Comments about oreilly CISSP For Dummies, 4th Edition:
I completed my CISSP in August 2014 and this was my only resource. The information was clearly organised and highly relevant. I took notes from the book and placed it on flashcards which helped tremendously.
If you are already a seasoned professional that has some years under their belt then this is really the only resource you need.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
