Did you study brands?
I'm going through some Sec+ training and the trainers are specifying different brands or names of programs, ie popular hacker tools, packet reading programs, etc. Is it recommended that I memorize these? I did take Sec+ years ago, but I don't remember if there was anything that specific or if I just needed to know the basics... ie what types of packet reading programs are out there vs the actual brands of the programs. Hopefully that question isn't breaking any rules. I am not asking for actual question examples or anything of that nature. Just, where to focus my study. I didn't notice any brands listened on the exam objectives, so would that be a good indication to not focus on memorizing that? (I work for someone who gives me no choice in programs, so I don't have a lot of motivation to memorize them for use in the, "real world," either).
