The book is a great resource. I do feel it is a bit winded though. There are certain parts where they could have gotten straight to the point. Something I REALLY disliked though was that the book description mentioned there is an eBook available. However, it did not mention that the eBook is only available through their site or their eBook app (which never works for me!). I thought I was going to be able to download the book and throw it on my Kindle so I could read it during my morning commutes, but that wasn't the case. Would have rather bought the Kindle version.
Road.to sliver
This is a FANTASTIC book that covers the basics on a plethora of topics. I rented it for my semester which is over now, but I honestly want to buy it to keep it in my collection.
Needed it for class, It you don't much about security and computers its a good read. For anyone that has been in the field, look for a different book. Your better off purchasing online tutorials that are updated every so often. example would be Lynda.com and Udemy.com
Great book on Security. I needed this book for school, but would highly recommend it as it is very resourceful and applicable to the real world.
This product was well packaged and high quality. I bought it new, so it came as expected. It also came with an online access code (which I didn't actually end up needing for the class I purchased it for). Anyway, quality stuff.
Ordered from FLIPPINGPAGESBOOKS. Description said codes and other textbook materials included but there was no access code in the book. Total false advertising.
Too much useless information, that is not needed to learn the "Elementary" basics of information security.
Still a relevant book.
