Comptia Net vs Sec

tmtextmtex Member Posts: 326 ■■■□□□□□□□
Long story short I was able to do the CompTIA stuff for free. Class/Voucher. Did the A+ back in May sec + class ended at the end of June. Life happens and NOW I am able to go back to these. I am experienced on both sides however I will refresh/learn a lot. I need to tackle these down Sec seems easier but Net seems better with the Phone screen interview screens. Maybe I just answered my question but was wondering which weighs more ?

    You can start with Net+ first and then with Sec+.

    Why didn't you take the exam at that time after the course? Now you will have to review everything :S

    Security + is required for DOD contracts/jobs.
    I would read a Network + book; however, I would study for a certification that is vendor specific. CCNA or MCSA or ORACLE etc...

    I think it depends on what your job title is if you have to choose between the two. Overall Net+ is lower than Sec+.

    I did the CompTia trio as I call it. but I would recommend doing the net+ the sec+ and then specialize in vendor specific certs. The three from CompTia i consider them as a "base or foundation" certifications and then start specializing from there. Hence I'm doing 70-680 win 7 cert but after I'm going to spec out in windows 7 and server. Then tackle CWNP when those are done...
    Currently studying: 70-680 Windows 7: Configuring

    2017-2018 goals: 70-685, Server 2012, CWNP, SSCP and/or CCNA.
