Security + question

usagent27usagent27 Member Posts: 119
ok i have both the MTA and Security exam scheduled for Monday and i'm in the home stretch of studying. I have been using Darril Gibson's books. My question is how accurate is Ucertify for the types of questions on both exams? i plan to use that as a final check.

    Sounds like you might be looking for something with 'answers' rather than something that will help you become a better tech? Why do you need 'accuracy'? If the materials you used to prepare match the content on the exam objectives, you are likely ready.

    Sybex has a great text for Sec+. Be familiar with the terms on from the objectives and you should be all set.
    How much experience do you have working with the topics covered in the objectives?

    i'm looking for accuracy to make sure all of the exam topics are covered. I used Ucertify for the MTA Networks and it was fine but i found for the N+ it wasn't as spot on. Hence the question.

    again to make this perfectly clear Plantwiz i am not looking for answers but the best way to test the knowledge that i have gained from studying.

    thank you

    No worries.

    If you can explain the topics on the objectives easily. You are ready.
