I bought Darril Gibsons' Security+ Book from Amazon last night, so far it's really good, with explanations to help you understand the concepts. I got the 9.99 kindle version, which you can read on your computer with amazon's cloud reader, not bad. I haven't found the $276 for the exam yet but hoping I can register this month.

    Good luck on your studies. As long as you read the chapters, you're in good hands with that book. In regards to exam fees, if you're attending a college, you may want to inquire about a reduced price voucher through your institution. Additionally, you can find reduced price vouchers online, but be careful here... they may not be valid.

    It's also possible to find exam vouchers listed as short sale because of their upcoming expiration date. I purchased my Project+ voucher from this site, it looks like they have a few Security+ vouchers for under $230.

    That book is golden.

    And yeah, look for vouchers. I think I paid $225 when I took my S+.

    Good to hear you're enjoying the book. Amazon has some outstanding free resources for Kindle books, and most Kindle books are relatively inexpensive.

    MSP-IT has a great link for vouchers. If you check regularly, you might get a bargain. I got a great deal for a Security+ voucher a couple of years ago. I don't remember the exact price, but it was about $175 through them.

    Good luck.
