RVW] , but it comes close. 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. 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. 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. However, this set of questions would not provide a good basis for assessing your chances of passing the CISSP exam.
