* 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.
First of all, a lot of people here keep mentioning you need to know subnetting, while this is indeed true for later on when you gets certs such as the CCNA, I only got one question regarding Subnets or Subnetting on my exam. I think that you have to truly take his advice, in the first chapter of Mike Myers book he says to make sure you read the book twice. This is what I did, and it helped me a real lot to remember, everything that I missed on the first read through was memorized very well. If I had read the book once, did the chapter review questions, and then taken the exam I would have failed, there is no question about it. Basically just heed this warning, make sure you reread the book if you have no Networking experience, if you do have networking experience, one read through should be enough.
I scored a 750, not a huge pass considering that the minimum score to pass is 720 but a pass is a pass. I am also the type of person I am a memorizer, I do not take notes I just reread and continue to look back at the same concepts, until it sinks in. Overall, this is a great book especially for people who are only entering networking, and trying to get a sniff of the IT field. If you have experience I think this book will also be good for you, however be aware that this book in many parts the author is practically holding your hand, and guiding you through, so it may be frustrating if you already know this stuff. I heard Lammle's book is better for those who have experience in the field. Overall, I give this book a good recommendation, and feel that as long as you read the concepts, and do the chapter review questions you will be in great hands. Don't hesitate to pick this one up!
All in all, I believe this book serves its purpose as a review more than anything, and I am hoping I will pass with flying colors when it comes to the actual exam.
I found it takes about 1 day per chapter (18 chapters) on a working Dad's schedule which translates into roughly 25-50 pages a night. I found the book to be lacking in the detail you will probably need to actually do the job in some areas with entire segments of technology sometimes getting a mere paragraph of explanation but it appears that Meyers knows what he is doing because not one of those glossed sections came up on the test. Out of 100 questions there were 2 that I couldn't remember being addressed in Meyer's book. I would recommend this book for exam purposes. Final score 862/900.
