Summary

The CISSP certification is the gold standard for security professionals. This exam resource is up to date for the 2015 CISSP Common Body of Knowledge created by ISC2. Simple CISSP has been intentionally kept as brief as possible without the "fluff" many other tomes include. The book is narrated by the author to ensure all information is conveyed by someone who understands the industry. As a result, all acronyms and security terminology is correctly pronounced and described.

its hard going - but thats not the authors fault<br />

i use it in conjunction with other material. The CISSP subject matter can be really boring so its really not Phils fault it can be hard going. This is best considered a supplement to online tutorials, practise tests and books (yes, paper books). happy to have it in my library.

OK, as a compendium with other sources

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Time well spent if you are listening straight through. However, if you are looking for clarification on a particular domain, it will be difficult to find.
I use it on my drive to and from CISSP class which is 90 minutes each way. Sometimes I want to brush up on a particular area before and after class. Very difficult, because the chapters aren't labeled.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Phil Martin has a good voice. Very easy to listen too.

How could the performance have been better?

Labeling the chapters would make this book a 5 star. It's difficult to use it as a study tool when you can't find what you're looking for.

Could you see Simple CISSP being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

This question is not applicable to the book.... Come on Audible?!?!

Any additional comments?

Label the Chapters please. Can't really use it as a study compendium without it.

Passed the exam!

I used this resource when I was driving or walking. I used the Sybex book and transcender while at home. I attended a boot camp that used the sybex book. This audio book helped me reinforce topics.

Great information, but,,,

The information was presented very well, but there’s not table of contents or chapter names for when you would like to revisit a certain topic. The ability to make notes and bookmark are nice, would love to be able to find specific info easier.

fantastic simplistic Smart guide to CISSP

Thanks Phil for taking the time to not only write this book, but to narrate it as well. You're a true unsung hero in this world of CISSP preparation.

I truly wish Official ISC2 would add your works to the official study guide material for the CISSP. Well done.

Does it really work as an audio book

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This kind of literature is difficult to take in as an audio book, it is better in hand as there are many lists.
Would I recommend it, not really. I would say take a course and learn on the job.

A must for technological literacy

A must for anyone who wants to adopt more technology. While only applicable to IT department and heads, this basic overview is great for business from the emerging markets trying to transition to greater technology literacy.

Not for targeted study or listening…

Chapters are not marked. There are 100+ to sort through and I was thoroughly disappointed by that. It was not worth the time it took to download for that reason and that reason only. Content is good, the publisher is terrible.
