Passed Security+ exam today!! 862 out of 900!! I had 74 questions including 5 performance based questions that all hit me at the beginning of the exam! Definitely recommend Darrill's book, as it is such a great guide and easy to understand! I also used all the questions in the book, purchased practice exams, but I found that this forum and Darrill's blog were especially helpful! The key for me was gaining a solid understanding of the material in the book, re-review the material that I was light on, and get to the point where I was answering practice questions based on knowing why an answer was correct or incorrect instead of knowing the answer due to repetition. During the test, I took my time and read the question, then read it again, and eliminated the selections I knew couldn't possibly be the answer which left me with a better idea of what the correct answer was. Also flagged the questions I was unsure about and when I returned to them, I was able to better determine the answer. Hope my post is helpful to future test takers! Good Luck All!!
