This book was recommended to me by a collegue so I thought I'd give it a try. I should have read the reviews before purchasing. I was looking for a more review type book to help me study for the Security+ exam since I already have the background and just need the certs. The book was too basic, did not cover anything in-depth, and repeated itself numerous times. Overall, I would not recommend this book.

With all the hype I've read about Mike Meyers' books, I thought this one was going to be a good one to help me study for the SY0-201 exam. With all the study material I got (three other books besides this one from Sybex, Syngress, and McGraw Hill), this was the least helpful. It's easy to read, but it's very redundant. I don't need to be told that all software should be running the latest security patches and updates 10 times before I turn the page. I need something a little more than that to help me pass the test. If you're going to use this book to help you study, I recommend getting another book or even a brain dump to cover everything this book doesn't.

I took the practice exam on the CD and it said I got a 40% when I know for a fact I had at the very least 70% of the questions correct. When I used the test in open book mode, it gives me wrong answers and wrong explanations. Book's okay but I'd rather spend my money on Darril Gibson's material.

Studied with this book, used the two included tests and the one that I was given as a free download. Missed only one question on the Security+ test. What more can I say? The book did what I needed it to do, covered the parts of the topic where I was a bit hazy. Of course, I am not saying that you can pass with no experience, but if you have a weak spot, this will fortify you in that area.

All I had to do was to read this book from front to back and then study some brains dumps for 4 days and passed the test with flying colors! So get this book and it won't be a waste of time.

Good review book but if this is the only study guide you use you had better have a lot of field experience. Recommend an additional study resource - passed on my first attempt.

I was given this book to teach from in a bootcamp style course. It covers all objectives - objectively. However, the depth of information is lacking on many many topics. This is not just a critique of this book - I havn't yet found a tome that covers all areas of Security+ curriculum - each book I've seen appears to be lacking something. It's a good start, but I don't know if it's enough for someone with no prior knowledge to pass the exam. The insets and "exam guides" are useful, just wish it had a little more meat. If it were half again longer (with good material), I'd have no problem paying a little more for this book.
