Overall, I'm very satisfied.

Like any other textbook, the material is fluffed up with excessive amout of explanation than you will need. Then again, that's coming from someone who's been using linux as the main OS for over a decade. Probably having more information is usually better than having not enough information. Besides, the book isn't terribly thick either.
First five chapters cover the 101 portion of the exam. So you can concentrate on those materials for your first exam, then the rest of the book for your 102.
At first I thought, "alright, this book seems good." Then I found the additional study tools in Appendix B (page 554). This extra stuff has helped me study so much more efficiently. It's a package of study tools that you can download from the link listed on the book, and the practice exams in it is an awesome tool. Well, it helped me.
