    Hi,

    Well i think that what you 've gone throught is enough.However, I recommend you go throught Security+ Exam cram 2.

    Don't worry the exam is simple you just need to know the concept.

    Good Luck JatinJ_2006 :)

    I would slightly disagree that the exam is simple. Personally I think CompTIA exams tend to be poorly written which doesn't help. The security+ exam is seen by many as the hardest that CompTIA do. The only help I can give you is to make sure that you know your stuff and that you do as many practice exams possible. Go through CompTIA's objectives and make sure you have covered them all as good books on Security+ are few and far between. Also no book covers all the objectives as well.

    Zimbo, CompTIA prices are shockingly high and in some respects not worth the money. God knows why they stupidly outprice themselves for many people. Maybe it's because their exams are for life and they only get one chance to rip you off...:biggrin
