What are the best books for CISSP? Besides Sybex and Eleventh Hour which I already have, what are some other good recommendations of books for CISSP?

    The CISSP All-in-One exam guide (originally by Shon Harris) had just about everything I needed for the exam.  The book goes WAY into depth in all the domains.  In my opinion covers more than what you need, but is good for reference.  I used that and the ones you mentioned, other than practice exams.

    From what I've seen around the community, the two books you already have and the AIO guide @PCTechLinc mentioned are generally the top three recommendations. If you're ever looking for video content to go along with your book studies, I'd encourage you to check out Infosec Skills! We've got a ton of CISSP content, along with a practice exam for you to work through. We're currently running a 30-day free trial if you're interested in giving it a try!

    The Sybex is pretty much all you need. The 11th hour is meant more for someone with the requisite yrs of experience that need to brush up on topics they may already know but haven't worked with in a while.

    Just search it on Amaz0n. The Sybex study guide can be bought in a bundle with 1000 extra practice questions. Those were closest to the actual exam in terms of how questions are asked so you don't get caught off guard when you take the actual exam. There are CCCure practice questions out there but they seemed more appropriate for a Sec+ exam.

    The Sybex book has some questions.
    CCCure has been updated for the new CISSP
    You may want to try Boson.
