Long time lurker, first time poster.

I passed Security+ this morning with a score of 847/900; I was nervous going into it as I'm not from the IT field. It was a little harder than I anticipated but nothing unmanageable. Like everyone says, slow down, read the question, think through it logically. There were a few completely out of left field, though, never even encountered some of the terminology in my self-study. Maybe they were beta questions?

Thanks to everyone on the forums and especially to Darril Gibson - your book was extremely helpful, easy to read and understand, concise but with enough technical details to understand the objectives. I'll join the others on here and say this is best single resource to use when preparing for the SY0-301, as it had a depth and breadth that was sometimes lacking in other books I browsed.

Resources:
- Darril Gibson's Security+ Get Certified Get Ahead (95% of my studying)
- techexams.net forums and tech notes
- CompTIA practice/sample questions
- some of CERT's VTE

Thanks again, all. Planning on pursuing Network+, SSCP, and eventually CISSP (probably in that order).
