Starting Security+

txraider09txraider09 Member Posts: 69 ■■□□□□□□□□
So I have decided to take a small break from CCNP studies and go for Security+. Has anyone gone back for Security+ after receiving a CCNA. Any advice? Looks like most people have been using Darril Gibsons book.

    Sybex is one of the best texts on the he market. However, with experience, you may be fine with the objectives and a cram book. Yes, some do it, but why go backward? Unless you need the specific endorsement, I would consider staying on the track you were on, or picking up a a degree to round out your base knowledge.

    It's more for keeping my options open for a DoD contract.

    Yes, that is one reason folks here have taken it. So, it can make sense. It is likely you have covered a good portion of the topics under Sec+ already, so I would first download a copy of the objectives (they are free with a sign -up) and assess how easy or difficult those seem to you. On CompTIA's site! you can see sample questions to get a feel what to expect. If you have large gaps in your knowledge, then I would set aside a bit more time to prepare. If you think the material is old hat, then perhaps a crambook and some web review will suffice.

    CompTIA exams are straight-forward. No tricks, though some dislike the wording. Be ready for some scenario type questions, but nothing will be too strenuous.
