Is Gibson's ports & protocols table enough?

Hope I'm not asking anyone to violate the NDA here, but Darril Gibson is pretty explicit about saying his table can be used "as a single source" to memorize all the ports and protocols (p. 150, GCGA SY0-401).

I've recently come across a few other sources--even a practice exam--that name ports outside that table.

I suspect Gibson is enough, but I'd just like confirmation, if anyone knows.

    I ran across this on Cisco CyberOps FB group
    2018 goals -> PenTest+ Beta (failed), Linux+ Beta (pending results), CEH (mid Dec)
    2019 goals -> Linux+ 103/104 (Jan/Mar/Depends on Beta results), KLCP (June), RHCSA (Dec)

    Thanks, @shochan. These can't all be on Security+, though, right? Surely I don't have to memorize the port for BackupExec? :)

    Thanks for that Shochan, very useful document. I have been looking for one similar to that for a long time!

    Gibson's is perfectly fine. Don't panic "D

    The Security+ Exam objectives only cover ports 21, 22, 25, 53, 80, 110, 139, 143, 443, and 3389. You'll definitely want to know many more if you're taking the other CompTIA exams and you'll definitely want to know more for your IT career in general, but only these few are needed for the exam itself.
    Desired certs: Security+, Linux+, CCNA, MCSA Server 2016

    Gibson’s is the only source book I used for getting the Security+ certification, so I think it is good enough.

    His online performance tests had a questions that included IPSEC AH (port 51) ESP (50) and GRE (47). These three were barely touched on in the book on page 140. Not sure they are mentioned on the actual exam of course, but he at least has a question on them.
