Comprehensive learning, covers all objectives, and complete.

Absolutely the best study guide books out there. Sybex/Wiley offers a thorough and comprehensive material guide. If you want a quick exam cramming information sheet, this isn't for you. This Security+ book walked me through each of the concepts using charts and information in a way that makes sense. It's a great way to learn and retain the information because you understand it in a deeper way, rather than just memorizing facts and not knowing how they are applied.
I will always buy this brand of books when studying for my future exams. I know some people are able to memorize the information, but for me I need that more in-depth learning material to understand it.
IMPORTANT: The SY0-301 exam is now outdated as of January 2015, so be sure to get the newest material for the SY0-401 exam. It has different objectives covered. I would definitely recommend the Sybex/Wiley brand.
