Having read through this exam guide cover-to-cover, and having over 20 years of networking, internet, and telecommunications experience, this is a solid book for preparations to take the CompTIA Network+ exam. However, if you don't have significant experience in the area of networking or internet, you will need to increase your chances for passing the new 2009 Network+ exam by visiting other sites on the Internet particularly in the following areas:

* subnetting
* network security
* Local area network concepts

These topics can be researched very easily with an advanced Google search on the listed topics.

The rest of the topics for the 2009 CompTIA Network+ exam appear to be adequately covered. Mr. Meyers did an excellent job on the book, and should be commended.

I rate the book: 8 out of 10.

OK, I read some sections and skimmed other sections in the Exam guide (Fourth Edition). It is the best of the three latest Network+ guide books that I've read. I wished it was my first. It is well-rounded in emphasis, introducing the subject material in an easy-to-grasp way. There seemed to be enough Mac/Linux info. I liked the well descriptive illustrations. I also liked that the material was not introduced before its time, but was described enough at the right time. This book doesn't have any bullet points at the end of the chapters. Though other exam guides are better to cram with, this guide makes a better introduction.

Of the big three Network+ exam guides out there, this is the best and most reliable. I found very few typos (4), and only three areas of conficting detail info. The good news is that none of the questions/answers in the book or in the one practice exam (50 questions) were found to be wrong (and I did all of them). I would recommend this book over the other 2 that I read.

Because of DOD 8570 directive, to keep my present job, I have to pass the Network+ certification. I've worked in the IT industry for 20+ years, however my expertise isn't really related to networking. I have experience with the network, but do not administrate it at all. I bought Lammle's book first. I liked it very well. There are times when he's too vague or over my head with his information. After browsing through the few pages I could see of Myers' book through Google books, it looked to me like he was a little more simple with his explanations. So I bought this book hoping that I could understand places that I couldn't understand with Lammle. The two books work wonderfully together, i think.

While Lammle is straight forward and high level, Myers' clears confusion by bringing it down to my level. The only problem I have with Myer's book is that he gets way too deep into the most simplistic things. I glazed over often when he went into great detail about security and how it works. Yes, security is a vital part of your network, but really I don't want to know the intricate details of how encryption works, I just want to know when and how to use it properly. I could care less about the conversions of a series of ones and zeroes.

And with Lammle's book, I was able to subnet after reading the chapter on it about five times, but I was still struggling with it. He used a term something like 'interesting octect'. I never did get that. I couldn't tell what made any part of the address 'interesting'. I was really hoping Myers's book would clear that up for me. But Myer's lesson on subnetting was horendous. I couldn't follow it and it made absolutely no sense at all. So I'm in the dark for that information.

I am almost finished with this book, and have been for the most part very pleased with it. Meyers does a great job of explaining things in an easy-to-understand way, while still getting in to the nitty gritty. For the most part, I think the pictures were a tad too simple, but others seem to like them.

I have read Lammle's Network+ 2009 ed book twice, so I have been mentally comparing the two the whole time I have been reading this. First off, I think that over all this book takes first place. It just does a much better job of explaining things, and doesn't introduce too many concepts without actually explaining them (Lammle likes to introduce a topic and then not explain it until much later in the book). I really liked that there were whole chapters dedicated to DNS and IPv6- Lammle's had a just little blurbs for both. This book seemed to do a much better job describing cabling standards as well. Meyers book doesn't seem to have many low points. Lammle's started off strong, but the last, shall we say, quarter of the book felt weak; it felt extremely brief like he was trying to cram a lot of high level information into a small amount of pages. I haven't noticed this while reading Meyers book.

The only areas that I think Lammle tops is routing and subnetting. I tried reading Meyers subnetting section, and it pales in comparison. I also liked how Lammle lets you know early on in the book that hubs are old news, and doesn't waste a lot of time on them, instead hammering away over and over again that switches are king. Meyers book (even if just for simplicity's sake) focused a lot on hubs early on, and kind of gave me the feeling of an outdated networking book.

Bottom line- this is a great book, and will aid in becoming Network+ certified. I'd still suggest taking a peak at Lammle's book, even if just for a few chapters (routing and subnetting). It helps to get information from multiple sources.
