    Feels like an age since I last spoke with you fine folks, but here I go again with my new venture-Security+. I am planning on studying and sitting the exam over the next few months and after much deliberation and searching I have come up with these two study aids..

    www.amazon.co.uk/CompTIA-Security&#...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1204278425&sr=1-1

    www.amazon.co.uk/CompTIA-Security+-...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1204278425&sr=1-2

    Any comments on those puppies would be gratefully recieved prior to persuading my boss to pay for them..8)

    With the kind permission of CF's admins I would like to start 'my very own S+ blog' in a similar fashion to my N+ shennanigans. The N+ blog became a great reference tool for me and helped endlessly in my N+ studies. I'm hoping to repeat that with Security+.

    Anyways it's great to be back an I'm looking forward to the adventure.

    When I took the Security+ exams I found that there wasn't many (good) books on the subject but I used the exam cram book which I found good and another book which I can't remember (could of been the Sybex books). As this isn't one of CompTIA's most popular exams material is pretty thin on the ground.

    Welcome back Mr NoMates! :D

    I have got the Sybex book you show in your first link. It is good, but I do wonder if it is sufficient to allow me to pass the exam.

    There is an ExamCram book (or books) as well. I thought I had them, but I have done a clean out of my home office, and I now cannot find them... :(

    Can't wait for your blog... you are doing one, I hope... 8)

    I'll look forward to that blog as well. When I get my studying back on track Security+ is one of the ones I'll be going for.

    well spotted BM..8)

    I've ordered the kit and the ExamCram set of study book and practice exams. I'll be making a start on the blog as soon as I get chance to sit, read and digest the first chapter or two....
