    Default Study material for CSA+

    Im thinking about to take the cert in April/may, however it doesn't seem to find any study material available just yet, so i have to find materials elsewhere, anybody who can give any good tip? (perhaps to early)

    I would wait a year to take this CSA+ exam & wait for v2 to come out. Seems to me that 1st edition exams always need improvements. Go after the CASP instead since you already have Sec+
    2018 goals -> PenTest+ Beta (awaiting results), CEH (Oct), Linux+ 103 (Dec)
    2019 goals -> Linux+ 104 (Feb)

    I wouldn't wait for a version 2 of this exam to come out....that could be years.

    There are two cert guides due out in April/May. I reviewed some CEH material before I took the beta. Now, it didn't match the CSA subject matter exactly, but there was some crossover in the CEH objectives that helped in the pursuit of the certification. I mean Snort is Snort, Wireshark analysis is similar, etc. whether you are doing CEH or CSA. If you have taken Security+ that helps as well.

    While studying for the CASP I took the CSA+ beta exam in Aug and I used a UDEMY class (Ethical Hacking from Scratch to Advanced Technique) as study material for the exam. There were many questions that I was able to answer due to what I learned in the class other information was crossover from things I read in the CASP book. If I were preparing for the exam now with time to study I would still do the UDEMY class, probably take some study materials from cybrary.it and by the time both of those were complete the study guide should be released.

    GTSLearning seems to be the official partner for CompTIA certs. Never used before. Considering doing the CSA+. You can get the printed textbook plus I believe 1 year online (guessing lab) access for $140. Seems very reasonable and I'll spring for this if I decide on this cert. Wish there was more feedback/review on the course quality though.

    I'm trying to see if I should consider the CSA+ certification rather than the CEH. Yes it is new, but after researching and learning what I can about the new exam and the fact that it has the same name as a common job title "cybersecurity analyst," I'm seeking advice. Only thing I've been able to find, other than what's posted here, is stuff provided on a blog post at Time to Tackle CompTIA’s CSA+ Certification (CS0-001) | Steve's Certification Site

    Thoughts... Jeff

    Has anyone else pre-ordered the Wiley CSA+ book? Will be officially released on Monday and I am eagerly waiting for my pre-ordered book to show up later this week.

    Has anyone found any excellent study material for the CSA+?

    I just received my Security+ today. I think the key for me to pass the Security+ was the book that I used by Darril Gibson. I had previously ordered a book by Mike Chapple and David Seidl for the CSA+, but just from reading the first chapter and doing the questions, I think the book possibly still needs some updates to it as some of the answers were conflicting.

    Default What is the best study material for the CSA+???

    What is the best study material for the CSA+? I am new to security, and debating on which material to study.

    I bought the Wiley CSA+ book, but I ran across some information that was conflicting in the first chapter content and review questions. So I returned the book.

    I have ordered the Troy McMillan CSA+ book, but I am unsure if it is enough to properly prepare me for this exam.

    I am now looking into the GTS learning and Ucertify material on the CSA+.

    Can anyone tell me what material they used to pass this exam especially if they are a green horn with none to little security experience?

    Thanks.

    Well, I would go for uCertify study material for the CSA+ certification exam. Its courses cover all the objectives of the certification exam and provide hands-on learning experience through versatile labs.
