i felt like the exam was too easy or i prepared well.
seriusly just get this book and read twice whole book do some practise you definately gonna pass the exam.
Did I pass the test: Yes
Is this my only source of material: NO
Let me get into the basics... For someone who has NO certifications under their belt, NO experience, and NO network security knowledge, this will be a great read for you. However, someone like me who has job experience (Military) as well as my new contractor position, I found myself doing more page flipping rather than reading the book. Also, I would try and understand the basics about computers, and networking in general, before tackling this book. That is my opinion only however, as I worked 4 years in the military doing actual computer work with networks as well as earning my Network+ Certification... didn't bother with A+ as I do not want to be a helpdesk technician- I already have that under my belt.
I bought this book thinking "I am going to read this front to back, on my kindle"
First off, do not buy it for the kindle. I made that mistake. I thought, "I love my kindle, why not?" Well, the diagrams that they have although you can see them, are not as easy to see if say you were reading the PDF or the book.
Second off, the book comes with the PDF for FREE on the CD, so by buying the book you get a digital copy for free anyway.
PLUS- studying on a kindle is difficult, as scanning through a book digitally will never be as seamless as flipping through a book with your hands... never. Trust me, studying with an actual book is better, as you can flip to pages, go back and forward, and see the diagrams so much better... Don't be afraid to mark in the book if you need to take notes- most people keep their books on their bookshelf for reference.
If you really do want it for kindle, you will be happy to see there are highlights from other readers for you to reflect on and study. However, I found the highlights too few to really rely on.
Reading the book does get boring... I am someone who already understands the concepts of network security, so reading about things that I already understand is stale and does not really contribute to my current knowledge. It did however reinforce what I already knew, and did teach me quite a bit about certificate authorities and encryption algorithms.
To me, it went too long between each actual bullet of knowledge I was trying to reach. For someone who wants to just eat information, a smaller book with lots of information crammed in a small space will work better for you. However, small books that does not elaborate requires you to be able to "fill in the blanks" yourself, meaning you must understand and adapt to a new concept quickly and see where it fits into the big picture. For some, this may be the best way to go as it completely and thoroughly walks you through every concept, painfully giving you the most information to offer you the greatest understanding of the situation.
Overall, I was satisfied that I purchased this book, as it is a great reference to material I needed to understand, offering me the bigger picture in situations I had little experience. I would buy this book along with a book with pure information, like a Security+ Quick Prep, and call it a day.
Some things to make sure you understand before the exam (whether or not it's in the book):
- SQL Injection/XSS and examples of what these may _look_ like when auditing
- Cloud computing, particularly the layers
- Find additional sources for SSO
- Self Service Password resetting
- Know your ports
- Be sure you remember "manual dotted decimal to binary conversion"; I got caught off my guard on this one.
- I don't remember seeing this on the exam, but remember that SFTP is not the same as FTPS
- Know the different authentication methods for accessing systems
I passed the exam (well). I have no _formal_ IT background, but for this exam I studied at least an hour a night after work (eight weeks before exam) and read the book three times. About three weeks before the test I studied at least two hours/night. The last five days I studied immensely up to an hour before the exam almost exclusively using internet sources, but I'd recommend using internet sources at least a month prior to the exam. I wanted to mention, though, that I have no kids or wife. ;)
One more thing: make sure you reduce any distractions you may have to an absolute minimum while studying for this exam (except for the occasional game of Modern Warfare).
I'd recommend this book to anyone who's looking to add to their resume like I have with this book.
Considering that I don't work the field and this is also my first ever certification, I believe this book is all that is needed.
I passed with a score of 805.
If you're like me and haven't had any experience and need a crash course then this is probably the book for you.
