Historically, the old books have worked just fine when the exam version changes.  The exam is a test of your experience and critical thinking skills, not a test of your ability to memorize a book.   

 

(ISC)² does maintain a list of suggested references.  To save @rslade the effort of replying I will also mention that Ross Anderson's Slade's Security Engineering is also an extremely good reference, for which the prior version is available as a free PDF.

Um, on the Internet.  Is this a trick question?  If you need a hint, read the link in my original reply.

I bought the third edition.  I have not read it all.

I am having trouble reading this as a book.  I feel like each sentence I need to stop and make a flash card.

That should have said I bought 3rd edition "Security Engineering" by Ross Anderson ISBN 978-1-119-64278-7. Hard cover book.
