Hello all, I passed the Sec+ SY0-301 last week. 860/900 I studied with the Darril Gibson book and the SY0-301 Sec+ Cert guide. Both these books are excellent and easy to understand. Did all questions in both books and purchased premium digital content from Pearson. 70% off coupon in book sleeve. If you use these two books to study you just can't fail. Good luck to all of you! Michael Note: I enrolled at WGU after reading a lot of good posts on this forum. I start Jan. 1. You all have inspired me to learn learn learn. Hopefully I will get a job in the tech field someday. Thanks everyone!

    Congrats on the pass! I think you listed the exam code for Net+ though :)

    If you don't start til Jan.1 you have A LOT of time to do self learning. I don't know if you have any transfer credits, but if you spent the next 4.5months learning on your own you could really fly through the program once you start.

    Test number fixed. Thanks kgb. About WGU, I will get credit for the Comptia Certs and some of the classes will be waived. I'm not sure which yet. I am anxious to get started, I just have to get some vacation time out of the way first. I'm not sure if I will be able to "fly through" but we'll see. Good job on your progress!! Any tips for WGU ? thanks kgb

    Congrats on the Pass! I really need to regain my focus on this. I read the book a couple months ago but got a new job and lost focus. Time to regrind on the questions from the book again.

    Outstanding! I have Security + next term. I understand a lot of the questions/topics in Net+ prepare you for the Security +. At least I hope so. Best of luck to you in WGU!
