Resource #2: Good Books

You’ll need as many resources as possible to pass your exam. Here are some of the most popular Security+ books:


Resource #3: The Ultimate Study Resource
The Official CompTIA Security+ CertMaster Learn

If you could combine a comprehensive book, a set of practice exams, performance-based questions, flash cards, video instruction, and a final assessment exam, you would have the official CompTIA CertMaster Learn for Security+. There’s nothing else quite like it!


Resource #4: Plenty of Hands-On:
The official CompTIA Security+ CertMaster Labs

If you’re looking for the best hands-on labs, then you should go to the source. CompTIA has developed some of the most comprehensive and easy-to-use Security+ labs available.

Resource #5: Lots of Q&A

One of the best ways to know if you’re ready for the actual exam is to test yourself. My Practice Exams book provides three full practice exams, detailed explanations, and video links for each question topic.


CompTIA’s Official CertMaster Practice

CompTIA has developed a set of practice questions that will step through each domain before taking a final 90-minute practice exam. This online Q&A provides both multiple choice and performance-based questions.
