1. Shon Harris is by far the most recommended.  Still, don't read just one book.  And don't read just books geared specifically for the CISSP.  Sign up at cccure.org and read over the many files in the Main Library.  You will also want to read over the NIST documents.

Shon Harris is good. I would personally recommend a week long training class. NIST docs are very good docs but not for the CISSP exam. As for the exam what do you want to know about it? There is only so much anyone who has passed it can say about the exam itself (like we are not able to talk about the questions and such). I passed mine back in 2003 but I understand it has gotten easier from people who have taken it lately (but it's still not an easy test).
