Phil Martin "Simple CISSP" Exam guide?
Any feedback on the Phil Martin "Simple CISSP" series on Amazon? The book is available in Kindle, hard copy, and AUDIBLE formats. There is also a separate question review guide as well. (also on Audible) The content of both is based on the 2015 CBK and has been updated recently (as of this October) to include the 2018 material. (The updated book is called "Essential CISSP Exam Guide" - available in Audible format as well)
I *really* like the fact that the books can be had in audible format - as it allows for listening during commuting. Phil Martin does the narration - and seems to do a decent job. While he's not a professional narrator, the issue is offset as he actually knows and understands the acronyms.
The original 2016 book has a small number of decent reviews - mostly by individuals prepping for the exam, not much from those who successfully sat it.
The updated content editions has a few harsh reviews - but this seems mainly due to the audible version - which is a challenge to navigate due to a large number of chapters.
I'm 75 days out about looking for my final resources. I'm now re-reading the Sybex 8th edition. I'm considering augmenting with this book (Martin's) as I'm a audio learner - so being able to hear the book is a huge help for me.
Thanks for any input. Note, I don't know Phil Martin and am not plugging for him - just interested in feedback on how useful/valid this resource is.
