    There's no specific requirement that you have experience, just a recommendation. It's also recommended that you have your A+ and Net+ first as the tests tend to build off of each other a lot.
    It is highly recommended that you study the material for the test. Go to www.comptia.org and get a download of the exam objectives and get a good book. This book Amazon.com: CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-201 Study Guide (9781439236369): Darril Gibson: Books is one of the best you can find.
    Good luck in your studies.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    I whole heartedly agree. I watched the Nuggets for this exam and read Darill's book front to back and Darill's book definitely takes the cake.

    I didn't know about Darrils book before I took the exam. The Sybex study guide was ok and then with Labsim/testout thrown in I squeezed out an 855

    As others have said, anyone can take the test. If you are just entering IT, this shouldn't be your first stop. Usually people go A+, Net+, Sec+, as they build on each other.
    Decide what to be and go be it.

    I took it and passed without much issue and I didn't have much experience in the Security realm. I did have a lot in the IT industry though.

    DO study... and use Darril Gibson's book... Get Certified Get Ahead.

    .. and do some research on your own. Darrils book is good but to me there needs to be more real world examples. I'm taking this on the 10th (I hope) and I will make my notes available sometime soon.
