Goes through the five main sections in order and has reasonable detail. However, this should be combined with other resources if you want to pass the Security+ Exam.

For Security+ testing software, I would recommend PrepLogic and MeasureUp. PrepLogic on some weeks of the year will have a promo for a free exam voucher if you purchase the associated testing software (Highly recommended for savings).

I found Gregory White's Security+ A-I-O Exam Guide to be a good resource for studying for the CompTIA Security+ exam. I used this book along with on the job experience (I also have a SANS/GIAC security cert) to prepare for and pass the test. No Sec+ study book out there seems to cover EVERYTHING, but I thought this book did a good job of covering most things. I would recommend an additional study resource but if I could only have one book, of the ones I've seen, I would pick this one. The test engine that comes on the CD is OK, but nothing great. I would recommend something like Transcender or Boson (the Boson practice exam I used was quite good and fairly cheap at $40) for a more accurate gauge of how'll you do on the test. Also, look for an exam voucher online for the Security+ test. The normal price is $225 but you should be able to get a voucher for around $165.

Among the many laughable errors in the Security+ All-in-One Exam Guide, my favorite comes in chapter 18, on risk managment. It comes on page 488, in figure 18-7, where we are trying to calculate which security problems are most important to fix. "Cost to fix" and "difficulty to fix" should _subtract_ from the total score for a problem, not add to it, since the more expensive or difficult a problem is to fix, the _less_ likely it makes economic sense to fix it. That an error as fundamental as this could slip by shows how poorly this book was edited.
All in all, this is a disastrously bad book. To some degree, too many cooks have spoiled the soup (the book has several co-authors, and they seem not to have read each others' contributions). There's an immense amount of duplication of material, while at the same time there are many terms and concepts that are invoked without ever being defined. At the least, this book should state that a reader needs a casual familiarity with networking (equivalent to that required by the Network+ exam, which I passed) to have any hope of understanding a good 40% of the book's material.
The only valuable chapters are the ones on security baselines (specifically the info on operating system and application hardening), cryptography (though much of the math used there is not explained), and public key infrastructures--conveniently, these are chapters 9 through 11.
Though this is the only Security+ book I have read, I feel confident in recommending any other book over it.

This book is very good and covers almost everything from comptia's objectives list in a very clear and to the point manner. This book is surely a must if you taking the exam. As the other reviewer suggests there are many questions in the exam that are not covered by any security+ book otherwise I would have rated the book with 5 stars.
Interesting Information: Exam with the voucher is (...)that one could buy from many websites compared to(...) comptia's price for the exam. Save some $$.

I BOUGHT THIS BOOK OVER A MONTH AGO AS BACKUP STUDY MATERIAL AND FOUND THAT IT PROVIDED MUCH OF THE INFORMATION THAT WAS MISSING IN THE OTHER BOOK WRITTEN BY M. PASTORE (SYBEX) I FINALLY TOOK THE TEST AND SCORED 806,
THIS BOOK WAS THE ABSOLUTE BEST FOR PREPARATION.
