Book Description

Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is an internationally recognized security qualification. Success in this respected exam opens the door to your dream job as a security expert as well as an eye catching salary. But passing the final exam is challenging. Every year a lot of candidates do not prepare sufficiently for the examination, and fail at the final stage. This happens when they cover everything but do not revise properly and hence lack in confidence.

This book will take you through the final weeks before the exam with a day-by-day plan covering all of the exam topics. It will help you to enter the exam room with confidence, knowing that you have done all you can to prepare for the big day.

This small and concise CISSP exam quick-revision guide provides a disciplined approach to be adopted for reviewing and revising the core concepts a month before the exam. This book provides concise explanation of important concepts in all the 10 domains of the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK). Each domain is covered in two chapters that are represented as days. Each chapter contains some practice questions.  A full-blown mock test is included for practice. This book is not a replacement to full study guides and tries to build on and reemphasize the concepts learned from such guides.
