Good last minute review
I do have real world experience and education in the field so I used this book basically as a refresher for the Network + test. The book did this job well. I read the book over and over for about 3 weeks and I feel it did a good job in getting me ready for the test. There are some typos in the books that should be corrected. This book does not cover all the questions that are on the exam. A few questions had me scratching my head. All in all I think if you either have some experience in the field or a computer educational background along with this book you should have no problem on the test. I received a 806/900 and this was the only book I used to study with.

not bad, recommended
I just sat the exam this morning and like others have said this book is all you need to pass. Don't bother over studying for this exam it's really basic, and there's better things to do in life then read an 800 page book on network+.
I gave it 4 stars because of the repetitiveness in some areas (especially chapter 7). I understand that certain facts needs to be drummed into peoples heads, but that's the job of a study guide imo. There were a few typos although minor, why do they never put an errata page url in a obvious place in these tech books?
Oh and trying to teach troubleshooting techniques is like trying to teach someone to think logically. I skipped the last chapter but I guess it needs to be there for the syllabus.
Overall it covers everything (bar 4 out of the 72 questions in the exam) you need to know so that imo is a good enough reason to buy it.

NOT everything you need
This book gives you a good foundation of knowledge for the Network+ exam, but it is definitely NOT all you need. I received some questions on topics in my actual exam that were not covered at all (not even glossed over or mentioned) in this book--thankfully I had used a second source and real-world knowledge. I also came accross a few errors in the book . . . not just typos or editing errors, but actual incorrect information. Like I said, the book will give you a good foundation for the exam, but you'd better use a second study source and/or some real-world knowledge. And DEFINITELY don't expect to be able to read this book to learn the job!
