    11th Hour CISSP review

    I was a bit skeptical about the book since it's so short and compact especially when compare to other CISSP study guides, but I have to say I was presently surprised. In short, I would describe the book as compact, precise, no fluffs and covers all domain objectives well.

  • AnoopPremanandan Mon Dec 24 2018

    Comprehensive and condensed

    This book is worth as a quick reference on all domain topics. It is presented in an easy to understand manner to help your conceptual understanding of topics.
