    The Eleventh Hour book and to a lesser extent, the CISSP in 21 days were written as a refresher for most people already working in the cyber field. The AIO Shon Harris book is comprehensive and meant for people that need to fill in knowledge gaps. There are eight domains and not everyone has worked in all eight of them so the Shon Harris books are good to gain whatever knowledge you might need for the exam.

    OP, make sure you check the "passed CISSP" threads so you can see what others used.

    In my case, the Harris book was just too much and I only used it for my two weaket domains. I also found the OIG difficult to swallow so just ended up perusing it.

    You should start doing practice exams just so you know how questions will be asked on the real exam. You'll be able to notice where your weak points are if you take notice of the questions you get wrong. You'll find that you're stronger on some domains and weaker than others so focus on the weak areas.
    I wouldn't recommend reading an entire book all over again and that is why it's better to start doing practice questions to see where your knowledge gap is and just re-read those areas.
