This is an easy book to read to get a baseline 60% of what you need to pass Security+. I passed the 100 question Security+ test today. I recommend this cost effective book to start. My most valuable assets were measureup.com and filling in the holes of my knowledge with up date material and research. I dont think there is a two book set to help you pass this test. Spend your money on transcenders and measureup and fill in from there.

I used this book as a secondary book, to review my knowledge 2 days before the exam, I pass the test with the help from newhorizon, ALL-IN-ONE and this book.

In my opinion, this book is written very well with easy to understand writing style as well, the explanations are very concise and clear.

I will give 5 stars if this book has better practice exams, the questions presented by this book are not enough and mostly just require you to memorize the material in order to answer that correctly instead of fully understanding that.

Another thing that bothered me was a question on how to remove broadcast storm, the answer from this book is by creating vlan, I think that the one that remove broadcast storm is STP (correct me if i am wrong) and moreover the author didn't mention anything about broadcast storm in his discussion about switch.

The other things are just good, I would recommend everyone to use this book combined WITH OTHER BOOK as well.

This book came highly recommended from my instructor. It will pay off. The only draw back is that this is for the SY-01 test when it will be outdated come July 31st.

I passed the test with a 836. This is midway between the passing cutoff (764) and the maximum score (900).

I used FastPass as a quick review before taking the test. If you are new to InfoSec, as I was, read a full study guide first.

The one I used was "Security+ Study Guide, 2nd Edition" published by Sybex 2004, ISBN 0-7821-4350-4. This book is on CompTIA's Authorized Quality Curriculum list for this test and it deserves to be.

If you are a seasoned InfoSec pro FastPass may be all you need to pass the test. One caution: FastPass gets asymmetric cryptology and public/private keys wrong (the Study Guide gets it right; also goto rsalabs.com and click Crypto FAQ).

Read my Amazon review on the "Security+ Study Guide, 2nd Edition" mentioned above.
