    I completed the N+ in 2008 and am coming to the end of my computer forensics masters. I have decided to study something whilst i job search. I believe the cut off for the current course is 31 Dec 2010, so how long roughly does it take most people to study for the exam? I am aware everyone is different.

    Thanks.

    I just barely past it after a month of study, Although I had been fooking around a lot with firewalls n stuff.

    Make sure you know you IPSEC and that sort of thing and you should be okay.

    Hi, as I'm completing about to start my third year for a CS degree, do you mind if I ask you where are you studying your computer forensics master?
    Cheers.

    PS I'm planning to study a Computer Security master with the Royal Holloway in London.

    I believe it took me about a month to study for and pass this exam...

    They have just restructured the IT lecturers due to cut backs and have recently ended a marking strike so luckily wont affect you

    I noticed that the tutor that interviewed me (Gavin Butler) has now left, not sure why, but am having difficulties getting a programme of study and a reading list, :S

    I was given a reading list if required in the first lecture of each module.
