    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!?!?
