Good foundation but practice with tests!

This "lecture style" book immediately throws you into the 6 domains of Security+ and is A LOT to take in even if you're familiar with secure computing practices. I prefer question & answer style audio books but either way ultimately this was perhaps only supplemental to passing my test. I recommend practice testing and study any wrong answers or terms/ports you are unfamiliar with. Once you can pass practice tests consistently and confidently, then go schedule your test. You'll have 100 questions, 90 minutes, use the mark a question button to quickly move onto the next question so you can review unanswered or unsure answers at the end. I finished in under 1hr and surpassed the 750 minimum score by 100+. Rules all may change after 1/15/2011 review posted 1/6/11.

Out of Date, but good foundation

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. this book provides an easy to digest foundation for best security practices, and lots of terminology the readers may be unfamiliar with. If you are studying for the test, do not rely only on this book, as it is out of date, and only meant to be supplimental.

Any additional comments?

An up to date version would be wonderful, for the SYS-401

Older info, but good info.

I have the newer books and the newer curriculum and the newer everything else. But I downloaded this audiobook to listen to while I'm driving in the car.

For that purpose this audiobook was perfect. It's not the newest information, but it's good foundational information that helped me supplement the newer books that I already have. For that reason I recommend this audiobook.

Good Addition to Training

This is great for getting into S+ but not enough to pass the exam. It well get your mind ready to absorb all the knowledge of the course, but you need to read other books and have a thorough understanding of networks for the exam.

very helpful - beware the version

I downloaded this book to study for the exam without checking the version - totally my bad. Still, even though the material was outdated for the 2019 exam, it was helpful as a base of study for me. I recommend this book as a supplement to other books for exam study.

Good review, narration is horrible

I hadn't studied computer security except tangentially before listening to this audiobook, and I feel like I know a little bit more about it, now, but not much.

The lecture series is presented in a somewhat organized manner, but it becomes annoying to hear, "This completes this lecture" over and over again. The narrator is so boring that unless you increase the speed you will fall asleep.

The material was good, but I didn't think that it delved into the more technical aspects of security. The lectures focused more on terminology and general security theory. Overall, this is the least helpful of the CompTia lecture series audiobooks that I've heard, but it was a good terminology primer for learning about security issues.

Boring and stilted, poorly written and presented

The lifeless narrator reads his script as if it consists if bullet points. Not enough context is provided to make this book very useful for me. Also, the narrator mispronounced many words (like "ititerate" for "iterate"). I'd give this book one limp dead frog out of five.

informative but not a good translation to audio

a lot of good information here but it did not translate well to audiobook. the result is more of a list of facts then a comprehensive guide

Good preparation for the CompTIA Security+ exam

This was an insightful, high-level overview of the topics covered in the CompTIA Security+ exam.
