This is a great study guide that provides you with the tools that you need to pass your exam.It is comprehensive an easy to follow.The remember this section is perfect for review the material covered.This is the must have tool for anyone preparing for the exam.
The kindle version is very hard to use.It does not have page numbers and is hard to navigate.If you must have a digital version then get the pdf version. Overall the book is good, but it is very technical.It is full of technical jargon which makes it difficult to read.
The writerof this book meant for this book to be helpful to those who are taking the security exam. It is very well written with clear and easy to follow wording that makes sense.The things to remember part of each chapter makes studying easy.
