Failed 720

Took the test today.

My study material
Sybex Security plus and Prep logic practice exams

In my opinion, the Sybex book covered about 30% of the exam. Prep Logic did help to enforce the concept of each area but there were questions on the exam that were not cover. I had two question on virtual servers. Not many just two.

Overall, I know I was weak on the IDS/Firewall, Auditing, and Policy concepts questions. Those are the questions that you really had to have a broad understanding on because the way the questions were worded.

I am ordering the Syngress book and will reschedule the exam in two weeks.

    Sorry to hear about that.

    Stick with it though, your almost there. You're on the right track by knowing what your weakness were on the test. You'll get it next time.

    Is that a little dyslexia? Did you think he said 270? I don't think MS Press publishes a Security+ book ;)

    Sorry to hear about the fail. I think the Syngress book will fill in any gaps you have; you are already really close. Good luck next time!

    The good ole glance-and-post strikes again.

    Thats really funny that I just did that because right after I posted the message I read a CNN article about people sending emails to the wrong people because of mistakes.

    Sorry to hear you didn't pass, I'm sure you'll get it next time.

    And, in all fairness to Mishra, there is an MS Press book for Security+. icon_wink.gif
