    Default New Exam !!

    I just got this word from CompTIA (my school is an E2C partner).
    The new version of the exam is scheduled to launch in October of 2008.
    I'm working on getting a copy of the new objectives and I will let all know when these are available. I'm going to a meeting on April 15 to get further details on the launch/retirement.

    News as it arrives.

    Good news. The current one seems to be quite dated. Thanks for the update.

    Thanks for the word on Security+ exam.

    I need to take before October because my timeline was set around August. I should be ok.

    Thanks for the info.

    I was about to get back in to the cert thing and Security+ looked like something very useful. I am sure I can pass the test before October but would rather wait for the updated test to be more current.

    I have 3 M$ test that I can work on till next year anyway.

    Thanks man, got your e-mail, looked at the new objectives as well. It seems they have added a lot of new stuff, but nothing you wouldn't come across in real world.

    I have been preparing of the Security+ for some time now and plan to take the current version exam pretty soon.

    You know for sure the objectives are not going to be in effect until october 2008. Only reason I ask this is because I don't want to have to prepare for the exam all over again, neither do I want to appear for the exam all prepared with the old objectives.

    Your input will be appreciated.

    Don't hesitate and wait for "updates". Take the exam when you are ready.

    I plan on taking the Net+ exam in the next month or so anyway, so I guess I lucked out with not having to study new material over again.

    That what I was worried about, whats the point of taking a cert that it will be updated in a few months...

    Im thinking in taking it in the beginning of june, since there are no updates planned for network+ this year or the next apparently, and begin self studying security+ as soon as updated material is launched and the cert updated also!

    I basically don't trust any news articles date April 1st. It is an absolutely horrible day to look at any news, because there is always fall-out from pranks for the next several weeks.

    I have called Comptia today about the Security+ test and they told me that there were no plans to update as of this time and even if they did, the current test will still be in effect for at least 7-8 months.

    Dear All,

    I base this information on communications with Carol Balkcom, Product Manager, CompTIA Security+, RFID+, Linux+. I am a little more plugged into CompTIA than most.

    If you don't choose to believe it, fine. A Skills Development meeting is scheduled for April 15th. I should have more info at that time... if you choose to believe it, or not.

    Right... You expect me to believe that someone named "Super Tech", who has a boatload of CompTIA certifications, is a reliable source for CompTIA information?

    What's next? Mike being a reliable source of Cisco information? Outrageous!

    A Skills Development meeting is scheduled for April 15th
    From comptia webpage:

    CompTIA is currently seeking Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to provide assistance in an Item Development Workshop for a new CompTIA Security+ exam. Item Development is the phase of exam development when the questions for the exam are written. The workshop is taking place Feb. 11-15, 2008. This step is part of an ongoing development process that is necessary to ensure the validity of the exam. Assistance from SMEs is crucial to the relevance and quality of the program.

    CompTIA is currently seeking Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to provide assistance in the CompTIA Network+ Item Development Workshop. Item Development is the phase of exam development when the questions for the exam are written. The workshop is taking place on May 12-16, 2008 at our headquarters in Oakbrook Terrace, IL. This step is part of an ongoing development process that is necessary to ensure the validity of the exam. Assistance from SMEs is crucial to the relevance and quality of the program.
    An email I received from comptia about the matter:

    Dear Mauricio,



    Thank you for your email.



    At this time, we do not have any notification of a change with the Network+ exam. The Security+ exam will be upgraded in October 2008. The current Security+ exam (2007) edition will retire on April 30, 2009. More information about the Security+ exam will be on the website next month.



    Regards,



    CompTIA
