Not too long ago there were posts almost every day that someone passed the Security + Exam. What's going on out there? I have been busy studying, anyone passed the Sec+ recently? Any insight on the questions you've seen on the exam? icon_cool.gif

    I will be taking mine later in February, it was the soonest I could schedule it in my area icon_mad.gif

    I finished Darril Gibson's book in a couple weeks of light reading...got a 80/100 on the pretest, missed 1 on average for the chapter tests, then 93/100 on the final test so I feel pretty confident, just wish I could knock it out sooner!

    On a side note, @Darril I enjoyed the book. It was a good read and had a few topics new to me as a systems administrator, but a lot of it was good review for the exam format. I spent the most time on the crypto chapter but I feel much better about it now!

    Insight for questions? If Darril said "Study this" It's a good point to study that thing he pointed out in the book... Like ports. Every. Certification. Ports!

    The book is rather outstanding in terms of delivery of the material, as well as the studying for the certification.

    I took the exam yesterday and passed with an 812. I watched the Professor Messer videos while waiting for Darril's book to arrive and then read his book 1 chapter a day. After that, I waited a few days and then went back and reviewed the "Remember This" blurbs in the book and read the individual sections I felt I needed a bit more comprehension.

    Definitely memorize your ports. Those are cut-and-dry questions you will just be throwing away if you have to guess.

    Agreed. The ports are a big part of the test (at least the test that I took) but nothing that you can't handle...I know I'm not supposed to give away the farm because I had a look at the exam but I can say that if you have Darril's book and study the ports (on page 148, I believe or around there) and know the protocols you'll be golden come exam time. There's a handful of questions that you'll need to know your ports, but don't sweat it...if you study, you'll pass.
