    Thanks guys.

    I guess I should say some of the Q's were just basic sec questions and not necessarily cisco related. If you have a security background or have recently taken sec exams, these should be freebies for you. Goodluck

    Congrats on the pass!

    Can you send a direct link to the ASA book please? As there are now multiple versions of the ASA book.

    Thank you :)

    moldy,
    question for you, did you go through the OCG at all?
    on one of the Amazon reviews, one buyer posted that the following on the exam but not covered in any books. I checked and they don't show up on the CIsco roadmaps either. Can you verify? Thanks.

    Some of the things I noticed were tested in-depth but not covered in much detail by the Cisco Press books:
    MAC Authentication Bypass (MAB)
    AsyncOS Email Reputation actions (Defang/Redirect/Replace URL)
    Software Assurance Maturity Model (SAMM)
    ESA File Analysis/Log interpretation
    FirePOWER Preprocessors
    EAP/EAP-TLS/LEAP/PEAP/EAP-FAST
    Cisco ASA Packet Process Algorithm
    ASA Use of LDAP Attribute Maps
    ESP Packet dissection
    Cisco Context Adaptive Scanning Engine
    IP Routing Protocol-Independent Commands
    Network Device Enrollment Service (NDES)
    Cisco Web Security- Granular access controls
