Just passed Security+ exam people! 848/900. YESSSSSSSSS!

My advice is Darril Gibson book and practice test at It's an authorised CompTia partner. I also used CBT nuggets but Darrils book was more than enough!

Exam not as hard.

I thought i would fail because I was only averaging 60% or so on the measure up tests so if you get as much as that or more, your sorted!

Know what appears on the objectives!

    Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.

    to be honest I just used CBT nuggets and my course tutor. He also provided an excellent exam simulator.

    My advice for the exam would be to know your nmap commands and wireshark!

    Know your ports, practice the simulations.....and read the questions.

    I cant remember the question now but basically there were 2 answers that would have been right. The answer was the software based answer, but there was exactly the same answer but for hardware.

    But as the question had the word 'software' in it, i chose the software based answer. So READ the questions! was REALLY good exam practice, id defo recommend do it.
