Best Security+ Study Guide


I bought this book along w/ a couple of the others to study for the Security+ exam. I wanted to make sure I used the best book, so I read the first couple of chapters of each before deciding to use this one as my primary book. I continued to use Passport for quick, review stuff. This book was by far the most comprehensive and gave the most detailed and thorough explanation of the objectives. A lot of the other book throw terms at you with quick definitions, but never really give you any context or production examples. I also found this book mapped better to the official CompTIA objectives than any of the other books. The book has all of the objective numbers in the margins, so you always know which objecitves you're studying. This makes is a lot easier to make sure you've covered everything. The test questions were also very good, and the explanations of the quesitons and answers were very informative. The book help me pass. Well done.

OO Thinking


Coming from a C, C++ coding background (and having a degree in Computer Engineering) I liked the book a lot. Java does not offer back doors to let you get around the Object Oriented nature of the language and it is necessary to move another step up the ladder to a more pure form of OO if you are to use the language successfully. Bruce helps move you up the ladder. Thanks!

A Bona Fide Work of Art


I have used a lot of strategy guides for video games. Mostly, it is a strictly utilitarian venture.

I have to say, though, the design of this book BLEW ME AWAY. It is AWESOME! It accomplishes its utlitarian purpose with flying colors, thanks to the excellent writing. Even in that context, the layout and the design were phenomenal. I really don't think I've ever seen a more well-designed strategy guide, EVER!

This book is so amazing, I would recommend it to people who aren't even going to play the game. It is really that good. The design transports you to another world. I am going to be especially mindful of Prima Guides into the future. They have won my loyalty with this book.
