    Default Save $100 on CompTIA Advanced Security Practioner (CASP) Voucher

    Just received an e-mail from CompTIA. Buy the voucher before December 17th and take the exam before December 31st.

    Use Promo Code CASP100B

    Also if you take the test before 12/31 you will be entered into a drawing for a $500 American Express card. And receive 20% off your next CompTIA purchase after you complete the CASP.

    Well it says it is a good exam for people on the CISSP track, which I am, so I will be taking this exam next month (Planning on the week before Halloween) and will post a full write up on it (without revealing any of the actual material of course).

    I would imagine really any InfoSec material will be relevant, I will be using two CISSP books to study for it, and really all it will do is kind of guage how well i am progressing towards CISSP.

    If you're interested, I did do a couple of blogs on CASP.

    Thanks for this, +1 and Rep.

    I am hoping that his SSCP guide will be equal to his Security+ book. I would want SSCP before CASP.

    I also wonder if the CASP will be lifetime or not?

    Watch yourself there. I took the Beta version of the exam and while I am still waiting for results, I can say the beta had very little crossover with the CISSP field of study. Yes they are both security exams but thats about the extent of the crossover I would give them.

    CASP is very much technololgy related
    CISSP is very much policy related

    It's not much, but I wrote ten practice test questions a while ago for the CASP exam and recently posted them in a blog. You can see them here: CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) Practice Questions

    Oh really? I passed the CISSP and thought it was too far out of touch with technology, I'm a computer guy not a policy guy. I see it's usefulness, but I really didn't enjoy studying the material. I've been looking at the CASP but am not sure if it's something I'd like to go for... if it's more technology based than theory based, I might have to put it on my short list of exams to take!
