Just got home from taking the exam. Passed with a 769. Only had 3 simulations and a total of 86 questions. I find it interesting that my exam consisted mostly of troubleshooting scenarios and not as much of the nitty gritty I spent so much time studying for. As many others have noted, some questions seem to have multiple correct answers but only one is the best answer for the scenario, even if it is not in accordance with industry best practices. Read the questions twice - they will provide irrelevant information to throw you off. You MUST understand the concepts before you are ready to take the exam. Out of the 5 certifications I currently have, this was by far the most difficult exam (SSCP, ITIL, CEH, A+, N+).

Materials:

WGU - uCertify Course
Professor Messer Videos
Lynda.com Videos and Practice Tests
Mike Meyers Network + iOS App
Darryl Gibson Network + iOS App
Google

Good luck everyone!

    For the CEH did you need previous field experience or someone to vouch for you in order to take it? Not too surprised that the N+ was harder than the other exams. Everyone has been saying the same thing lately.

    Hi Fayz - To answer your question, yes. You need 2+ years of InfoSec experience or closely related. EC Council actually reached out to my supervisor to verify employment and to vouch for my length of time in InfoSec. If you don't have the experience, you gotta shell out some dough for the EC Council CEH course. Good luck!
