Passed CCNA:Security

Todd BurrellTodd Burrell Member Posts: 280
Passed the CCNA:Security exam yesterday with a score of 898 (right on the number). Without violating the NDA - the test had a few scenarios and 4-5 drag and drops out of the 61 questions. The rest were multiple choice of some sort. Most of the questions were based on CCP or the exam prep materials, but there were 4-5 questions that were completely out of left field. With little margin for error with the passing score I was surprised with the questions that did not seem to be in the study material.

Used the following materials in this order:

OCG - this was an excellent resource.
UDEMY Bryant videos - pretty good resource
BOSON Practice exams - not all the same material as the exam - but similar feel and look as the exam
CBTNUGGETS videos -very good
CCNA:Security Pocket Guide - great resource for cramming right before the exam

Now it's on to the CCNP.

    Congrats!!! That's up next for me (I'm doing the CCENT right now). I already have the OCG, Pocket Guide, and Bryant's videos awaiting me so good to hear about those. I also have the Cisco CCNA Security Official Lab Guide as well, and INE will have their new CCNA:S videos done in March so I'll use them as well. Common them is CCP is huge so I'll definitely focus on that.
