After procrastinating for a couple of months, I set a date and sat the Security+ exam. I didn’t do too much revision for this, I skimmed an old Sybex ebook that I had on the Kindle app from back when I couldn’t afford the exam, I thought this would be enough alongside my real world experience. Happily I passed the exam with 822.

I was impressed by the configuration type questions, they caught me out a little but I think I managed to get these correct. I was owned on a couple of risk related question which I assume I got wrong and I don’t recall seeing anything around this in the old ebook I had – I’ll blame the book, other than that I felt like I had it covered.

It is definitely an entry level examination but nice to have.
