    Red face Passed SY0-401 Security+ !! Feeling good after long time!!

    I passed my Sec + exam on my second attempt. Having work 3 years of experience as a web developer, but no work experience in information security. I really tried hard to get a pass for this exam. It's all about how you understand the question and eliminating wrong answers first, which will help to choose right answers.

    I had six performance based question, that was super easy (4 from the book) which gives me some confidant. Some of the questions are too lengthy to read and very few are straightforward questions. Again, it's all about how you understand the concepts.Make a note for concepts that you are not thoroughly understand and keep until you are

    Remember, exam has only 90 mintues, it's better to review all attend questions before you submit.I had 72 Questions for this exam.

    Materials I used for this exam
    Darril's Gibson Book for a year and Get Certified Get Ahead Premium material.
    CBT Nuggets Video
    Professor Messer Video

    Default Set number of questions?

    It might only be me, but it appears that at least the last 5-7 people posting
    Passed Security +
    seem to all be set at 72 questions. Is CompTia not getting creative anymore with varying the amount of questions? I know of co-workers that failed with less than 70 questions, obviously believing the odds are stacked against you on fewer questions=higher weighted score per question,

    I got my cert in November ('16) and must have been one of the unlucky ones I had 10 performance based questions roughly 82 total questions. I wound up spending a lot of time on the performance questions and had to rush through the rest of the test. As that was my 2nd attempt I was VERY relieved to have passed.
