Passed CSA+

Hey, new to these forums but thought I would post my thoughts on the CSA+ exam I recently passed with a score of 798/900
1. The exam was more difficult then I thought it would be. More difficult than the Security+ but not as difficult as the CEH. Not ashamed to say I underestimated the difficulty.
2. I think I echo other peoples comments when I say, know how to interpret logs! Probably around 60% of my questions were about reading log output. NMAP, Snort, Nessus etc...
3. Barely any questions on Architecture, Policies, SDLC
4. The simulated questions were difficult and required around 20 minutes each.
5. Know some basic Linux commands

Overall, I was pleased with the result. I reckon around 150 hours of study across a few months.

Now debating what to do next! Leaning towards CISSP or ECSA.

    I'm definitely going back and forth on this one. Hoping to take it early next year, along with CASP and CCNA Cyber OPs. Working through the Livelessons, I vacillate between "This should be no problem" and "How many attempts is this thing going to take?"
