I purchased this set of Books and CD's as a requirement for a job I recently acquired. I thoroughly read the Study Guide, and Review Guide. Then I practiced all the chapter quizzes & sample test until I could get roughly 95% over all the questions available. I have been doing networking in the field for nearly 15 years so I had a good understanding of networking fundamentals. These books filled in a lot of blanks for my general networking knowledge. After reading, I felt I had a good grasp on the material presented. When I took the test, some questions were worded in a fashion that made little sense. I scored an 84%, and obscurely worded questions were most of the problem. So if you do the work, you can pass the test with these resources.

This kit gives you a pretty good package to prepare yourself for the Security+ exam. I wasn't sure how much I needed, any my company was paying for me to get certified, so I went with the whole kit. Honestly I only read the Study Guide and I felt like it was enough to pass the test. The CDs were helpful for going through the flash cards and taking practice tests. The format of the real exam was very similar to the practice tests on the CDs and the questions were similar. The Study Guide is a fairly big book though so if you just needed a refresher the Review Guide might be more suited for you. I never even cracked open the Administrator book. Passed the test by a safe margin just this week.
