    Default Passed Security+!

    Hello all, I have good news. I passed my Security+ on my first try!

    I studied vigorously for about three weeks after work/school. The materials I used are as follows:

    Darril Gibson SYS 401+ = Hands down the best book I have read in regards to the SYS 401. I did skim through Mike Meyers Exam Cram and his Passport book, Darril's is well written and he breaks down what he explains in layman's terms.

    gcgapremium = Darril's website that includes performance based questions, questions included from his book in an exam simulator, flash cards, and other VERY useful tests. I bought the 60 day access for $45 even though I only used 15 days of it, it was very useful.

    ProfessorMesser Sys 401+ Cram sheet = It was a 36 page PDF document provided by my job, I think it costs about $10. I ran through this twice before taking my exam, very useful as it gets to gist of whats on the exam.

    Therefore, make sure you have a thorough knowledge of all that is in the exam objectives. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask. CCNA will be up next.
