    I tried to schedule for this (UK), but no test centre can deliver it here. They should make it obvious it's US only.

    Agreed. Pass or fail for me, it was a good evaluation of skills. I have no doubt that I would be able to nail it with some targeted study materials.

    If I'm remembering correctly, they started charging $50 for the Server+ beta exam as well. Perhaps even before then. I don't like the idea of charging for a beta myself, as I did have bugs during the exam.

    For someone who's only done Security+, and who's done minimal vulnerability scanning, would those who have taken the exam say it's worth the $50?

    I mean, I guess it's worth it if you pass? This test will be a great addition to CompTIA's lineup if it takes off and gains popularity. I think it does fit nicely in between Security+ and CASP.

    Yeah, the probability of passing is what I'm trying to gauge. If there's a low to nil probability of passing, then I don't want to spend the money.

    I felt the "difficulty" was around the same as CEH (maybe a bit harder), if that helps. It did stick to the exam objectives pretty well. I felt it was very aligned with the "cybersecurity analyst" title of the certification

    I think the issue is industry acceptance and demand. Still don't see much demand for CASP. They got it thrown on the DoD 8570/8140 but outside of that, what is the ROI versus say CISSP (which are different certifications admittedly)?

    No, that's a very valid point. It all depends on marketing I suppose. We've all seen CompTIA retire exams that were outdated or not widely accepted.

    Alright, I'm going to stick with my initial gut feeling of passing this one up. I haven't done CEH or anything else besides Sec+. Also trying to focus on RHCSA studying, so probably best I not sidetrack myself.

    Best of luck to everyone who takes it.

    Booked for the 30th. I'm surprised they still have it up. I'm sure more than 400 have taken it.

    Between this thread and the other, there's at least fifty people that have taken it....... And this is just one internet forum. There's no way they haven't hit four hundred yet.

    I just took the exam this morning and felt it was awesome. Great real world hands on type of exam about what Security Analyst do. I could see it even replacing Sec+ at some point for the DoD since it aligns so well with what real world security people do. Now I have to sit and wait to see if I passed it. I had to rely on all my previous positions for the exam everything from Incident Handling, Malware remediation, Forensics, eGRC, Pen Testing and so on. Awesome exam whether I pass or not.

    I don't think it should necessarily replace Security+. Sec+ serves a different purpose. The CSA+ cert is more aligned to go up against CEH, I think.

    CASP is to government as CISSP is to private sector.

    The government wanted a CISSP equivalent certification and CompTIA delivered.

    Very few companies look for the CASP. I'm merely going for it because I work for the government.

    @PJ_Sneakers with more companies wanting people who can jump in and do the job it would not surprise me since there is no way you would be able to pass the exam without working in the field. Unless you are an expert at guessing and always being right.

    Right, well my point was that Security+ is more of a foundational certification. Cybersecurity Analyst+ is more of a specialized technical certification. They complement each other, but Security+ can complement any other technical certification in the market. Cybersecurity Analyst+ is geared towards security specialists, and that's pretty much it.

    Agree that it should not replace Sec+. Basically anyone who needs basic security knowledge can study Sec+: devs, network admins, server admins, managers, compliance, etc. The CSA+ topics cover stuff that a security practitioner, specifically an analyst must know. Bro, SNORT, OSSIM, Qualys, Burp, too much for those needing basic security knowledge.

    Took the exam this morning. I like where it is going. I am a Security Engineer so I felt comfortable with the information being asked. Some of the questions should have been broken up into two parts. The simulation, even though good for the test, felt a bit disjointed from a real type of analyst work. I really enjoyed the beta. I can see some improvement but my final assessment on it, is that this exam is designed and should be for the person who took the Security + and is very interested in becoming a security analyst. It covers the day to day and asks the person to explain how to get to a resolution quite well. I can see how folks may not feel as I do, but this test covers a good gap. The CEH in my honest opinion should pull back a little and be this type of exam. It does not make you a hacker but an analyst is more like it. I hope they really build on the feedback they get and make this exam a regular on their rotation.

    Tried to reschedule my exam today (testing center issue). It looks like all of the beta test allocations are finished.

    Good luck to all of those who have taken and awaiting their results + those who have it scheduled.

    Agreed. I just took the exam a couple minutes ago. It really does test on every day security analyst tasks. It had a lot more simulations than I had on my security+ and I found the annoying bug that others previously mentioned

    Did anyone catch this on Comptia's Website regarding the CSA+

    Coming soon! Final exam to be released in Q1 2017. The CSA+ beta exam registration is closed. If you took the beta exam, your pass/fail results will be sent directly from Pearson VUE when the exam is released in Q1 2017. Thank you for taking the beta and helping CompTIA further define IT workforce skills in security analytics.
