Well it wasn't what I expected....I thought it would be harder.

Maybe it was the exam I got but I had very little "hands-on" type questions. I did like the interactive questions and hope to see more on other CompTIA exams.

    Congrats on the pass. If you taken the Sec +, which do you think is harder. If you have not, what topics does it cover (Cloud, encryption, etc?)

    It was definatly harder then Sec+, atleast the 201 which I took. It was like Sec+ meets Project+.

    Not sure if it will suit my needs but it was a free voucher.

    Seems like you are really focusing on security. Nice work!

    I was talking to an employee from our ISO department just the other day and he mentioned he had his CASP as well. I found out he had Security + and the CASP.

    I mentioned the CISSP and he said he no plans to take it. (Even more interesting)

    What do you mean by interactive questions? Not asking you to break the NDA, just curious if you mean drag-and-drop or...

    Now that is interesting. I didn't realize that the CASP could have simulations. I just figured it was another multiple choice test like the Sec+ only harder.

    What study material did you use?

    Sybex book and the CISSP/SSCP and CEH guides from Preplogic. Figured why not on the guides since they had the $1 guide sale.

    I only used them as reference since there isn't much out for CASP. I would not put CASP in the same league as the CISSP or SSCP but would recommend it as a stepping stone since a lot of the information seems to have come from the CISSP.
