Hello All, I am currently reading the Sybex 4th Ed book in preparation to take the CompTIA Security+ exam. I was wondering what is the best additional things I can do to assist with this. I am where possible using my current position as a system admin to assist with gaining security experience and knowledge. I was thinking the next best thing, atleast for the exam, might be an Exam Simulator, but they look expensive. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I have seen a few InfoSec guys on here with Sec+, CISSP etc. Thanks, Ashley

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Some of the books also come with exam simulators. That is the process I use to pass exams. I take the sample exams until I can consistently score 90% or better everytime I take them. I have not failed any certification test yet. I used the Sybex book also. I also got the Exam Cram series of books published by Que. Amazon is a good source for buying certification training materials. You can often get package deals of 2 or 3 books about the certification topic for a reasonable price – certainly less than the costs of buying the books individually.

Good luck in your certification and professional path!

    Definitely check out the practice exams such as what Boson has to offer. Some good information books at your local store and on Amazon.com will help as well. Best of luck!
