Just passed my sec+ today with an 850.

I used Darrill's book and The exam cram study guide.
I read Darrill's all the way through and used the exam cram for
some topics that I was unsure about.

I would definitely recommend either of these books.

    Decide what to be and go be it.

    Congrats! What's next?

    Right now I'm looking at the 70-290 and then the 70-291.

    I wanna get mcsa security specialization. I'm also interested in getting CCNA certified.

    If anyone has any tips, suggestions etc. for me please feel free to let me know.

    Thanks

    Congrats on the pass! The MS press book for the 299 is pretty good.

    Congrats on the pass!
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    Congrats on the pass, nice score too!

    This will be my new section of the forums.. Just passed my net+. Gonna start my Security+ studying tomorrow (well, Saturday)!! Can't wait.

    My first trip will be to the bookstore.. So it sounds like Darrill's book is the one I should go with? I'll check it out, thanks! Anyone else have a book they consider invaluable for this exam?
    Studying CCNP Route

    Currently compiling my own home lab. I never knew scouring ebay for routers, switches, and modules could be so much fun!

    Definitely go with Darrill's book, it was my main study guide I read it cover to cover and it was a very easy book to read. All the examples and explanations were straight forward and easy to understand.

    Getting the Net+ will help you because I noticed that alot of material that I studied was included in the Sec+.
