Awesome! How was it? Topics covered?

I got my A+ back in highschool and have thought about getting some other certifications.

I thought it was kinda rough because of all the areas covered. You might have a general question on organizational security and then something like what does v3 of the x.509 certificate cover. You never know how deep to go in each area. Another odd thing is it had some stuff that was in the a+ and the net+, like backups and port numbers. Overall I thought it was a good comprehensive test with some horribly worded questions thrown in for fun. :supergrin:

I didn't got yours either. Specifically, what would you like to know?

FWIW

For a basic security cert , it's okay but not desirable in a lot of companies.
A CISSP or anything from SANS would hold more weight and look at with more interest.


For a basic IT position it's okay.

Oh I understand that completely, but until I have 3 years of OJT, the CISSP is unattainable. I do plan on attending some SANS courses in the near future as company finances allow.
