In fact, it should be one of the first certificates pursued after a couple of years of experience. I regret not doing it earlier.
I think it is not as complicated as it has been advertised to be, but it depends on the individual. I have only read a few books and I believe you will be ready to start.
During the course of reading these books, I have abandoned my idea that these are textbooks that I would need to complete in order to become a certified CISSP. Instead, I am enjoying it as a regular book. This has opened new avenues for me and enabled me to be a better analytical thinker.
This means that, for example, if the module discusses the kind of processes that are done during BCP or asset management, I focus on the exact required entities and the steps that have to be considered rather than sharing ideas from flash cards and all that stuff.
