I decided to go ahead and buy a security+ book around Christmas to study and take the test in early January. I bought the SYBEX Security+ study guide. It was a pretty comprehensive book that covered all the areas for the most part. I also poked around the proprofs.com site which had some decent study materials for the test.
If you are planning on taking this test I would suggest that you read the book cover to cover. I would also suggest you take any practice exams you can get your hands on. I ended up studying for about 2 weeks before taking the test. I had pretty good know of the basic topics that were covered for the exam, but did learn a few things by reading the book. I pass with an 860/900 and 750 being the minimum passing score. I was in there for about 40 minutes and the questions were pretty strait forward.
