i say the book is absolutely fantastic. The questions will help you really prepare and also helps you define the kind of preparation you would require for this exam. Yes, the questions are from the NIST. Whole CISSP has been derived from the NIST if you can go through them. But once done with shon and the CBK this book will really boost your confidence. Good One!!

I can only say that please don't purchase this book. I have done this mistake and can say its no value for money. 75% of the questions are out of CISSP CBK. They have only referred NIST manuals and that is the reason behind such vague and out of requirement questions. Other then that there are so many questions which are highly debatable. Then there comes the questions which have wrong answers for sure. For example can some one tell me under what circumstances software testing can not be first line of defense while Quality assurance can be? Its a big NO. STAY AWAY it will confuse you..
