what book is recommended for the ISSAP exam?
Outside of the Self-Paced courses there really seems to be no material around. Hopefully someone can point us in the right direction
Agree no material available online for ISSAP. Even the ISC2 website points to Amazon and the Official curriculum book 2nd Edition is of 2013 publication. It doesn't align with the revised domain naming.
I don't understand why ISC2 isn't validating the links to Amazon which is obsolete. If the ISC2, the provider of the exam cannot give the validated books material how are the subscribers be able to study and get certification? Its very frustrating. I kindly request the admin to do something about this. Thanks.
We keep a list current of all self-study materials on our website. The list is by certification, but CISSP-ISSAP can be found here:
I hope this helps! For questions about education material, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will relay to the education group.
Hello, thanks for responding. The link points back to the ISC2 resources for CISSP-ISSAP which is fine but then, there another link which takes me to Amazon for Official guide however the publication date is 2013 which is completely outdated and also the content in the book doesn't map with the current domain (I believe there was changes last in 2020). Kindly let us know where we can buy the Official guide which is latest and most updated.
Yes, that is the most current version of the CISSP-ISSAP CBK. When a new one is coming, we will share. You can still use that book as a reference, but I would recommend familiarizing yourself with the exam outline as your ultimate guide for how to get ready for the exam.
The latest exam outline is here - https://www.isc2.org//-/media/ISC2/Certifications/Exam-Outlines/CISSP-ISSAP-Exam-Outline-v0120.ashx - and we have a document that you can use as a guide on what updated between this version of the exam and the last - https://www.isc2.org/-/media/ISC2/Certifications/Domain-Refresh/CISSP-ISSAP-DomainRefresh.ashx
There's also flashcards you can sign up to receive that can help in exam prep - https://cloud.connect.isc2.org/issap-flashcards
