The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'CISSP Practice Questions Exam Cram 2 (Exam Cram 2)':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
All CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) candidates want sample questions to practice on before they write the exam. This set is not the worst I've seen (that would have been the question volume of the "CISSP Examination Textbooks" [cf. BKCISPET.RVW]), but it comes close. As usual, the book is divided into chapters by the domains of the CISSP CBK (Common Body of Knowledge). The questions are on the simplest level of the questioning taxonomy; fact based; rather than occupying the analytical and critical thinking levels that most actual CISSP exam questions represent. (Krutz and Vines' "Advanced CISSP Prep Guide: Exam Q & A" [cf. BKADCIPG.RVW] is as simplistic, but also tends to veer off-topic.) Wording on the questions is careless: a question that asks about "effectiveness" probably really means efficiency, otherwise the answer given is incorrect. Gregg seems to have decided and doctrinaire opinions, probably based on a quick reading of one of the less accurate CISSP exam guides. There is an attempt to make many of these simplistic questions more "complex" by creating scenarios: generally the scenarios have nothing to do with the point of the question and are simply excess verbiage. Major concepts are left out: in access controls, for example, Gregg seems to have no idea of the difference between access controls and overall security control types, and there is nothing to address the major topics of identification, authentication, authorization, and accountability. The telecommunications chapter has almost no questions on basic data communications concepts. (And Ethernet is *not* synchronous communication: a frame can be transmitted at any time. I suspect Gregg thinks any block communication is synchronous, and it's been a long time since that was true.) Building construction and layered defence issues are missing from physical security. Lots of stuff is missing from the cryptography section, and there is a larger number of errors than in other domains. Astoundingly, the security management quiz has almost nothing on policy. Investigations are the primary concern in that domain, with very little relating to law (or ethics). Malware gets all of one question in application security. The majority of answers given are not wrong as such: a qualified security professional would probably get most of them right, albeit with much head-scratching. (In this, the book is similar to "The Total CISSP Exam Prep Book" [cf. BKTCIEPB.RVW].) However, this set of questions would not provide a good basis for assessing your chances of passing the CISSP exam. copyright Robert M. Slade, 2005

Welcome to the CISSP Practice Questions Exam Cram 2! The aim of this book is to provide you with practice questions complete with answers and explanations that will help you learn, drill, and review for the CISSP certification exam.Who Is This Book For? If you have studied the CISSP exam's content and feel you are ready to put your knowledge to the test, but you're not sure you want to take the real exam yet, then this book is for you! Maybe you have answered other practice questions or unsuccessfully taken the real exam, reviewed, and want to do more practice questions before going to take the real exam; then this book is for you too! Be aware that the CISSP exam is difficult and challenging; therefore, this book shouldn't be your only vehicle for CISSP study. Because of the breadth and depth of knowledge needed to successfully pass the CISSP exam, be sure to use plenty of study material and use this book as a drill, review, and practice vehicle.What Will You Find in This Book? As mentioned before, this book is all about practice questions. This book is separated according to the 10 domains you will find in the CISSP exam. Each chapter represents a domain and there are three elements in each: * Practice Questions—This section includes the numerous questions that will help you learn, drill, and review. * Quick Check Answer Key—After you have finished answering the questions, you can quickly grade your exam from this section. Only correct answers are given here. No explanations are offered, yet. * Answers and Explanations—This section offers you the correct answers as well as further explanation about the content posed in that question. Use this information to learn why an answer is correct and to reinforce the content in your mind for exam day. Hints for Using This Book Because this book is a paper practice product, you might want to complete your exams on a separate piece of paper so that you can reuse the exams over and over without having previous answers in your way. Also, a rule of thumb across all practice question products is to make sure you are scoring well into the high 90% range in all topics before attempting the real exam. The higher percentages you score on practice question products, the better your chances for passing the real exam. Of course, we can't guarantee a passing score on the real exam, but we can offer you plenty of opportunities to practice and assess your knowledge levels before entering the real exam.Need Further Study? Are you having a hard time correctly answering these questions? If so, you probably need further review. Be sure to see the sister product to this book, the CISSP Training Guide, by Que Publishing (ISBN 0-7897-2801-X), for further review.© Copyright Pearson Education. All rights reserved.
