Using Sybex 7th Edition vs 8th Edition for CISSP

RinzlerRinzler Member Posts: 34 ■■■□□□□□□□
Hello CISSP folks,

I've been studying CISSP using the Sybex 7th Edition earlier this year but of course the Sybex 8th Edition (latest edition) it out. I'm on Chapter 8 of the 7th Edition.

Should I stick with 7th Edition or start over using the 8th Edition? icon_study.gificon_study.gificon_study.gif

    Absolutely pointless to go to the 8th edition if you've got the 7th.

    Stick to the 7th and you'll lose nothing

    7th is just fine. ;) If you have the experience and knowledge, the book is just a reference that you should supplement with something else anyway. Stay up to date with new tech.

    I compared the 7th and 8th editions; nothing major except for that 8th edition aligns with the new CISSP 8 Domains.

    Am currently using 8th edition for my ISSAP preps and its quite handy esp where the ISSAP Official guide 2nd edition has so many errors and quite shallow as well.

    All the best in your preps!!!

    There is not much differences between them, you are fine with 7th ed. Good luck with your exam.
