Passed today with an 845!!!!!

Used Darril Gibson book. Also, have really tried to understand crypto over the past several years, rather than just memorizing things.

I got to point I just didn't want to study anymore. I finally flipped thru book and tried to focus on what I had more trouble understanding. Book is very well written and was a good review which gave me a better big picture about somethings in security.

    Nice job - I'm using the study guide by Emmet Dulaney (4th Edition) and so far cryptography is my weakest section (currently getting around 80% of the practice questions for that section correct) Luckily my exam date isn't until the beginning of February icon_wink.gif

    Around what percentage of the total number of questions were related to cryptography would you say?

    You can find the exact number of the percentage of cryptography off of CompTIA's site under the Security+ objectives. Whatever the percentage is will be the amount of questions (since the exam is 100 questions in total... :) ).

    Don't overthink it. It is not like a Microsoft exam. The questions are straightforward. If you understand the cryptology subjects covered in the objectives along with their main characteristics, you should
    be good to go.

    Good score! Seems like Darril's book is the gold standard for this exam.
