Review of How to Cheat at Securing a Wireless Network Posted

Amazon.com just posted my three star review of How to Cheat at Securing a Wireless Network. From cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 review:

How to Cheat at Securing a Wireless Network (HTCASAWN) seemed to have a lot of promise. A quick initial look showed discussions of wireless VLANs, WPA, and command syntax for Cisco gear. I thought this would be a good book to read and review, since I try to avoid reading and reviewing books I won't find useful. About halfway through HTCASAWN I made a sad discovery: 7 of 12 chapters are duplicates of chapters from books published in 2001 and 2002, and an eighth chapter largely duplicates a book from 2004. What would probably have been a 4 star review immediately became a tenuous 3 star review, thanks to apparently verbatum reprinting of old material.

This book should probably be called How to Cheat at Writing a Book About Securing a Wireless Network. :(

Don't cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y know to raise cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 standard?

Having content from ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r books may not necessarily be a bad thing. Like many things it depends. If cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 content were current and relevant to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 subject of a book, I might find it useful to have it all in one place racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r than have to open / remember / search several books.

However, information on wireless from 2001 - 2002 may very well be useless since cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 technology has changed quite a bit.

It bocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs me that Syngress continues to do this without at least notifying cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 buyer that it has happened. I buy WAY to many books, ask my wife, and I have pretty much stopped buying any Syngress books unless I am buying it used. I just got tired of buying a book, getting part way through and rereading cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 book I read last month.
