Hey all,

Took my first ever cert test and passed Security+ with a score of 874! For this exam I used the Sybex, Syngress, Techexams and Certguide books. I was actually surprised I did so well. Only about 10 questions on the test I recognized from Practice questions that I had found. The majority of the test seemed concerned with what I would do in a certain situation. Unlike what other people have said as well, there were very few port related questions. From what I can recall there were alot of questions about CIA, hashing, access control models, , SSL, IDS, auditing and network devices. As long as you have studied the basic concepts and use common sense it all seems to work out in the end.

Ugh, now to get started on my other certs..... A+, Network+, MSCA, CCNA....who knows when I'll ever finish.

    I'm going for my Network+ next. I've taken CCNA classes already so I figure I should already know alot of what to study. Just happy I don't need such a high mark to pass it.

    Also for the Security+ exam I remembered that there were a few questions on risk assessment, kerberos and ipsec.

    Were the questions exactly the same?

    The questions were worded slightly different. As long as you re-read every question and take your time you should do fine.
