My two cents!

I just wanted to say that this is the most Boring test ever! They must have made it that way so your forced to pass it on the first try!...Well I'm on chapter 7 of the Sybex book, hopefully I can finish it by next week. It also helps when you have contractors that need an escort when they run fiber...nothing else to do but read, nod out wake up read again nod out....

    chapter 7 is pretty boring. If im not mistaken its the cryptography section. I decided to take a whole day dedicated to that chapter.

    whats wrong with forcing you to pass on the first try anyway? icon_wink.gif icon_lol.gif

    In my opinion the Syngress books makes studying for the exam more fun.

    Only by laughing at the worthless DVD that comes with it. icon_lol.gif

    Shush Sprky! It's a quality product! Oh wait, you said the DVD. Yeah, ok, I apologize. icon_twisted.gif Joking aside michael_knight, if you really can't make it through the sybex, I'd suggest reading the syngress book. The material is still dry (no getting around that unfortunately) but at least the author's writing tone is semi-conversational vs. technical manual.

    I must admit, I had a lot of fun studying for this certification. There is so much to learn about in regards to security. This is just the "tip of the iceberg"! :D

    I may try it out, I find that I need to read two books anyway for the info to set in for me. I wish I had one of those photographic memories! LOL when I was doing my CCNA I would go to the CCNA forum and some of those guys would be like "Hey I scored a 900 on my first try" LOL I would be pissed cause I took the test multiple times. Security+ although boring at times is still cool though. I feel like a med school student that diagnoses his friends... "Oh I see the problem here...looks like you have a worm...how do you fix it? I don't know I just diagnose!

    I spent about 4 hours in the car yesterday listening to the PrepLogic cd for the sec+. It got a little boring after awhile. The alphabet soup of acronyms gets old fast.
