Passed Sec+ with 770 (pass is a pass) and I just wanted share what I used to prepare for the exam.

Watched CBT Nuggets
Read CompTIA Security+ SY0-401 Cert Guide (Prowse) and
CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-401 Study Guide (Gibson)

Did all the paper practice exams for both books (and also used Pearson testing software that came with Prowse book)
Also used the Kaplan/Transcender practice exams that come with CBT (however I didnt really like those)

Studied for about 2.5 weeks

I have CCNA R/S and Network+ so a lot of topics were familiar. So someone starting from scratch may want to add additional resources to prep. Good Luck!
