I started the course in February 2020. Because of the epidemic, I thought the examination room didn’t recover so quickly, so I didn’t read much after the course until the examination room recovered. After seeing the students in the group pass one after another in May, I also began to review materials again, redo the previous handouts and test questions several times, took the exam in mid June, and passed with 825 points.
Generally speaking, security + exam is not too difficult. It prefers to test the concept of security technology. The scope is still relatively wide. As long as you seriously participate in the course, understand the knowledge points after class, and carefully read the question bank issued, there is basically no problem in passing. Moreover, the students who have passed the examination in our group will also share their experience and often discuss problems together.
The test time is 90 minutes and 30 minutes. Read the test rules. There are 84 questions in total (3 drag chart questions, and the others are single or multiple choices). The full score is 900 points, 750 points, and the score line is still relatively high, with a pass rate of about 83%.
Security + certification focuses more on information security technology, mainly including six modules: network security, compliance and operation and maintenance security, threats and vulnerabilities, data application and host security, access control and identity management, and cryptography. This certification is more suitable for pre-sales (personal opinion) or students or students who are going to switch to safety industry.
Examination suggestions: it is recommended to do the test questions several times and answer them according to your first impression. If you are not very sure, it is recommended not to modify the answers. It is best to understand the original English questions, because there are still some problems in translation during the examination. It is suggested to choose the drawing questions according to their actual knowledge and understanding of the situation.
The above is the experience sharing of Security + students in preparing for the exam. At the same time, I would like to congratulate this student on raising the scholarship!
Security + certification is a kind of neutral third-party certification, and its issuing authority is CompTIA; It is one of the top 10 hot certifications in the international IT industry, including CISSP and ITIL. Domestic authoritative certification related to information security is basically aimed at practitioners with several years of work experience, which is partial to theory, framework and guidance, and lacks a basic, operational, practical and high gold content security certification. The emergence of Security + fills the gap in this regard.
Whether graduates, novices without orthodox security education, or even senior people in information security management positions and operation and maintenance and developers in non security positions, security + is an excellent security technology practical training.
