Today I managed to pass the new Security+ certification exam (see my transcript). Since I will be teaching the academic course that is aligned with this certification for Saddleback College in the fall, I decided to use this as an opportunity to evaluate CompTIA’s learning content that included their textbook and their virtual labs. I believe based upon my success that both of these learning resources were very useful in my preparing for the exam.
My next effort will focus on the new CySA+ certification. I expect to take the next month preparing for the exam, focused on the CS0-002 exam objectives. Just like I did for the new Security+ exam, I’ll be evaluating the content of CompTIA’s textbook and virtual labs for the CySA+ exam preparation. Following my usual practice of creating a worksheet for the exam that incorporates a table containing the exam objectives along with a space for notes, you can view the blank worksheet in .pdf format by clicking HERE, and download an editable Word (.doc) version by clicking HERE.
