Took Security+ and made a 730.
I took the exam (August 1st) and made a 730. I am not going to put my head down in shame. I am going to do better next time. I was probably a couple questions away from passing the certification exam. I had questions like RAID. The questions will vary. The material I used was fantastic. What tripped me up because I didn't put too much effort into this when I was studying (there is so many things to look at). I did look at the BYOD concerns, but I also overlooked that. I also think I missed a simple question to, but I am glad I went back when I had a little time left because that 730 could have been 700 if I didn't change a couple answers for all I know. The material I used was Pearson's Certification book from David L. Prowse. I recommend the hard book to because there is a dvd that you can put into your computer that has the simulations if you want to practice them. But know your RAID levels inside and outside. I can be a pessimistic person and say I made a 730 and wasted over $300, so I am not going to pay to take it again or I can take it again and pass, but pass when I am ready to take it at my own pace. I am doing what I was doing before in addition to looking over the exam objective and having Professor Messer guide me through on youtube. I am still reading David L. Prowse's book because I want to make sure I can retain everything I know and I also want to see if something comes up on the exam objective not only do I turn to Professor Messer, but I can look at the e-version of Prowse's book on my android and search for a word like "credential management" for example and see what pops up. I agree that the questions from how I interpreted them were scenarios. There was one I did go back and I had right, but I changed it. The other ones I changed I had wrong at first, so I don't regret it too much, but wow. But I know some I got wrong that I didn't change either, but that is good use because I can study that. And I looked a little at Gibson and heard he is great. There is so much material out there. It's just when I bought Prowse's book I went to town on that and read through the whole thing twice as well as did the review questions. Not to mention all the practice tests and simulations. I just think I didn't put RAID in my brain as much as I should have. Make sure you are ready before you take it and you will do great.
