 SYO-501 May 19, 2020  Passed 

SYO-601 November 21, 2020  Passed. 

I found the exam to be more challenging than SYO-501.   No prep  just sat to see how the exam was .  All in all a fun  experience. 

Nothing to write home about. I took the exam more for the experience.

    Congrats on the pass. I updated my SYS-501 from 401 via open book test. Was there an option for SYS-601 to do that?

    I had no idea you could test for a comptia exam open book.  Sounds like something  unethical.

     Are we talking about the CompTIA Security+ exam? The exam designation is "SY0-" and not "SYS-". There are no CompTIA open-book exams.

    I took it just for fun and to see how much more difficult i felt it was.  Good to know exactly where you are at.
