This site is great, I will be sticking around! I think I am going to start CCNA now.

I used:

Security+ for Dummies (loved it)

Boson Practice Questions (they were ok, lots of stuff out of the scope of Security+ though, at times I though I mistakenly purchased the Network+ questions)

This site. The technotes here are tremendous.

Many easy questions, a couple good tough ones, and a couple real 'wtf' type questions.

Don't get crazy with super technical details, just know the basics and you are good to go.

    "Don't get crazy with super technical details, just know the basics and you are good to go."

    I think I was doing fine with that until I picked up the syngress book... The syngress book is my 3rd book and while I'm on chapter 4 right now I am already noticing that this book goes into far more detail than the Sybex and Passport book I had.

    So far I am enjoying the Syngress book but it seems like a lot more to take in. I will have to keep in mind not to overload myself.

    Haha, just don't come looking for me if you happen to get a test with super technically detailed questions! :D

    Security+ for Dummies (loved it)

    Hey, thanks for the info. I have been doing system administration for about 5-6 years and leaning towards security specialization for the past 2 or so. I have a good handle on security topics and issues and a lot of experience with implementing security measures. I have had some college level courses that focus on security, been through a 10 month MCSE course, the 9 month Cisco Academy, the 1-week Security+ class at a New Horizons, 2 Symantec training classes (over $2000 per class covering AV and firewalls) and no less than 3 DoD courses that are basically IT security boot camps. However, when I pick up any Security+ book and start reading about AAA, encryption, policies, etc., I immediately begin to get drowsy and lethargic. I mean these things literally put me to sleep! Even the CBT Nuggets Security+ videos bore me to death! I am going to try the Security+ for Dummies. Those books are a little more entertaining, and hopefully my past experience will suffice to fill in the gaps that the Dummies book may leave.
    All things are possible, only believe.

    Awesome job on the pass! Did you notice many questions on TCP/UDP Ports? I'm fairly concerned about this topic.
