Hello,

I passed Security+ today after almost 4 weeks of study. I used the CBT nugget video series by Keith Barker and Darril Gibson’s online ‘full access’ study package. The video course was pretty good. I cannot speak highly enough of Darril’s online study package. If you’re on the fence, buy it. Darril’s questions were extremely relevant to the exam.
