However although all of that was great, the best part of the book in my opinion was the short "need to remember" sections. On my kindle I highlighted all of these short paragraphs and after reading the book 1 time I dedicated myself to read a few times these need to remember sections, which I think was the key to pass this certification. Kudos to the author for such a good book.
- Pre-exam of 75 questions with Assessment Exam Answers and Explanation
- Chapters full of great security information
- Mini exam after each chapter covering what you read.
The author is concise and informative without sacrificing enjoyableness of the read.
There is significantly less blatant verbal fellating of Microsoft in this book than there is in the Dulaney and Easttom Security+ study guide endorsed by CompTIA. Examples are vendor-neutral (as the exam purports to be), and, as a Linux user, I did not feel that I was having Microsoft products shoved down my throat at every turn.
Well done. :)
