Survived the Sy0-401!

Passed the Security+ syo-401 on June 21 with a 784/900

Not a terribly difficult exam if you know the material.

The toughest part IMO is deciphering the questions.
Got a good mix of most of the objectives.
PBQs were easy, think I had 3.

Study resources:
Darril Gibson book, app, and premium content.
Cbt nuggets
Kaplan/Transcender, Boson, Mike Meyers Udemy tests.

I felt overprepared on the material/objectives, but I think the trickiness of the questions resulted in a score lower than what I was expecting.

    Congrats! I think that's what will be tripping me up to. It's like I know the answer but when they really try to trick you with their wording. It's brutal.
