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.
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 If you are studying for the test, do not rely only on this book, as it is out of date, and only meant to be supplimental.
An up to date version would be wonderful, for the SYS-401
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.
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.
My only real complaint with this series is the narrator. Not only is his voice not very appealing, but he frequently stops mid-sentence to find his place on whatever he's reading from. Compared to the Network+ series, the Security+ recording is not very engaging.
As far as actual content the audiobook does a fine job of outlining important subjects presented on the exam.
