That sucks. I wish I could have stacked them.

 

How does it work for (ISC)2 to be my endorser? It sounds like trying to get a college recommendation from the college that you are applying to.


I think some people didn't like the seemingly exclusive nature of needing to know an existing credential holder to be accepted into the organisation so ISC2 started offering this option, and of course the previous practice would have kept the membership numbers down too - more members equals more annual maintenance fees!

 

It's the job of the endorser to attest to the endorsee's experience, so if you do ask ISC2 to do this for you they ask for documented evidence of your experience and contact details to verify it's all legitimate.

Isn't the book super old and outdated? My rule of thumb is to never use a book more than 2 years old. Even that might be too much.

You'll likely need to use a number of resources to study for the CISSP exam, and this is considered one of the best -  the fundamentals it teaches haven't really changed.

Hmmmm, that's not good. You need some breadth. It's amazing how much is
applicable to security ...

That's the first edition. Second was 2008. But the basics don't change much,
anyway ...

You lose a lot of good classic literature with a principle like that. Newer isn't always better ...
