    Hi All,

    Just wanted to let you guys know that I passed the Security+ this morning.

    Passing Score: 764
    Candiate Score: 786

    I really didn't like this exam, imo badly worded. But since the all the study material that I use was for the 2002 version, apart from the preplogic test engine, it wasn't that bad (hey I passed the 2007 version).

    Stuff I used to prepare for the exam:

    1. Learnkey CBT
    2. Cramsession study guide (yep freebie)
    3. Preplogic exam software, Syngress Security+ book (bought the pdf from their site and printed out the whole book at work) &
    4. Examcram2 Security+

    As well as previous knowledge from work and from MS material.

    To all those going for this exam, good luck.

    -Ken

    Yes, the exam *is* badly worded. But congrats, anyway!!

    I really liked the Syngress book for the previous version of the exam. What was your impression of how it prepared you for the new version?

    It actually was ok for the new version, but saying that I used a wide variety of study material so all-in-all everything I used was good. Generally I like Syngress books anyway as I used a couple of them for the MCSA/MCSE track.

    Good job, Ken. The Sec+ is in my sights as well, and I'm using somewhat the same materials.
