Do you think it is possible with someone with little or no experience, study and pass security+ in two weeks?

    Yes. If you can devote hours per day and can read fast with high retention and understanding. Even easier if you have some tech experience or other certifications.
    The security+ was one of the first cert exams I took. Knew almost nothing about tech. Took me only 4 weeks. But I studied my arse off, everyday.
    Goals for 2018:
    Certs: RHCSA, LFCS: Ubuntu, CNCF CKA, CNCF CKAD | AWS Certified DevOps Engineer, AWS Solutions Architect Pro, AWS Certified Security Specialist, GCP Professional Cloud Architect
    Learn: Terraform, Kubernetes, Prometheus & Golang | Improve: Docker, Python Programming
    To-do | In Progress | Completed

    I was going to reply to this by saying "of course you can, you're an expert" then I started thinking I know that from somewhere. After a bit it came to me, it's sort of from this video. Worth a watch if you've never seen it before:

    The Security+ is an entry level exam. While it doesn't go in depth with many subjects, it is a broad exam. Is it possible? Yes. Optimal? Probably not. What is your reason behind going for the exam? Do you just need the exam or do you need to actually *know* the material?

    Yes it is possible for any comptia cert as they are all foundational certs based off your knowledge of the concepts.
