Success in this respected exam opens the door to your dream job as a security expert as well as an eye catching salary. But passing the final exam is challenging. Every year a lot of candidates do not prepare sufficiently for the examination, and fail at the final stage.

Each chapter contains some practice questions. A full-blown mock test is included for practice. This book is not a replacement to full study guides and tries to build on and reemphasize the concepts learned from such guides.
