    Just got back from the testing center with a pass of 840. Not fantastic but I'll take it.

    I used the Sybex CompTIA Security+ Deluxe Study Guide and CBT Nuggets.

    The mix of questions was fair and covered a wide range of topics but as usual with CompTIA exams, the wording tends to be confusing and leads to a lot of head scratching.

    Off to the next one. :biggrin

    Good Job! 840 out of a possible 900 is nothing to sneeze at!

    I was about to ask if they had changed the max score from 900, obviously not so well done :D

    How fast did you do it? I managed mine in about 18 minutes (thats from walking into the test centre to walking back out of the test centre).

    Smartarse. I took my time and had it done in an hour. The funny thing is that I usually get a 30 minute extension to all my exams here due to taking an english language version of the exam in a non english speaking country. :twisted: Don't really need to use it though (but then again I haven't done the 291 yet).

    Careful... passing a test where you take approximately 11 seconds per question can get you flagged as a potential braindumper by CompTIA... regardless of whether you braindumped or not.

    Put yourself in their shoes... if you were CompTIA, wouldn't YOU be suspicious?
