"Gives you everything you need and nothing you don't. One of the temptations you face as an author of a certification prep book or course is to include information that you feel is important, but not related to preparation for the certification. Eric Conrad has shown incredible discipline in keeping this book focused on preparing you to take the CISSP." --Stephen Northcutt, President, The SANS Technology Institute

This book covers "almost" all of the topics you can expect to be tested in the exam. The exam itself includes 25 questions that won't be graded and will be used only for research purposes. If you already have enough (real deep) experience in IT Security Domain, then this book is "probably" enough for you.
The biggest plus of this book, which I really love, is the precise approach used to explain complex topics. The authors, have a done a brilliant job in explaining really complicated stuff in just 1 or 2 lines. For e.g., Polyinstantiaion and Polymorphism are explained superbly. The official book might make you faint if you read those topics.
The book tries to cover all domains in about 500 pages compared to other study materials that do in 1000 pages. Simple english is used through out so that first time readers will understand the principles and concepts without trouble. The Authors believe that even core-security concepts can be explained without complexity and they have proved it. The book also has real life examples that are a good read and can also help you grasp ideas and concepts relatively easily.
The only reason I gave 4 stars for this book is that the book claims that you will pass the first time - and may be you will! But you shouldn't take that chance and still read other materials that help you pass the exam and obtain the certification. The reason I say this is because, the book is very precise and "when" (not "if") you need an even more detailed reading - which you will on some topics - you definitely need something big like Shon Harris or even the official book.
Apart from Books, you will also need to get practice questions from elsewhere. The included questions in the book are really awesome and was useful during the exam. You can look in the internet sites like transcender, cccure to purchase/subscribe to practice questions. Know your weakness and work on it. Take notes - most important. Grasp Ideas/Concepts and understand "why" - the reason behind answers or explanations.
You want to get a quick understanding of complex topics? - read this book. Now you want to dig more on that topic? - get the bigger ones. Keep both side by side and help yourself understand. Don't forget to take notes while you study. It will help you remember weaker areas and focus on it.
Don't take notes for topics you already know - take only for ones that you need to study or remember again and again. For e.g, I come from a networking background and my notes on the topic "Telecom and Network Security" was just 2 pages. But Cryptography went on for 5 pages! Just note down what is new to you and things that will be complex to remember - like SDLC Phases, BCP Steps etc.
Another reason for the 4 stars is that I simply couldn't get the two practice exams that were promised in the description. I got a link to publisher's website where the practice exams were hosted but the exams are simply not there. The page won't load any questions. Not even an error message. It would be really great if the authors included the exams in a CD that could be installed on a laptop or something like that.
Anyway, get this book if you want to pass the exam. This can serve as a very good revision material yet still help understand complex topics quite easily.
My study material consisted of this book, the condensed version of this book called 11th Hour CISSP (also a good resource, although extremely abbreviated), a book of practice tests that supposedly covered the new material (see my review of that book), and Internet articles covering SDN, PCI-DSS 3, Internet of Things, and mobile security vulnerabilities and concerns.
I read this book cover-to-cover and did practice tests from the Shon Harris book. This book will NOT prepare you for the Shon Harris test questions (which are considerably harder than what's on the actual CISSP exam), but it will prepare you for the exam!
One thing to note, the book says it comes with two full practice exams available online (it was published in 2012), but now in 2014, it doesn't seem as though the online content is available anymore, which is a shame. Maybe they're still there somewhere, but I didn't bother looking too hard for them.
I would actually also recommend Sybex's CISSP Study Guide (6th ed). It's another 1,000 page tome, but as a single resource, I think it does an effective job at preparing you for the exam. It comes with 3 full tests plus other questions. I thought these questions were pretty close in difficulty to the actual exam. You can't go wrong with either book.
I literally finished the exam three hours ago and passed on my first attempt.
