    Comments about oreilly CISSP: Certified Information Systems Security Professional Study Guide, 5th Edition:

    Well, it's a bit late, maybe, as I bought this book more than a year ago when I was preparing the CISSP exam...
    I think it was a well done complement to the official CBK, with a different and often more concrete approach for certain parts.
    Probably I owe this book my success at the exam ;)
