    Default Security+

    Hi Guys,


    I'm planning to take Security+ exam. I'm bit confused what exam to take(401 or 501). My friends suggested taking 501. But can't find much study materials and practice questions for it. So I have 2nd thoughts to take the 401.

    Which exam would be better to take? If so what will be the resource materials I should use?


    Please suggest.


    P.S: I am a beginner.

    401 retirement date is July 2018. If you plan on taking the exam soon, I'd suggest going for 401 since there are plenty of proven study resources available.

    Do the 401. It won't matter which version of the exam you pass, you will still get the same Security+CE certification out of it. Like you mentioned, there are way more resources available for the 401. Personally, I found the Darril Gibson book to be invaluable.
