    We have it here too: http://techexams.net/co_securityplus.shtml

    I think it has the highest passing % of all the CompTIA certifications.

    Also, keep in mind that the exam is being updated this fall.

    About how many out of the 100 questions can you get wrong and still pass?

    Try not to get any wrong

    Anyway I think I figured this out once.... I seems to me if you assumed that each question was graded the same. Then each question would be worth 8 points. I think that means the most you could miss would be 18 questions.

    You don't want to know the question average, trust me on this one. It caused high anxiety and nervousness for me the day of the exam to know it. But then again the numbers aren't even accurate because it seems to be that the questions are weighted differently so you can't really figure an exact number. Just make sure you know your stuff and go in with a winner attitude!

    Well, 764/900 is approximately 85%, which would mean you need 85/100.

    I don't think that's entirely accurate though, since the lowest score is 100, not 0.

    If you take 100 off of each (since you apparently get that just for paying), you'll need to get 664/800, which is about 83%. That's a little better.

    I don't think the questions are weighted since they are basic multiple choice questions. However, they sometimes include ungraded questions, and who knows how those are factored into the equation.

    Just don't get anything wrong, and you'll have nothing to worry about. No big deal.

    Default Security+ passing score

    The min score is 764 (scale 100-900). That means you need to get about 85-90% of the questions right.

    The questions are very technical. All about network security and how you go about protecting the netowrk from unwanted intrusion.

    Hi,
    The best source for these exams is to visit the CompTIA website for the exams details, like for the passing score you'll find it here bro and the exam code is SY0-201...

    Good luck, am writing mine on 30th this month......
