Just finished off the CCNA: Security today. Soon to be embarking on my Security+ journey. I already have Darril Gibson's book, do plan on utilizing Prof. Messer's video playlist as well. That should be enough to put the nails in the coffin yeah? Let me know.

    Sounds good. Would recommend the paid content from the Gibson site.

    Yeah definitely check out Darril Gibson's blog too - Security+ Blog Links - Get Certified Get Ahead

    I think you should be in good shape to pass.

    The material for the Sec+ seems pretty simple, lots of ideas and terms I've seen before over my Net+, CCNA R&S and CCNA Sec studies.

    Hopefully I can knock it out first week of my new work schedule.

    Security+ isn't hard, but you just have to know topics a mile wide, but an inch deep. It's very general versus how specific the CCNA: Security was.

    If you are going to go through the Professor Messor route, just watch the videos on topics you don't understand. I wouldn't watch the whole series because he tends to be lengthy, but God bless him for putting out a free product.

    True. I'm covering his video material for good measure, also plan on purchasing his notes. Finished Gibson's books, averaged 90+ on the end of chapter quizzes. Going to utilize his study tests, labs, etc after finishing up with Prof. Messer's videos.


    Stay hungry out there ladies and gents.

    Finished Gibson's book and purchased Messers notes, Gibsons premium material and app for phone.


    Averaging 85-100% on his end of chapter quizzes, and application flash cards and tests.

    Do you think I'm prepared to sit for the exam? Kinda feel like some of this information is common sense.


    Also I'm too lazy to look over Messer's notes and do the premium material for Gibson's book. I'll do it if I have to ie. if the above mentioned is not enough for the exam.


    Any input is appreciated.

    Going through some of this GCGA Premium material of his, pretty good stuff. Really appreciate what guys like Darril Gibson and Prof. Messer do to help others become well informed.

    Averaged 93% on the 420 questions, finishing up this 100 question practice exam. Think I'm going to schedule the exam for this Monday.
