Anyone else prepping for their Security+ exam?

I got mine in 4 weeks. I couldn't book it earlier due to a project at work which requires a lot of my attention so I couldn't get the time off.

I feel like I'm ready now as I have done many practice tests, including MeasureUps, and been scoring 80-90%. I keep going over my notes from the Professor Messer videos and marked off each topic in the CompTIA objectives.

I'm keeping my studying going so I don't lose information but I'm getting bored of it. Anyone else got their exam coming/already done their Sec+ exam who found any additional resources I can use? I have a live study group with PM on the 18th. Anyone else know of any study groups or wants to start one?

    I used Darril Gibson's book and the Prof Messer videos to pass the Security+. Between those two resources you should do fine.

    Thanks to Professor Messer I passed on the first try. I listened to him and read the sybex book. I would also reccomend downloading an app and using flash cards as well...

    I have my exam schedule for Sunday.

    1) I read Gibson's book.
    2) Acronyms
    3) Prof. Messer Videos.
    4) Ports
    5) revisit Gibson Book summaries
    6) Practice exams anywhere I can find them. (mobile app, getcertified, gibson book, techexams)

    I'm so far up to number 3, going through all his videos now. I'm worried, because I completed Gibson's book three weeks ago and had to work a few shifts to save money for the exam.

    I wish you good luck on your exam.

    Good luck with your exam! It would be good to hear how you did and what was expected?
