    "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    "Out of Date, but good foundation"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 If you are studying for the test, do not rely only on this book, as it is out of date, and only meant to be supplimental.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

    "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.

    "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.

    "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

    "A lot of great information, very fast"

    This book attempts to cover an extremely large topic in a short amount of time and succeeds in getting that information out. However I think this lacked a good amount of context to the information being presented along with examples to help the listener understand the material.

    "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.

    "a definition review"

    as far as a book on tape, I would use this as a review to listen to two or three times to make sure you are exposed to these definitions.
