Spend the extra $12 and buy Mike Meyers' Network+ All-In-One Exam Guide. While this book is okay and will probably help you pass, his all-in-one guides are much more comprehensive and geared more towards people with limited experience. Also, the all-in-one guides include several practice exams, access to the online simulations and videos, as well as a .pdf of the book, which are extremely helpful in preparing for the CompTIA exams. (Access to the exams and simulations alone will cost you $125 on the TotalSem website, so it's actually a very good value.) This book includes access to just a few of the simulations and videos.To offer a comparison and a little bit of background, for the A+ exams, I used the Exam Cram (Pearson Certification) guide for my first A+ exam, and Mike Meyers' A+ All-In-One Exam Guide for the second A+ exam. Even though I passed both on the first attempt, I did better using the Mike Meyers book, which is much more comprehensive. Also, he really does an excellent job of explaining things so that you truly understand them, rather than focusing on memorization. I purchased the Network+ Exam Cram guide and the Mike Meyers Passport for Network+ at the same time that I bought my A+ study materials, but if I could do it over again I would purchase just the All-In-One guides.
Overall, probably a pretty good book, however there are a lot of mistakes. Most are just sentences repeated twice in the same paragraph or a tip in the wrong section. Some terms that are on the exam are not addressed at all in the book. I went to both his website and publisher's website, but there are no corrections on this book in the errata section.
Been using this book in a class I teach for years; written well for the beginner, but advanced users would probably want more.
Good info and the cd-rom wwas helpful.
the discount code did not work even though the book was new... who used it? i dont know.
