Explique correctement les concepts à connaître. Personnellement, j'ai jonglé entre le CBK, celui-là, quelques autres et Internet pour les révisions du CISSP.

I studied from only this book. I had a very minimal background in networking.. but substantial knowledge of programming and years of experience programming professionally. The test took me 4 hours and I did pass the first try.
How I used this book:
1. First time I read the book I did two chapters of reading per week. The first time through reading I gathered all of the high level concepts from the book. I was not reading for extreme detail because my brain could not possibly remember so much. I also avoided all practice questions. (I find that if you do questions right after reading naturally you will do well... you just read it!)
2. The second time I went through the book I took a notebook and wrote down every "Exam Essential" item from the end of each chapter onto a piece of paper along with the chapter it was from. Exam Essentials is the special section where the author has taken the time to highlight all of the things he thinks you MUST know to take the test. He wrote one for each chapter and this is where this book is awesome. If I didn't understand one of the Exam Essential items I went to that chapter and read in extreme detail about the concept and took notes so I would not have to look it up again.
3. So I had my notebook with about 30 pages of notes, (there are about 21 chapters so each chapter was a page or so) using long term memory tricks I memorized every single page of my notes. The trick I used was walking around my apartment (in my mind) and visually associating things with the test. (Each step of my staircase became a layer in the OSI model and I envisioned the technology for that layer sitting on the step as an example. Memory professionals who memorize decks of cards use association all the time. Please take some time on Google and learn how to do this kind of memory work. It will benefit you greatly in school and life in general if you learn to do this.) The author already told me what I had to know.. so I made sure I memorized it.
4. During the last phase I simply did all the practice questions the author provided both in the book and on their website. If I didn't know something I made a note. At the end of all the thousands of test questions I had another 2 or 3 pages of notes to add to my memory. On another note I did one practice exam a day to be sure I could not remember questions because of the sheer volume of them. Then I waited 10 days and did all the practice exam questions again... guess what? I could not remember the questions and it felt like all new tests again. Great way to reinforce the concepts by doing the exams more than once.
I took the test in January 2016. I marked the questions I was not sure on and did all the questions I was fairly certain on first. This took two hours. Then I went through and did all the questions I was not so sure on for two more hours. The feeling I had during the exam was one of dread. The questions felt like they were written by a lawyer and required an intense concentration to even understand what they were asking. At one point I told myself I can always try again and read another book if I failed. The practice questions were tricky in this book but they are not written the same strange way as the real exam in my opinion. Anyways I did pass the test. I was quite happy!
So do I recommend the book? Absolutely! It was enough for me to pass first try in 4 hours.
My primary criticism would be with the supplemental tests provided. Unlike the traditional CD or download, this book provides access to a web based test engine. The interface doesn't allow you to bookmark a question and go back to it later, your session will time out and you'll be logged off it you sit idle too long. I found both of these to be very frustrating as it can be next to impossible for a person like me to be able to carve out hours at a time to dedicate to practice exams.
That being said i feel the book is worth purchasing and reading. Good luck i hope this helped.
**Edit 1/11/16 Since the publisher has fixed the issues with the supplemental tests and now provided a pdf copy of the book i have changed my rating from 4 stars to 5. I'd like to add that this is the first time I've ever had a publisher read, respond and make changes based on reviews and suggestions. Thank you!
I should note I have about 15 years of experience as a jack-of-all-trades UNIX admin and I have been working specifically in security for about 3 years. I had a really good foundation but I learned a LOT from this book.
CISSP EXAM COMMENTS
I liked the book. I learned a lot from it. I read the entire book. I took all the chapter questions (I always waited a day or two after reading the chapter so I could get a better idea on what I really learned). I took all four sample exams after reading the entire book. I passed my CISSP exam on 2/17/2016 and I felt like almost everything I needed to know was in the book. There were a few questions that I don't think the book covered but I felt like they were practical things that a security engineer would already know.
