841/900

Completely satisfied too. Don't wanna reveal too much without breaking rules or something. Know your MAC/DAC/RBAC. Auditing, Logging. Social Engineering. PKI. Very few real technical based stuff.

Most of the questions seemed like: "What is the BEST option?" So less fact based, and more decision based lol.

Next? 70-290, then the "beast" 70-291. (MCSA Completion confirmed?)

Think I'm done with CompTIA certs now, unless I go back for the Linux+ sometime next year or something.

Oh and as far as difficulty, it wasn't really difficult, but more so, made you use reasoning/decision making skills, than actual spewing random facts. You don't have to know Network+ or A+ material to pass the exam.

Syngress Sec+ Study Guide is probably the best material out there for it (It's a good read, ton of info). Transcender = Overkill.

I'd say with common sense knowledge, and that Syngress book you're set. But that's me. ;)

    Not sure if I want to finish the Microsoft track to MCSE, then go down the CCNA track... or get MCSA first, then CCNA.
