Re: recommendation for a cissp bootcamp

All of the bootcamps are just CBK reviews.  There is no way for someone to pass this exam without the prerequisite 
experience.  There is just way too much material to cover for any bootcamp to be enough.

If you've been working in security for awhile, I'd recommend one of those 3-5 day CBK reviews that focuses on how to 
pass the test
over a boot camp.  There is a lot of stuff that you'll just need to memorize for the test <cough>Bell-LaPadula</cough> 
and a CBK
review should help flush those items out. 

I'd recommend the CISSP Passport book written by Shon Harris (ISBN 0072225785) over the big book.  It gets to the point 
and is
significantly shorter.  I took the CBK review a month prior, read through the passport book a couple times and that was 
sufficient.
I second all the comments on the CCCure sample tests.

Good luck!

Can anyone recommend a cissp bootcamp that you felt met with your
satisfaction?


Thanks
