    I would say also consider using: Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CISSP CBK.

    While I haven't received the results of the SSCP exam I took, I believe I would have felt a little bit better if I read the SSCP version of the book properly, instead of skimming it.

    Any 4-year undergrad degree will take one-year off the experience requirement for the CISSP cert.

    And anytime there is an "official guide" to a cert exam that is produced by the cert exam's vendor, you should use it to study for the exam. 'nuff said.

    Except what that official guide is the original ISC2 book... unless you are looking for an easy way to fall asleep. :) Luckily, I've heard they have corrected those mistakes in the second edition.

    When I took the CISSP exam two years ago, I figured I had over 15 years of experience, covering 7 domains, not counting the degrees and the years not related to system security. I sweated hard, and mainly depended on the Shon Harris book. That many pages is nearly impossible to absorb in less than a year, to be honest. After I plowed through the book, I started practice exams. Maybe 40-50 100-question practice tests, and I passed first time out. Your mileage may vary. The test is not impossible, but it IS comprehensive.

    I tested CISSP two years ago. My experience level was then over 20 years in 7 domains. I still sweated blood and studied the Shon Harris book. That many pages is nearly impossible to absorb in less than a year, to be honest. After plowing through it, I took probably 50 100-question practice tests. Passed it the first time. The test isn't impossible. It's better done than almost any other cert exam I have taken, but it IS comprehensive.
