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.
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.
