Well, I passed the Sec+ exam last night. I can't say it was a hard test, as it is largely entry level, however, there were several poorly worded questions. It's over, and that is all the matters. I used the text to study, along with my classes at Capitol. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0072227419/102-3145860-3484123?v=glance&n=283155 Now, I ask the board, what cert should be next? I plan on doing the cissp late summer, however, I was looking to the CEH or some of the SANS certs. thoughts?
