Hey guys, first post here! I've been creeping around looking for study advice. These forums recommended the Gibson book, so I bought it and read it completely in the last 2 weeks. Took my Security+ on Thursday and passed with an 841! So thanks for everyone that has ever posted links or advice here, because I probably read it lol.

Now I just have to figure out what's next. I was previously working on CCNA before taking a break, so I think I'm going to go back to that. CEH seems kind of sketchy right now, but maybe I can get my job to send me to a GSEC course! icon_cool.gif

    Thanks everyone! I used the Gibson book mostly. I read it from start to finish, taking notes along the way and doing the quizzes at the end of each chapter. I also used flash cards for port numbers and took web-based practice tests during downtime on lunch breaks at work.
