Title: Oracle E-Business Suite Financials Handbook (Osborne ORACLE Press Series)
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media
Authors: David James, Simon Russell, Graham H. Seibert
The book seems to be a good (and the only) general overview for people who would like to get familiar with the oracle financials product but it will probably wont add much to experienced oracle financials professionals. Still, a nice to have book for $29.99 (not sure why they raised the price)

Title: CISSP Training Guide
Authors: Roberta Bragg
Over the past year I have found more and more the need to qualified security professionals. I have also found that security certifications are more in demand than ever.
This 700 page manual is an excellent resource for the certification of CISSP. Broken down into three parts part 1 breaks down the exam objectives by covering such topics as access control, which is an excellent read.
Also in this section you cover security management, which I found to be helpful in my job. Other topics in network fundamentals, disaster recovery and law and ethics.
Part 2 is the final review of the entire 10 domains, which has a practice exam included. Part 3 is used for appendices and other material. There is a cd included, using the Prep Logic testing engine, and you can order more exams from the Prep Logic website.
The book has exercises and test and review questions in each chapter. Overall the book can be used in a self study mode or better yet in the formal classroom setting.
