I'd love to update my stars, but if I knew there wasn't an activation code, I would have bought the physical copy instead of the incomplete Kindle version.
After a handful of emails, going back and forth with Pearson, they provided an access code for the online stuff. I had to prove I actually bought the book and all was good. I haven't taken the exam yet or even hit the book hard, but so far (with my shiny new access code), the book seems fine.
"CompTIA Security+ SY0-501 Exam Cram , Fifth Edition, is the perfect study guide to help you pass CompTIA’s newly updated version of the Security+ exam. It provides coverage and practice questions for every exam topic. The book contains a set of 150 questions. The powerful Pearson Test Prep practice test software provides real-time practice and feedback with all the questions so you can simulate the exam."
The Kindle book does not come with the access code to the online resources. Pearson refuses to acknowledge a purchase on Amazon as valid. Amazon customer service attempted to resolve this problem but could not as Pearson controls the test prep access.
I returned the book and bought CompTIA Security+ Study Guide: Exam SY0-501 7th Edition, Kindle Edition ISBN-13: 978-1119416876 Once I registered on the Wiley Site I had a test exam access code in less than a minute. Do not waste your money with this Kindle book
It covers all the major points from the exam and is almost as extensive as the
Comptia related PDF file.
But it is MUCH cheaper than the $150 Comptia wants for their PDF file.
Read through this book and use for your practice exams and you will be ready for the actual EXAM!

The exam format is quite different from the vote for Joe format in the book so make sure you do the online questions as some of the interactive graphic questions - dragging and dropping resources into place can throw you a bit if you haven't seen them before.
Up to date and relevant - I would concentrate on the Wireless and Crypto sections particularly so you know your AES from a hole in the ground...
