    Default Yey Passed!

    Scored 772. Not a great score but a pass nontheless.

    My advice to anyone taking this cert is simply to throughly revise ALL of the topics on the syllabus and then some!

    When I did Network+ I lost a little confidence in the validity of Comptia certs as it litterally took me 35 mins to score 820 which I felt was just a little too easy.

    Security+ has COMPLETELY restored my faith in the validity of Comptia certs. This exam is not to be underestimated.

    I suppose that should have scored better but I was even asked questions derived from subject matter not even on the syllabus??? Some of the questions also seemed a little ambiguous.

    To study I used the Sybex Sec+ study guide which I read in it's entirety. I also borrowed a friends Syngress study guide although I didn't read this from cover to cover. I watched some of the Learnkey video series and read 'Security+ for Dummies' which quite surprisingly was v.good at delivering precise bursts of information (just enough to keep you attentive).

    Now onto 70-218 then I'm finally MCSA!

    Good job!

    I'm going to take the Network+ just so I can have my elective for the MCSA, but I'm very interested in the Sec+. For one, it's an elective for MCSE, or if you want the 'Security' title added on to your MS certs.

    Also, it seems that Security really is something that administers and other somewhat advanced techs/consultants should know in today's quagmire of spyware and hacking.

    Or maybe I'm dreaming.....
