Title: Programming Embedded Systems in C and C ++
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Michael Barr
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
This is also a great book for the beginners.

This book gives a good introduction without being so basic that the experienced programmer loses interest. I read it cover-to-cover in an afternoon.
I've been programming embedded systems for about 5 years, the last year or so in C++ and found the discussion of C vs. C++ as they relate to the embedded world of particular interest. I also learned some new tricks in the Optimization chapter.
Every programmer I know has O'Reily books on their shelf. This is my first, definitely not my last.

Great book for a moderate exam!!

While this book does a good job covering the basic topics that are covered in ComPTIAs Security+ Objectives, it does not go into enough detail about the subject matter needed to acheive a passing score on the real Security+ Exam. For final preperation I found two other books that helped me to get my Security+ Certification. They were:The Mike Myers Security+ Passport(Which was written by Trever Kay)and The Security+ Exam Guide ISBN#1584502517

Save your money

My copy ended up in the trash. There are so many typos, grammatical errors and mismatches between the examples and the software, that I should have returned it for a refund. It reads like a rough draft of what could be a book. And to the good people at "Dummies", PLEASE use a proofreader next time.
