How the Chapters Are Organized
CISSP For Dummies (now in its fourth edition) is unique in the For Dummies series. Because the CISSP examination covers such a broad base of information, we don’t recommend skipping any of the material in this book. You may find some of the information that we present in some of the chapters familiar or easy to understand, but we still recommend at least a quick, cursory read of those chapters. For this reason, we don’t include a quick assessment test at the beginning of each chapter, like other For Dummies certification books do. Instead, we packed this book with as much useful information as possible to help you succeed in your quest for the CISSP certification.
The first page of each domain chapter begins with a brief introduction to the domain covered in that chapter. You can also find a list of chapter objectives that closely correlates to the CISSP knowledge objectives for that domain.
At the heart of each CISSP domain chapter, we extensively cover the knowledge objectives listed in the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK), and we include relevant information for the CISSP exam and enough detail to put the information into proper context.
