I can now add "Security+ Certified" to my resume.

Convinced I was going to fail, given that I missed half the class and have not exactly had the clearest and best-functioning of brains for the past few months (hell, large parts of this year, for one reason or another), I passed with a score of 855 on a 100-900 scale. Since it's a minimum 750 to pass, it wasn't even a seat-of-my-pants dumb-luck pass either, but a respectable pass.

Of course, since I'm an insurance agent, not sure how much good having "Security+ Certified" on my resume will do, but hey, the company paid for it all, including my text and test voucher.

Of course, then I got a look at the size of the A+ and Network+ certification texts - I only thought I had to do a lot of work for Security+ . . .

Congratulations! Oddly enough, CompTIA usually recommenbds that you go the A+, then the Netwok+ first.

And I might have done it that way, had my company not been offering a test prep course on company time, free Sybex textbook, AND free test voucher. The only catch was that I had to do it by yesterday, since the vouchers expired 12/31/09.

I'm an MCDST, and I've built several PCs on my own, so A+ is mostly knowledge I already have anyway. Network+ will be the real work.
