I just wanted to drop a line to Mr. Gibson to let him know that I successfully passed my Security+ yesterday on the first try, thanks to his wonderful guidebook. I wanted to let him know that I greatly enjoyed his writing and thoroughly enjoyed reading the book, not just as excellent preparation for the test but also as an interesting and fun read. His examples and real-life stories really helped me digest important concepts, and he compartmentalized and presented complex information in ways that were much clearer and easier to remember than some other formats I have used. I was much better able to remember the statistics for cryptography algorithms, for example, because of the way he lumped them together by block size than if they had just been all shown in a table. His grouping and presentation of information throughout the entire book were excellent in this way, and this made retaining a lot of information much, much easier. Please extend my sincere thanks to him for helping me get certified and get ahead!
