    Default Could really use some help finding good study material for CAS-001

    I took exam and failed. Not sure by how much. Pass/Fail does not tell you much. Used the sybex book and Fed/VTE video course. My thought is I rushed it. I only had 12 days to study for it because I found a discount exam voucher for $225. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Not a fun one to fail. I usually have good luck with CompTIA exams. (now 10/12 Pass).

    Why not take the 002 in early 2015?

    I have considered that, but I have 2 books already and access to the FedVTE video series. Probably have to read the McGraw Hill book (didn't get a chance on the first try). I may go that route though. Interested to see what the differences are in the objectives for the new test. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Are they changing the CASP exam in 2015? It does need some work.

    Run through the labs in the Sybex book and get to know the tools.

    Good Luck!!!

    1/15/15 is supposed to be the official date from Comptia.

    However, I've been given a date of 11/30/14.

    Got this from the CompTIA site

    Test Details


    Exam Code CAS-001 CAS-002
    Availability Available now until May 2015 Launches January 20, 2015
    Number of Questions 80 (Maximum)
    Type of questions Multiple choice and performance-based
    Length of Test 165 minutes
    Passing score Pass/Fail only. No scaled score.
    Recommended experience 10 years experience in IT administration, including at least 5 years of hands-on technical security experience

    I'm going to give it another try soon. Probably the end of January. I am trying to get my Linux+ out of the way before they change the objectives (I think Jan 13, 2015).
    Thanks for the input!

    I checked it as well. I think it may be the expiration of the voucher and not the exam.

    I had a problem with a couple of the simulations because they were not correct.

    I'm new to the site and the admin hasn't enabled the PM for me yet. I have sent an email requesting him to enable it.
