this has been a crowd favorite since the first edition. If you're going for your CISSP, you won't be sorry checking this one out:

CISSP All-In-One 4th Ed by Shon Harris.

Book Description from Amazon:

Thanks Don.  This is the book I am currently reading now and think her material is easy to read as well.  She makes the topics at hand interesting and relevant.

Shon Harris' CISSP All-In-One 4th Edition and Official (Isc)2 Guide to the CISSP

You want to see Official (Isc)2 Guide to the CISSP CBK  or Shon Harris' CISSP All-In-One 4th Edition before you buy!!!!!!!!!!

Here is the site:

(Isc)2 http://www.google.com/books?id=RbihG-YALUkC&printsec=frontcover&lr=&sig=0avz6Znsnia1UlHqJ7FirwUw49w#PPP1,M1

Shon Harris'  http://www.google.com/books?id=tMmm-h0bRgIC&printsec=frontcover&lr=&sig=S0IDoA1W1uuxK2KizX6MVKSGXRM

I am reading right now Computer Security Handbook by Seymour Bosworth (Editor), Michel E. Kabay (Editor). I think this is the best book for Master level research.

Re: Shon Harris' CISSP All-In-One 4th Edition

Just finished a weekly CISSP training course through my local ISSA chapter, and their main source of information was Shon Harris' book (included in the low cost of the course).

However, more than one instructor called the Official (Isc)2 Guide to the CISSP CBK a good sleep aid!  ;D

That instructor wasn't too far off.  I had made up my mind that I was going to read that entire thing cover to cover prior to taking any classes.  Let's just say that because I was stubborn about it, and got sleepy a LOT, my goal was pushed back by about a month.

But it worked.  Passed on the first try with 2.5 hours to spare.

I'd recommend reading both...or at least hitting up the Official Guide for the domains with which you're less familiar.  And don't forget about Clement's site, www.cccure.org!  One of the best free resources available.

This book is really good but contains too many bias. The author should not use some many references to "She", "Her" and so on.

You do realize that Shon is a female?

Re: Shon Harris' CISSP All-In-One 4th Edition

willguibr: It is funny that you mentioned that, it never bothered me, but I did notice all the she/her. I realize the author is a female, but I think it is funny how much I noticed it, and I have to think the reason has to be because there is hardly any female security analysts. Heck, I can honestly say I don't know a single one personally.

I will agree this is a must have book. You can buy it so cheap off Amazon, and when I took the CISSP all I used was this book. Mostly read the whole thing, then took the test. Took me about 4 days, and I passed just fine. (yes granted I had years of experience)
