Hello everyone,

I am interested to take the security+ exam and hope to get some advice.

It seems like everyone is using the GCGA by Darril Gibson to prepare for their exam. But I am wondering if anyone has used study guide by Glen Clarke? Is this book worth of getting it?

Thank you

    Hey, I had promising results reading Gibson's book from cover to cover. The Security+ book is not bad at all and the Simpsons references really paints a vivid picture to help understand difficult concepts. I really did enjoy the Security+ book by Gibson. It's the truth! Prof. Messa video's are really good too, but I find that he goes into very finite detail. I think reading the book first and then using Prof. Messor videos to fill in the gap would be ideal.

    Good Luck,

    Thanks for the reply guys.

    I might check up Indigo to see if they have Gibson's book. But since i already have the study guide by Glen Clarke, I am wondering if it is worth of the time to study it andif it has enough information to cover the exam.

    Always best to use multiple sources for studying and not just rely on a single one.
