Do we need to study these areas for the test?

    Not something I planned on covering in the Security+ TechNotes, but I guess it's something that 'could' be on the Security+ exam. Personally I wouldn't take the effort to memorize the list (the sybex book covers the same list right? or did I read it somewhere else...) but it's good to know 'of' them.

    The exam I took did not have any questions regarding those, but I suppose they could question you on it. Probably unlikely as the exam I took was more about general security knowledge, never got too specific.
    Victory belongs to the most persevering.
