    Default Final exam on Gibsons book

    I have just finished studying the Gibsons study guide. It took me almost 1 month to finish it.

    Now i need to know how ready i am for the exam.

    How close in terms of difficulty is the final exam at the end of the book?

    If i get a good score should i be confident with taking the exam?

    You need to be consistently scoring %90+ on any practice tests

    Get 90% consistently on practice test. It also depends on how confident you feel about the exam and on how well you know the material.

    I'd spend the $ for Gibson's online tests that include sample performance based questions. As I had ten performance based questions being prepared for those was very important. I highly suggest you go through every test question and dissect that answers and understand WHY the correct answer is the correct one and why the wrong ones are wrong.

    There are some decent practice tests - 12 of them - at

    CompTIA Security+ Practice Test Questions

    Unfortunately, they don't explain why an answer is correct or incorrect, but I've learned a good deal by researching why my answers were correct or not.

    HTH!
