Failed Security+ 401

ZzLuLzZzLuLz Member Posts: 29 ■□□□□□□□□□
Well after a month of study I've failed the exam and lost $300. I thought it wouldn't be that hard seeing that alot of people pass their first time. For my study material I used ITPro.TV and Professor Messer study notes. Honestly I'm thinking about paying for another voucher and take it this Friday since I only failed by 20 points. Any thoughts?

    Sorry to hear that. I think a month of studying is not enough. I remember studying 4-5 month for Security+ exam.

    Heavily suggest you use Darril Gibson's Security+ book, along with a good set of practice questions. Maybe go over Professor Messer's videos again on 1.25x speed - I picked up a lot of stuff I missed or had forgotten after watching them twice.

    Best of luck!

    I highly tout Gibson's book as well. I failed the first time and after getting Gibson's book and resources, my score went up 200 points.
