Just passed Security + on my first try about an hour ago. Spent a week studying. I spent wayyy too much time on the labs. Finished the test with only 7 seconds to spare haha. Same terrible wording and sentence structure as the A+ i took back in 2010.

Hate that the Sec + is CE since my A+ is CFL.

Now I'm going to hop on my motorcycle and enjoy my weekend!

    Congrats. Can you explain the difference between CE and CFL? Oh .. does that mean certificate for life? How did you get it for life?

    Thanks! From 2011 and forward CompTIA certifications are Continuing Education (CE) which means you have to re certify every 3 years through courses or retaking the test. My A+ was before this ridiculous three-year year so it'll never expire hence Certified For Life.

    Depending on the Field/Job you are aiming for CFL may not be accepted. Anything dealing with the DoD/Gov't or a DoD contractor has to be CE

    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.
