    Hello all -

    I passed Security+ recently (hooray!) and just wanted to let everyone know that the following combination of training materials worked really well:

    -Sybex Security+ 2008 Edition book
    -ExamForce practice Test
    -4 months on the job experience

    Also, if you want to use it as an elective for MCSE, please see the information below on how to apply it:

    Thank you for contacting CompTIA. Microsoft accepts the combination of CompTIA A+ with either CompTIA Network+ or CompTIA Server+ as an elective for the Microsoft Certified System Administrator (MCSA) certification program. In addition, Microsoft accepts CompTIA Security+ as an elective for both the MCSA and the Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE) certifications, and as a specialization option for the MCSA: Security and MCSE: Security certifications.

    You can forward an electronic verification of your certification using the ‘Transcript’ feature.

    On your first visit to this page you will essentially see a ‘blank’ screen with only column headings. Select ‘Create new transcript’ located to the left, under the word ‘Transcripts’. This will take you to the ‘Create/Edit’ screen.



    The options on the CREATE/EDIT page are as follows: Select the boxes appropriate to your needs as described below:



    DISABLED – allows You to ‘disable viewing’ by your recipient prior to the original ‘Can be viewed until’ date.

    Note, this will disable ALL transcripts sent under this particular transcript number.



    DISPLAY CERTS – Will display only the Certification held, without certification dates. MUST be checked.



    IF DISPLAYING CERTS – Will display Certification dates along with certification held. CAN be checked.

    SHOW CERT DATES



    CAN BE VIEWED UNTIL – This is the last date Transcript can be viewed by your recipient. Average time given is usually 30 to 90 days. Format of date field is flexible (2010-12-31 or 31-12-10 or 12-31-2010 etc.)



    PRIVATE NOTES: Area where you can place note or reference for yourself – is displayed on main transcript screen



    REMARKS –These are visible to your recipient. You would enter your MCP# in this box when submitting for Microsoft validations.



    SUBMIT BUTTON– Creates Transcript & Transcript ID#.



    You will be sent back to the Transcript ‘home page’. Select the transcript ID you wish to publish, enter an email address & hit the ‘submit’ button. This occurs quickly and a notification will appear at the top of the page. Each email address the transcript is sent to must be entered individually. Again, when the disabled feature is used, ALL the recipients who received the transcript ID# will be disabled. Feel free to send to yourself first, so you can review what your recipient will be receiving.



    Microsoft’s email address, if applicable is mcphelp@microsoft.com They will only accept your certification information by using this validation process. If you have any questions please contact Microsoft at 1-800-636-7544.



    Note; The ‘submit’ button in the received email does not link anywhere – we are working on removing this from the email sent.



    If you should have any additional questions, please e-mail us at questions@comptia.org or you can call our customer service department at 1-630-678-8300, option 5.





    Again, thank you for your inquiry.
