As another reviewer mentioned, the text is not fully aligned with the exam - because the authors are not wired into the Association's developed of the exam and the BoK.On the other hand, the book is actually better organized and thoughtfully crafted than the sometimes haphazard works produced by ISACA, Which is to say that if your goals extend beyond the craven purpose of adding abbreviations to your email signature and resume, the book is quite worthwhile.But that's not why people will buy it, and certainly isn't why I bought or even learned about it.Perhaps the authors would be better served adding to the broader understanding of risk management through an exploration of the ISACA framework rather than attempting to supplement ISACA's own endeavors in this area.Not that ISACA is doing such a great job with it, either. The association's prep books are overpriced and weak on exposition and rationale for what appears in the BoK (perhaps reflecting its author-by-consensus development).The topic is so important -- more important than computer security, in fact -- that both ISACA and Rogers still have a lot of work to do before risk management for IT becomes mainstream.
I thoroughly enjoyed studying this book, and knew the material VERY well. BUT... I counted exactly 5 questions out of the 150 questions on the actual cert exam that were covered sufficiently in this book. In addition, the practice questions in the book and on the included exam had numerous questions requiring two or more answers. On the actual exam, all questions required one and only one answer.I started by emailing the publisher to let them know of the issues, but did not get an adequate response, so... My suggest? DO NOT purchase this book.
The book is well organized and clear. Typical of the series, has nice tips and pointers and included CD with practice exams.The issue is that this is the first release in this class (All-in-One Exam Guides) and maybe the author is out of sync with the updated exams. The first 6 chapters (out of a total 9 and 3 Appendices) , while informative, are too focused on frameworks. Only the last 3 or so chapters are relevant for the perspective of taking the exam.To repeat myself a bit - the book is good learning, but does not meet the stated objective of the series - the Exam Guide. It is extremely out of sync with actual exam coverage. So in my opinion cannot be relied upon for preparing for the exam. Definitely not All-In-One Is All You Need as advertised. Maybe the author can redo the book for the second release.
A very good book that delivers as promised. Excellent information and structure. Added it to my professional library
