Passed SYS-201 with an 861! This site and all the contributors def helped! Main study materials were the Sybex cert kit and Exam Cram. I admit though I spent a lot of time with Google and lots of different sites to get a good understanding of some of the tougher concepts... I'm not sure what to go onto now. For this year I'd like to get another fundamental and industry 'recognized' security cert...anyone sit for the GSEC without doing the official training (too expensive)? I don't have the pro experience for my SSCP or CISSP yet (still got a year for SSCP, 4 for CISSP). I thought about the Network+ ...how much additional content/studying would be required to do well with that one? Any ideas?
