This is a fantastic book for studying to pass your Comp TIA Network+ N10-004 Exam. I have also used the study guide from the same author for the Comp TIA A+ exams and found that these guides are thorough and easy to understand. I highly recommend this guides for all Comp TIA exams.

Everything you need for the test June 2 2009
By J. Kurrle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought Todd Lammle's book and found it to be instrumental to me for passing the test. I compared his test questions against other test questions and found other tests to be using outdated questions. Some of his questions could have come directly from the Net + test, they were that close.

I found his lesson layout to be helpful, teaching you the various basics you need to know. Then building off of them to take you to the next level. There is some critical things you need to memorize and Todd tells you what you need to remember. You might not know why at the time, but you'll be glad you took the time to memorize the lists, by the next chapter or two.

I found for me, the best study technique was to sit with the book and a stack of index cards. I would make flash cards as I read each chapter. I did every exercise and worked every practice test. I would start each day retaking the previous chapter's test, to help me remember what I learned the day before. Then, I would read the next chapter, while making flash cards. Then I would do the labs and take the post chapter test. Anything I missed, I would go back and study that relevant section until I realized what I got wrong and why.

My only beef with the book is that some of the test questions got the answers wrong, they should have been better proofed. But then again, being able to tell what the correct answer was and knowing what's a wrong answer, is a testament to how good the training is.

After 3 weeks of study, I took the Net + exam. I finished the exam in less than 30 minutes, and did not even go back and review any questions. I passed the exam with 875 points out of a possible 900. I'd say that shows how good the training actually is.

Great resource for those pursuing certification June 24 2009
By midnight821 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
As someone that has read countless technical resource and exam prep books, I am used to the typical "here are facts, good luck learning them" style of writing. However, I found the CompTIA Network+ Study Guide to be a different read and in a much better way. I have been increasingly more careful giving books five stars, but I feel Lammle deserves five stars with this guide. I was impressed by the breadth of information given all while explaining details in a easy to learn (and remember) way.

I consider this edition to go beyond a mere study guide. This book can serve as a reference tool just as much and will likely stay on my bookshelf for a long time. This study guide is recommended for both those that are new to networking or those that have been in the networking/IT world and wish to finally pursue certification.

The book is well organized and provides clear explanations. Illustrations and additional tips/points are provided throughout the entire guide. If you study this book and use all of the provided material there is no doubt you will be on your way to certification. But again, keep this as a reference!

The CD included with the book is a great addition. Most technical books include some digital resources, but with this edition you get a PDF of the book. Take it with you on your mobile device, desktop or other PCs, or just keep a digital copy for quick reference at a later date. There are also some other handy digital resources including study aides and practice exams.

Excellent Study Guide for the Network+ certification June 16 2009
By B. Colonna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Going in, just let me say I tend to prefer the Transcender products. That said, I was quite pleased with the Network+ Study Guide from Sybex. At well over 700 pages, there is a lot of information provided, which also means a lot of information to be digested. The author breaks down the info extremely well, chapters are logically and appropriately divided by topic, and Mr. Lammle has a nice writing style, presenting the text in a way that makes it more pleasing to read than one might expect for a technical book.

You can use it for the certification test, of course, but I would also recommend it for someone looking to learn "Networks 101". Unlike some products, it doesn't start off assuming you already have a good deal of knowledge on the subject.

The review quizzes in the book are good and the CD study guide was helpful. It includes exams and electronic flashcards, which you can put on your PC. It also includes the entire book as a PDF file so you can take it with you and study on your laptop, on the go, etc.

The author also pinpoints some specific information you will need for the tests. If you take your time and read this and study it, you should be prepared for the test (N10-004). I would look for more titles from this author based on this book.

It worked for me; it can work for you Jan. 27 2011
By Danarchist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wanted to get a Net+ cert. for my resume and after reading the reviews on Amazon I picked this book. I have a little over a year of IT experience and don't have any other certs at the moment (A+, CCNA, etc.). Going through this book over the course of 6-8 weeks (and the study schedule was less than rigorous) prepared me very well for the Net+ exam. I'd call 881/900 a pretty decent go at it (720 is passing).

How quickly you get through the book probably depends upon previous knowledge and experience, but if you're relatively new it will cover majority of the points. If you're dedicated to learning the content, I'd advise finding resources online when you encounter tough sections, being wary that not everything on the internet is true. I used a CCNA tutorial (free, of course) online to work through some subnetting before it 'clicked'.

I'd have liked more test-like questions included on the CD and you should be aware that there are still some errors in the book and more noticeably on the CD (questions and flash cards). Some errors still don't show up on the errata section for this book on Sybex's website (which you should visit). Like others have said though, the fact that I was able to determine that there were errors speaks to 1) the book's thoroughness and 2) my thoroughness in reading the book.

Best Book for Network+ Aug. 27 2009
By Wayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is great, too bad the practice and chapter exams suck. Not only could the test engine be a lot better, there are several wrong answers in the practice exam. Whatever you do get the errata from the web page. At the last minute I panicked and bought more practice questions from somewhere else, but don't waste your time and money. Everything you need for the exam is in this book. Make sure you're getting the right book for the right exam and disregard anything else that doesn't say N10-004.

Except for the extra test questions that were useless, this book was my only resource in preparing for the exam. I passed at 92% and finished in a half hour. There were a few parts I didn't memorize enough, but the information is definitely in there and the test questions in the book were right on, I just wish there were more of them.

I'm in the process of selling my textbooks and I will probably be keeping this one. There is a ton of great information in here. The shortcut to subnetting is great and saves a ton of time on the test.

I'm sure Mr. Lammle must have access to the exams because it was like reading parts of the book in the exam, it's written well and goes from nothing to Networking. It's a tough subject and it will take effort and time to study and get through this. But this is the only book you need to pass and I like his style of presenting the information. When I go for my CCNA later on, I'm getting Mr. Lammle's book.
