    i think so, i have used the exam cram books for comptia exams and the "**** sheet" they provide is an excellent resource, giving you a very nice overview of all the objectives, with a small summary of each section, and explanation along with "highlighted" details of each section.

    I found it really helpful on the A+, but for Network+, used nothing but Professer Messer videos and did just fine.

    Good is relative.

    They are just fine if you need a review text. If you need to learn the material, it could be a starting point, but not ideal as a complete reference text (hence the title "cram").

    So, will this be a good text for you or not? depends on your current level of knowledge.

    For someone who is just starting out and has no knowledge, how are those books? Would you recommend some other books?

    Mike Myers book is a great resource. Although, I will personally be using the exam cram book as I have some experience now in the networking side of things.

    Goodluck with studies my friend!

    Again, it depends.

    Go to a bookstore and you will likely see a copy on the shelve. It's a good text for review. You may find it helpful as a starting point. Meyers and Sybex are larger texts and packed full of information. Though nothing beats getting some experience and that may include setting up a lab for yourself to practice or at least get a real feel for the materials that are being described.

    The books do not cost that much. Buy a copy if you'd like. It is not as though it will be a bad investment...you are investing in yourself.

    Exam Cram is the shorter, concise review text. The Exam Guide series is the overall, bigger text that covers more.
