  • "SockPuppet" writes: Look at this quiz on for a really excellent online exam.
  • Site expert Kevin Beaver writes: Roberta Bragg's CISSP training guide is my favorite ... see it at Amazon.
  • Site contributor Ed Tittel writes: As the author of a book on CISSP and somebody who's been watching that certification for years, I also agree with the recommendation of Clement DuPuis's outstanding CISSP prep Web site -- -- the online study group for the CISSP exam. His book recommendations are spot on (he teaches CISSP boot camps and covers this entire curriculum at least half-a-dozen times a year).

    Interested and voracious readers might also find my two-part article at, "The computer security bookshelf," also of interest in digging deeply into the background materials for this exam: Click for Part 1 or Part 2.
