    So here's the Section 9 sub-section topic list on Linux from the training material. Its the longest section in the entire 210-250 course training material. If you know all of these topics down to specific command lines & understanding the Linux OS, it's processes, structures & defaults, then you're golden. If not, just go through all of the training material thoroughly & you'll have what you need.

    As far as overall time for each course, I probably spent 6 to 8 hours a week doing the reading, sub-section quizzes, section quizzes & labs. And, as no one ever accused me of being particularly bright, I nonetheless, managed to score a 941 on the SECFND exam by going through the course material carefully & thoroughly.

    "9.20 Managing Services in SysV Environments" and no mention of systemd, that's weird these days...

    Actually the systemd vs init or systemd vs sysvinit coverage is buried within that subsection & other section 9 subsections. In fact, you can count on that general topic being covered in the section 9 sub-section quiz-lets, the main section 9 quiz, the section 9 labs, the exam blueprint and the 210-250 exam. Ssssooooooooo....

    I made the same score as you! 941/1000.

    Took me about 23 minutes from start to finish. I used only the cisco scholarship material.

    As usual I have this already detailed on my blog here:
    https://virtualizedcomputing.wordpre...d-exam-review/

    I plan on making it a habit of reviewing the exams I take for you guys. Because I understand people are concerned and want to prepare adequately for the exams!

    Random question: Is Stealthwatch part of the exam at all? More curious since I work with it every day.

    No they mention it as a way to handle Netflow information. For a Cisco exam it is very vendor neutral. Way more subtle about product placement then what I've seen from other Cisco exams

    TacoRocket, you're freakin killin me here brother. How the hell did you even read 65 questions in 23 minutes???
    Quadruple espressos right before the exam??? It took me 45 minutes & I thought that was way too fast.

    Of course, there is the alternate explanation that I'm just a plodding, OCD (read 'em all 3X) ridden, idiot savant....sans the savant. That's certainly a popular theory among my colleagues at work.

    Did you share the URL for your blog with the CCNA Cyber Ops study group on Facebook? That would be useful in spreading the word as that new-ish FB group already has over 3,000 members.

    And, of course, congrats (albeit tinged with some minor grudging) on your road runner (meep-meep) pass.

    I have not seen the Facebook group (I think my facebook has been deleted). I actually left from work to the test center. As far as timing goes, I think its me versus the exam. The previous I've taken have fared around the same times (CEH in around 32 minutes, GCIH 53 minutes, and SECFND at 23 minutes).

    I don't go over the training material multiple times but I do read other books on computer subjects and that might assist. For example this past week (or two) I bought 3 books from No Starch: Practical Packet Analysis 3rd edition, Black Hat Python, and Penetration Testing.

    I might start detailing the books I've read recently, not for bragging but to help disclose that I am heavily engaged in a lot of material that might overlap.

    I welcome comments or feedback for improvement. I've recently tried to break away from nothing but progress updates. I started it for me to have public accountability to get my school and certs done. Its done wonders when you cant hide it from people!

    I am doing the SEC511 class at SANS Dallas this week, hope to take the GMON in about a month. Plan on finishing the labs for SECOPS so I can take that exam, and take the ITIL because I've been slacking.

    So everything pretty much. ha!

    TacoRocket - SANS has done something similar but more focused on veterans and women. Depending on the Academy applied for, they will pay for two or three courses and exams.

    Question to the people already taking the course and tests.
    Is this like cisco network academy, pace yourself kind of thing?
    I'm set for June but I think I may be unavailable for a week or two in June...
    So I wonder if that will affect me.
    meh

    There is deadlines but you go at your own pace. You don't need to go to weekly meetings. You need to answer the questions on each page and section assessments. Then you have to attempt the labs. Once you do this, you have to call Cisco support. They will issue the voucher.

    You will probably barely need it. Good to learn though.
