Recommends it for: Self-Study or Instructors

I ordered this book after reading a CompTIA Security+ Exam book by another author. While I thought the book was good, I felt a little anxiety about crossing the line and taking the exam afterwards. I might add, that not only must I pass the exam, but I'm also going to be teaching this course. If others are to follow me, I'm feeling that they might end up feeling like I do (slightly uneasy).

I'm halfway through Darril Gibson's book and I can tell you that you should DEFINITELY read this book befor

Decent overview but not sure someone with little experience could pass by reading this book alone. The author's forum has some good information on the simulations that are not present at all in the book.

Just took the exam with no additional study materials other than this book, and passed, so it must be pretty good :-) Seriously, it is well written and up to date, a great read if you are looking to brush up on security topics or take the CompTIA exam!

The information was sound, but it seemed like every piece of text in the Kindle edition was a link, so I found myself constantly inadvertently clicking on links when I only wanted to go to the next page.

Everything I needed to know for the Security+ all in one book, and a enjoyable read as well. Plenty of examples to put everything into context.

This book helped me rapidly spin up from zero cyber security knowledge to a decent grasp of the basics. It has a good balance of conceptual "gee whiz" info and practical application.
