"Detailed coverage...but has lot of filler material" - by Anonymous on 07-JUN-2011
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
I have read a couple of CISSP books by now, and this book does the a good job of detailed explanations, but at the same time the Author's kiddish comments become irritating after a while. The comments at the begining of a section of topic seem like they are written by a 3rd or 4th grader.
Author discusses lot of irrelevant and lots of filler material is instead of being 'to the point'.
Coverage is excellent though.
