    I use my goodreads for myself and not as a social media item. Although I'm still reading this book, I wanted to count it finished to clear it off my "Now Reading" section. I do not want to include textbooks for school classes in my good reads. However, I will be taking a test for a security certification at the end of january/ early february. From this book, I will be memorizing the chapter questions. I have learned a little about security from this text, but I feel actually studying for the cert I use my goodreads for myself and not as a social media item.

I have learned a little about security from this text, but I feel actually studying for the certification will teach me more than what I am covering in class. As to the actual content of the textbook, it's fine. It's what it sounds like. I will say that this is the first textbook I've ever read where the author seems snarky.
