5.0 out of 5 stars I PASSED USING THIS KIT! 9 April 2008
By SMcG - Published on Amazon.com
I highly recommend this kit to anyone preparing to take the Security+ exam. I did it by reading the entire Security+ Study Guide while testing myself chapter by chapter using the CDs test engine (also included on the CD is the entire book in PDF format which can be quite convenient). Then I moved onto the Fast Pass book which reinforced what I already knew from the previous book. Also included in the Fast Pass book is another CD with a test engine on it (unfortunately no pdf of the book on this one though). That's really all I did. I studied for about 8-10 hours a day for about 11 days and on day 12 took the exam and passed; I'm now a CompTIA Security+ certified IT Professional!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does The Job 19 Feb 2009
By Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just got back from my exam and passed with an 850 (out of 900 I believe). I used no other study materials other than these books and CDs, although I had some prior knowledge in the area of penetration testing (though no job experience).

My approach was this:

Read each chapter of the study guide. Do the 10 questions at the end of the chapter. If there are areas you seem to be having trouble with, go back and review them.

Read the entire review guide.

Take the assessment tests on the CDs and review weak areas until you are getting scores in the 90s.

Right before the exam, read all the "exam objectives" in the review guide and make sure you understand them (takes a little over an hour).

I never opened the Street Smarts book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the only study material you will need 19 Jun 2008
By D. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have a few certification including CompTIA A+,Network+ and Inet+. This is the first certification test I have not passed the first time. It is also the first where I only used one source for my studies. That may be my fault. I found the books in this set missed key areas I was tested on. I actually thought after taking the exam I purchased an out of date book.

I have used Sybex as one of my study guides on prior exams but in this case it was not enough. I personally think the package is great and found no errors but I do not think this series is up to par with their other Certification kits. It covers more than what is on the exam and at the same time totally misses other areas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource that helped me pass along with a few other internet study guide resources 27 April 2010
By TDR - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great study resource that helped me prepare for the exam. I would also recommend looking at the flash card resources at Flash Card Certified. They really helped while reading this book. I passed the test the first shot around so the combination of the two must have worked. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend if they were thinking about taking the exam.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just good for Certification but good for daily use as well 29 Mar 2010
By M. Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this Book Series was a great tool to study for the SY0-201 Certification test and its a valuable asset to use on a daily basis if you are in the IT field of security. I use it for just about everything around the office, i even use it to brush up on old tricks of the trade that i learned a long time ago that are now in the updated books. they are easy to read and well put together, i tend to loose interest in books after a while but i never got bored of this series. i would definately recomend this product for those trying to get into the IT field or just to brush up on security knowledge.
