I just found this website and Im very upset I didnt find it before I took this exam. I think the books I used sucked (Security + Fast pass, Exam Cram) cause there were many questions on the exam that I did not see/read in my books. I did exam cram questions, online practice tests and felt pretty good after the exam only to see fail.... Im not giving up, im going to retake this exam. I read some posts and saw alot of users talk about a syngress book. Can someone send me the link to the correct book/version so i can purchase it and hopefullypass this exam? Thanks in advance.

    I'm sorry to hear about the fail icon_sad.gif

    Here's the book you want: http://www.amazon.com/Security-Study-Guide-Ido-Dubrawsky/dp/1597491535/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1223907269&sr=8-6 Ignore the bad review; it has nothing to do with the book.

    You might want to check out the Transcender practice exam as well.

    Good luck on your next attempt, and welcome to the forums!

    thanks for the link. im gonna buy it today as i really dont want to much time to pass as i still have all the info i studied fresh on my mind. Any other tips to pass this exam? The transcender practice exam, is it an online thing or a book?

    Not really. Syngress and Transcender were my main sources of information. I watched cbt nuggets as well, but I don't think they'd do a lot for you at this point.

    Here's the link to Transcender: http://www.transcender.com/product.aspx?product_id=Cert-SY0-101&dept_id=110410

    It's just a standard Windows application, but you can save some money if you use the 30-day online version.

    hey dynamik do you know if there's a big difference between the book you recommended and
    the one I have "Security+ Exam JK0-010 study guide and practice by Syngress? I ordered the
    the second ed on amazon and they sent me this book instead.

    The content is identical, so it doesn't matter. One exam code is for the student/academic version and the other is for us regular people.

    ok just wanted to make sure cause the book says exam jk0-010 and not SY0 - 101.
    thanks