My primary comment concerning the book and the chapter questions and practice exams is that most of the provided questions are fairly straightforward. When taking the real exam, I found the questions notably more difficult because I often had to read the question a second (or third!) time to really understand what was being asked. I took all four practice exams as if they were real exams. I completed all four in under two hours each and scored 78%, 82%, 84% and 89% (I think the final test was the easiest of the four). The real CISSP exam took me about 3.5 hours and all I know is that I passed. TAKE YOUR TIME. READ EVERY QUESTION CAREFULLY. READ ALL THE ANSWERS AND AFTER YOU PICK ONE, REREAD THE QUESTION TO MAKE SURE YOUR ANSWER STILL SOUNDS GOOD. It's not a race or a contest. What matters is that you pass it and don't have to pay for a retake!
Every CISSP exam is a bit different but I found mine hit a couple areas really hard (SDLC specifically) but the practice exams just barely touched on them. It is important to read the entire book.
I did about 80% of my reading in the Kindle app on an iPad and in general I prefer my iPad over paper books these days (portability and low light reading). In the case of this book, there is a lot of formatting that is lost in the Kindle version. The Kindle tends to squish whitespace and indents and such so some of the visual layout just becomes text. This is the first technical book I have used Kindle for and though I did 70% of my reading there, I was not fully satisfied with it. Another annoyance on the Kindle was that the TOC drop down interface only had the chapter heads and no easy jump to a specific subsection. Some of these chapters are about 80 pages which is like 200 swipes on an iPad mini. It does support all the awesome things you expect from Kindle like bookmarks and highlights and such. I used highlights to mark things I knew I wanted to review multiple times like the big encryption algorithm comparison table and some of the model definitions or process summaries.
The paper book is a goddam tome. For fun I like to drop it loudly on my desk and say "THIS is what I am working on." I loved the experience of reading the paper book compared to the Kindle version but I only spent about 10% of my time on the paper book because of the size. It was difficult to transport and I could not easily read it in bed or reclining. The paper is very thin which did not bother me but may bother some. I can't imagine how large and heavy it would be if they did't use such thin paper. I really love paper books but considering the size of this one I think I have to recommend you skip it unless you really really just want paper or you really really want this on your shelf as a trophy and/or a warning unto others.
SYBEX ONLINE MATERIAL
The Sybex online material is a mixed bag. You can access the material using information in the introduction of either version of the book. One awesome feature is that after you are registered and verified your purchase you can download a PDF version of the book. This is what I spent the other 20% of my time reading. The PDF version is a tough read on an iPad mini but more manageable on a full size iPad or MBA and it looked great on my 24" monitor. The PDF version has a really nice TOC in the sidebar with all the subsections marked and that feature really underscored one of the big shortcomings of the Kindle version. The PDF also has all the perfectly excellent formatting that the paper book includes. I, uh, didn't know I could download the PDF when I bought the paper book or I probably would not have bought the paper book.
The Sybex online material also includes electronic versions of all the chapter tests. The web interface is a little clunky on this but it works. A complaint about the chapter tests is that they do not randomize. The 20 questions after each chapter are always in the same order. This becomes painfully apparent if you select several chapters but only want (AKA have time for) a limited number of questions. Early on I selected the first three chapters but limited the question count to 20 and what I got was all 20 Chapter 1 questions in the order they appear in the book (sigh). This online resource is nice but it could have been so much better.
The Sybex online material also includes four 250 question practice exams. This seems like a pretty awesome bonus and it is nice but the interface for the exams is slightly different from the chapter tests. You can bookmark a question but there is no way to go back to a previous question and review or change your answer. In the online help is says this is a feature to mimic the actual CISSP exam which generates a giant WTF from me. This is another resource which is nice but could have been awesome. To add insult to injury there is a timeout on the web page that can kick you out. I am guessing it is a two hour timeout but my method is less than scientific. I finished all practice exams in under 120 minutes but while I was reviewing my wrong answers on two of the exams I got a session timeout which kicked me out and reset my exam. In both cases I was in the result summary screen and closed it to go back to the test review screen. I theorize that as long as you are in the review screen you won't have problems but there is some sort of session check when you transition. I said it wasn't scientific.
The online material also includes a glossary which I will probably review before taking the exam and set of online flashcards which I don't plan to use because I'm just not a flashcard guy. I may end up regretting that of course.
