    Just going through the book and exersises, doing well so thought I would set a date!
    The only problem I am having so far is the sheer number of acronyms in this course :eek: :blink

    Good luck Jamin.



    I took Security+ today (and passed 8) ).



    To those of you who might be considering this qualification, I would highly recommend it as the syllabus contains lots of essential security concepts. In fact, I would say that the knowledge required for this exam is essential for any job in IT.



    OTOH the exam is a bit of a disappointment - the questions are either ridiculously easy or infuriatingly ambiguous. I wouldn't say the exam tested my understanding of the course material at all. Pretty poor for nearly £200!



    Just my 2p's worth,



    z

    Hi all,
    well it has been a mad, hetic week!
    first I got a call tuesday from my testing centre, saying that thier server had blown up and my friday (13th!) test was cancelled! So I tried to rescheadule it for the next wens. only to be told that the testing centre could not accept any more bookings. At all.
    This was really bad timing as I was flying to Amasterdam on Friday eve, and getting back monday morning, with a few 'lemonades' during the gaps amiring the architechuture (mainly really nice windows (-;) So tuesday when I could think again, I just booked another exam for wens. as this was only only day I could get off work and I could not wait for the refund from friday. I amazingly passed with 844 out of 900.
    Then I just gave the uk helpdesk a call and they refunded the first exam fee. It is the most helpful telephone operator I have ever called - well done CompTIA!
    so all in all a result, on to the next, and thanks for all the kind words above all.
    Jamin.

    It sounds like you passed with an 844 / 900 and got some cash back, congratulations.

    Well done Jamin, I was begining to get a little worried since you hadn't posted (what with it being Friday 13th and all). That is a very good score BTW.

    What are you going to tackle next? - I am begining 70-299 this week (last one I need to get the MCSA:Security).
