    a question about this book - what do you think of it?
    To be honest I was preparing from Passport Network+ and I did well, do you think the book will do? Not many people mention it here, that's why I am curious

    Never known anyone who has used it. Most everyone gets the Sybex (which I don't like - sorry, Sybex!), the AIO (which I do like), and the Syngress (which I wholeheartedly recommend).

    in case of N+ I found Passport easier to read than AIO of Mike Meyers, I read AIO once and then Passport twice, and it was like condensed knowledge without any chit-chats, I wonder if S+ will be same

    The passport+ for security is not rounded enough to give you a complete knowledge of the security realm.

    I used the Syngress book myself, which is a great tome, but ignore the poor questions which were written by 1p/word freelancers.

    As for recommendations, I would suggest using both the Syngress book and the All-In-One.

    Remember, the point is not just to pass an exam, the exam is certifiying a level of knowledge and those two books will cover everything required.

    I think your not realising that the passport books are supposed to be used for revision i.e chapters are condensed to be point specific whilst the AIO books go into greater depth about the subjects within the chapters.

    I actually used the sybex book for the security + I found it had a lot of holes in it but I still scraped a pass. I would suggest you follows Mikes advice and get the syngress book as everyone who has read it seems to rave about it.
