    Default Passed 210-250 (SECFND)

    Figured I'd give this exam a bit of a review since I couldn't find a lot on it.

    I passed with a score of 951. The exam is pretty straight forward if you have the networking fundamentals and security fundamentals down. If you're doing the scholarship then, depending on your experience, I would suggest making some handwritten notes whilst going through the online course. I made some notes and then reviewed them the morning before the exam.

    Also, everything you need to pass is in the online course. Just make sure you understand the concepts behind the practice questions and answers.

    If you aren't doing the scholarship then I'd run through the exam domains and ensure you're familiar. Even if the answer isn't obvious, I found I could isolate it through common sense and an understanding of the fundamentals/concepts.

    Hope that helps!

    That gives me some hope. How do you feel about SECOPS so far?

    I am studying now for SECFND and making some mind maps during the scholarship videos. But, could you please share some photos or so of your notes?

    Thanks

    I'm really enjoying it so far. There's a bit more in SECOPS, but it's about applying the concepts you went over in SECFND. So, in the first module you learn about the technology, concepts, what everything is etc. In SECOPS it's about how these technologies can be used in a cyber operations environment. Hope that makes sense.

    Hey, my notes are all handwritten so they're messy. They're not super complicated, all I'm doing is reading the sections and making a note of important points. It's usually pretty obvious what important points are because they're either asked in the section questions, or Cisco have made headings and listed various things out etc. For example: I would have made a note on the attack continuum and what each stage consists of. Each stage is a heading and I've bullet pointed the activities underneath.

    I'm ensuring my notes are detailed enough, so I can study my notes rather than the course before the second exam (in case I don't take my exam before I lose access to the online course)

    Any comparison to CEH and security +? Curious if a tenured professional could knock out the first exam without studying.

    Congrats thats awesome! I'm in the 2nd cohort.

    As far as depth of knowledge, are the questions pretty broad? I feel like I may be overstudying because I'm having trouble sticking to their suggested timeline. Would you say scoring bronze or silver in the challenge tests a good indicator of success on the certification exam or do you think scoring gold and additional studying is required?
