Security+ Passed

Passed the Security+ yesterday!!! Now I can get back to work on my MS 70-680.

I used Darril's book along with LabSim to prepare for it. I had a couple of funky questions on the test, most were clear but two of them just didn't read well. One of the performance based items was a bit challenging too.

Cheers to everyone whose posts and recommendations helped point me in the right direction.

    Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

    Hi Spiko0o - I had five performance based questions on my exam. The few examples I saw before the exam were nothing like what I had on the exam.

    I would say it could definitely pay to look at log files for IPS/IDS as well as firewalls and understand to read them so that you will know how they can indicate where they failed or worked in stopping intrusions.

    There are some good resources on the performance based questions. One way to find them is to Google "security+ performance based questions"

    I've heard people had as few as two and as many ten questions. I think that when they did have as many as ten, some were beta questions and I'm not hearing people have that many lately.

    Good luck.
