A unique perspective on using technology everyday.

Certified!

Not too long ago I got on a Certification Kick; the certifications that I became interested in acheiving were within the field of IT Security which is where the underlaying mindset was when I wrote my last post on Creating a Strong Password. To start my IT Security certification track I decided to first take my CompTIA Security+ exam since CompTIA is vendor neutral and a great first step; additionally, passing is a great confidence booster. I would like to report that I passed the CompTIA Security+ exam, and will be continuing my certification kick with either the Certified Penetration Testing Specialist and the CISSP. However, I wanted to inform people of what I found most helpful when taking the CompTIA Security+ exam.

Highly Recommended Study Material for the CompTIA Security+

To study for the CompTIA Security+ exam I ended up using CBT Nuggets, SelfTest Software, Pass4Sure, and Microsoft Press Security+ Book; of those four, the only thing that ended up being close to useless was the SelfTest Software: not to say that SelfTest is bad, because they are great for studying for the Microsoft Exams. However, for the CompTIA Security+ using the Pass4Sure test engine is much more effective.
