The best book for certification.


This book is undoubtedly the best book i've seen so far on certification. I cleared the exam with merely 15 days of study. The key concepts have been clearly presented with lots of (working)examples. The material is well prepared and organized. The review questions at end of each chapter are also excellent. A must have if you're serious about the certification.

Under attack!


I got a copy of this book three weeks ago, and have only really gone through the first two chapters -- it's that packed with information.
I have a network with several windows and linux machines, with firewall software on the PCs. According to my firewall logs, they haven't been probed more than once ever few days. Since I didn't have anything protecting my linux machines I followed some of the examples from this book and installed some scan detectors. I was seeing at least ten probes a day. I thought this was funny, since my PC firewalls weren't picking anything up, so I skipped ahead to chapter 6 where it talks about sniffing, and I can see that my PCs are in fact being targeted, but the firewalls don't log anything!
Now I'm extreemly paranoid. I've unhooked my PCs, and am going to only let the linux machines on the net -- with this book at least they can be secured for real.

Fantastic


I have been using SAMS Teach Yourself books for quite some time now and must say all of them have provided me with a lot of knowledge that I have been able to use in my work environment. I have also attended a few of Microsoft instructor led courses and found the book to be at the same level. The advantage with having a book like this is that you can study in your own time and the cost is only a fraction. This book is far the best I have read so far and recommend anyone to buy.
