Passed my Security+ 401 with a score of 784icon_cheers.gif. Not a great score but really split my time among several different things without sustained study time which I wish I didn't do but I'm not complaining I'll take the "W". I used Darril Gibson Study Guide & Mike Myers Passport series studied for about 1/2 hour each day for 4 months . I would say biggest thing is know the concept , 5 simulations right out the gate which threw me off quite a bit. Next going for the GCIH or GCIA not sure yet

    Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.

    Do you think already having CCNA helped a lot?
  • New2NetworkNew2Network Member Posts: 8 ■■■□□□□□□□
    Yes definitely one of the questions was to look at a network & figure out where the Anti Virus & firewalls go; being able to look at the network diagram & be familiar with it really helped. Also several questions about reading router logs & saying what you see helped. Don't get me wrong CCNA & security + are different but having a base in networking helped me because it gave me a starting point.
