Title: Network+ Exam Cram 2 (Exam Cram N10-002)
Publisher: Que
Authors: Mike Harwood, Ed Tittel
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Concise Coverage of Exam Goals


I give this book 5 stars because it does what it sets out to do -- allow you to pass the Network+ exam. If that's your goal, this is the book for you. If, however, you are looking to ace the exam and gain real-world applicable knowledge, you'll be better off augmenting this material with another book.
For study, I used only this book and the "Network+ Training Guide" by Mike Harwood (not knowing that this book is an abbreviated version of that one -- which is definitely is), along with 6+ years in the IT industry to score an 873 out of 900 on the Network+ exam.
So although most of the material presented in this book was review, I found myself thinking, "oh, yeah -- that was covered in one or both of those books" for 95%+ of the questions that I encountered on the exam.
In short, if you've got some experience in IT and just want a book that'll give you an outline of what's expected of you on the exam, this is it. If you need a little more in-depth information, "Network+ Training Guide" by Mike Harwood is for you.

Decent, but a sleeping pill nonetheless


I am a fan of Minasi's older books, but this one does not hit the mark. I would go and use Technet before mastering this book. I did get a lot out of it, (dont get me wrong, the book has a lot to offer), but is it worth the 75 thousand pages you need to wade through? I would rather just read technet instead. I guess, this would make a decent reference instead as trying to read it straight through may kill you.
