Not a bad book, however ruined with her choice of pronouns. Feminine gender is used consistantly to represent leadership and roles of responsibility up to and including the President of the United States. The male form is consistantly used to represent less-than-perfect users, hackers, and other lesser roles including administrative assistants. Not bashing, just stating my own observations. If you are feminist with an axe to grind, this book is for you. If you are a male chauvinist jerk, avoid it at all costs. If you are one of the other 98% of the population that has no agenda, you will be constantly distracted. You might want to avoid this book as well.

I used a combination of this book and the flash cards at and passed the Network+ exam with a decent score. I would recommend this book to others seeking to take the Network+ exam.

I found Tamara Dean's instructional style odd at best. To me the book was verbose, with convoluted information and riddled with irritating analogies. What is up with not including chapter review answers anyway, is this not a study guide? Try author Todd Lammle for an Exam N10-004 study guide. At least Mr. Lammle's Network+ Study Guide affords a chuckle or two along with serious meat on the bone information. Interestingly enough Mr. Lammle's book never gave me the urge to hurl IT through a window in frustration. Don't mind me; Tamara Dean did have some decent information, even though hunting for it was exasperating. I'm just upset about replacement cost of the glass.
