Security+ passed today!!! Sooo Happy!! Great day : )
I just passed my Security+ exam today!!! 809 out of 900 I don’t know if this is a good score but I’m pleased with it. I used Darril’s book as my main study material and occasionally watched some of the Professor Messor videos. I currently work for the D.o.D. so I do many of the things outlined in the book which helped a little. I studied off and on for about two months which was too long; I found that over that amount of time (for me) I was starting to forget some of the finer details. Security+ test is based on a wealth of knowledge so there are a lot of details that matter. Like many people who took the test I got 6-7 performance questions straight away. These took the most time but flag them and go back to make sure your addressing everything being evaluated. I can’t say enough about Darril’s book, I have been on the forum a lot and sitting on the sidelines reading and watching hoping everything I read was true. I was very happy that it was. I was incredibly nervous and at times felt like I wasn’t going to pass, but there is more than enough time given which I used to go back and review all flagged questions and most others as well. Now, I’m trying to figure out what to do next, go backward and get the Network+ or forward towards Server+ or CASP any advice and help would be greatly appreciated. Darril if you reading this let me know what books your written on these topics or what you think is best and I’ll work with that. Thanks everyone for posting your result, study guides and just general advice!
