From the the Series Editor, Mike Meyers

Hello! I’m Mike Meyers, president of Total Seminars and author of a number of popular certification books. On any given day, you’ll find me replacing a hard drive, setting up a web site, or writing code. I love every aspect of this book. It’s part of a powerful book series called Mike Meyers’ Certification Passports. Every book in this series combines easy readability with a condensed format—in other words, it’s the kind of book I always wanted when I went for my certifications. Putting a huge amount of information in an accessible format is an enormous challenge, but I think we have achieved our goal and I am confident you’ll agree.

I designed this series to do one thing and only one thing—to get you the information you need to achieve your certification. You won’t find any fluff in here. T.J. Samuelle and I packed every page with nothing but the real nitty gritty of the CompTIA Security+ certification exam. Every page has 100 percent pure concentrate of certification knowledge!

    This book is a complete waste of time and money. It is far less

    This book is a complete waste of time and money. It is far less in-depth than any other book I have seen. The end-of-chapter questions are worthless. Many of them are phrased in such a way that several of the answers are correct. Some are just nonsensical. Example, (paraphrasing) what is the best way to prevent after hours office laptop theft? A. cable locks or B. remove laptops from desks and lock them in cabinets. Their answer is B! Their reasoning - a determined thief could cut the cable. Evidently, a determined thief couldn't break open the cabinet. Are You Kidding Me!?!?
