Good evening to all,

The best Study Book as a companion to your certification preparation is at the moment is the new Sybex CISSP (ISC)2 Certified Information Systems Security Professional OFFICIAL study guide, Seventh Edition.   

I recommend you get the Kindle version which is very inexpensive and it will save you significant time when you look for specific topics as you do quizzes. The companion website that comes with the kindle version allow you to download a PDF version of the book as well.  This is a win win.

See the details below:

The kindle version as well as the printed version comes with tons of resources on the Publisher Companion Website (see link below).   You get access to:

  • More than 1,400 practice questions
  • More than 600 electronic flashcards
  • Searchable key term glossary
  • Interactive test engine
  • A copy of the book in PDF format

This is the book that ISC2 has endorsed and recommend today.

It is by far a lot better as an overall offer and content than the previous OFFICIAL study guide from ISC2.


The companion web site is a must visit. I strongly recommend you bookmark the following link:

At the link above you can find a copy of the book in PDF format and it is downloadable.  

You can then use your preferred PDF reader to search through the file which is more flexible than the search function within the Kindle app.

The site also has a great glossary of terms downloadable in PDF format as well.


I would like to say THANKS! to CISSP-Candidate who is a member of the site for sending me details about the companion web site and also instructions (see below) on how to get access to the companion web site if you have the Kindle version of the book.  See his instructions within the comments section below.
