This book's first seven chapters cover each of the seven domains on the SSCP exam with sixty or more questions per domain, so you can focus your study efforts exactly where you need more review. The book also contains two complete practice exams that you can use as time trials to assess your readiness for the SSCP and a future in the field of information assurance.
