CISSP Preparation Material

Hi All,

 

  I am currently planning on a CISSP exam. However, I am getting loss on which material should I get. May I have your kindly advise on that. 

  Is that CBK is the latest materials for preparing CISSP and which additional should I get as well? I read some bad reviews on Amazon and not sure if it is an appropriate material for further preparation

 

Thanks 

Regards

Elroy

Re: CISSP Preparation Material

While there are other threads in the community which already address preparation material, I will be curious to know if the CBK will have an update because of the recently announced domain refresh, however.

 

In my opinion, the CBK is required reading.  I enjoyed Chapple's 8E Official Study Guide better.  Both benefitted me, as did the flash cards.

Step one: learn to search.

Step two: read "Security Engineering," by Ross Anderson.

Re: CISSP Preparation Material

Thanks to your reply, I am just now reading your February 2019 thread.  I took the test a month later, not knowing I was permitted to be in the Community until I'd passed the exam!  I'm enjoying your sample questions and your explanations.

I'm definitely glad I'm not taking the test today.  I blew the ITSEC vs TCSEC answer... and others, too.
