      There are a number of book versions of practice questions for those
      challenging the CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security
      Professional) exam. This is yet another.

      Most of the questions are far too simplistic to represent those on the
      CISSP exam. The vast majority of the queries in the book have simple
      fact-based answers, only occasionally moving into the realm of
      synthesis. The analytical and critical thinking challenges, dealing
      with conceptual issues, that make up the bulk of the CISSP exam are
      almost completely absent from this text. A great many questions in
      the book have a significant amount of extraneous and irrelevant detail
      added, apparently in an attempt to appear to be complex, but the
      solution almost inevitably turns out to be based on a rudimentary

      In most cases the answers given would probably match those accepted if
      these questions were on the exam. Many of the resolutions turn on
      minor issues of wording, and the CISSP exam, while it does pay
      attention to terminology, frequently requires that you accept
      synonyms, in order to prove understanding rather than rote memory.

      Again, even if the answer is correct, sometimes the explanation makes
      no sense. A question on the multilevel Biba model, for example,
      properly identifies integrity as the major factor, but the explanation
      states that Biba is a model "in which security may only flow down."
      (It makes no sense to talk about the flow of "security" since the Biba
      model deals with information flow restrictions, and "down" needs to be
      defined in terms of accuracy.)

      Don't rely on this to pass the CISSP exam.
