Passed Security+

kgbkgb Posts: 380Member
Passed MTA Security Fundamentals(93%) & CompTIA Security+(872/900) this morning.
  • Darril Gibson's book: Microsoft Security Fundamentals (provided by WGU)
  • Darril Gibson's book: Security+ Guide ($10 kindle version...seriously, if you are taking the Sec+ exam there's no reason not to spend the $10 for such an incredible resource and a shout out to Darril for making it available at what I believe is the perfect price point)
  • I also purchased his "Remember This" mp3's of the security+ guide book. Listened to them while doing yard work, etc.
  • Labsim/TestOut provided by WGU (actually went through 50% of the videos, and read most of the fact sheets, did their practice test)
  • MeasureUP MTA 98-367 practice Exams
I'm definitely a visual cert fanboy. I created practice exams of all the questions from all the books.

Officially done with networking certs!

Onwards to Database Courses now.
Bachelor of Science, Information Technology (Software) - WGU
