I am required to maintain CompTIA Security+ certification for my job and needed study resources to ensure that I passed the exam the first time. I acquired the Sybex CompTIA Security+ Study Guide and read the entire book. After taking all the practice exams in the book I then began using the eTestPrep software to further refine my knowledge and test taking skills. I can honestly say that I passed my Security+ certification thanks to these great products by Sybex. Read the book, use this eTestPrep software, then take and pass the exam!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
You should probably note that you will need to go online to get a licence key when you first use this software. And that the licence only lasts for 3 years after that first usage. Still, that should be perfectly adequate for most if not all users.

The number of questions in the test is voluminous. 700 in toto. But remember that the correct approach for many users is to first read the material and try to assimilate as much as you can. This DVD is no substitute for that, which should take most of your time. When you feel confident enough then tackle the exams given here.

The code offers 2 modes of testing. The lesser, if I may use that term, involves you being able to check your answers as you proceed through an exam. The DVD calls this the learning mode, which I guess it is. But again I strongly recommend that you spend most of your time reading the subject material from a text. It is tempting to perhaps skim the latter and then go straight to trying out an exam to see how well you stand. Maybe it will work for some users. But for long term retention and in looking beyond whether you will pass the real life SY0-301 exam, it will be more productive to grind out the hard work by understanding the material.

The other DVD mode is the standard testing mode. You tackle the problems and it gives you the result. The diagnostics of which ones you got wrong will indicate what you need to reread. More carefully this time, presumably!

The CompTIA Security + Test Prep Package is a great way to efficiently study for the exam. Once you install the software, you must register a license key online, then you are ready to start testing yourself. With over 700 example questions, the test prep software can provide tremendous help while you are studying. I highly recommend this test prep for anyone looking to get or maintain their certification.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This had the potential to be a really fantastic tool, but it turned out to be just an okay one. The decision to opt for 3 year licensing is just weird to me, considering that the test will be out of date by the time the license runs out, most likely. I suppose people could probably past a future version of the test by studying the current material, since it's not like security changes completely from one year to the next, but most people naturally prefer to stick with studying the most current materials anyway.

The ebook that was included is sort of wrapped up within the software, and that makes it a lot more difficult to read than something you can just load onto an iPad or an ereader.

I also had to do some fighting with the software to get it to load right and to not give me database errors. I guess when you're selling something to people who are reasonably adept with computers anyway, you have a little extra leeway to have things not work perfectly, but it was still annoying to have to run through the install several times to get it to play nice.

Sybex's CompTIA Security+ eTestPrep courseware is fantastic for both its content and its instant feedback. The full featured Practice Test Mode is an excellent way to measure real-world performance, while the Learning Mode provides a more casual approach to the test, with the option of using hints and tips for guidance.

The Study Guide is a remarkable reference; however, the presentation of the guide is the only shortcoming to this otherwise exceptional software.

Since the study guide is taller than it is wide, and my monitor is wider than it is tall, it would be nice if I had the option to arrange the chapter menu vertically to the side of the viewport. I find it distracting needing, constantly, to use my hand icon to move the book into the viewport so that I may read it. Sure, I can click the "Fit to Page" button, but then the text is too small for me to read. Once I zoom in as much as possible, the text is easily read. Each turn of a page, the zoom factor returns to the default small size.

The software activation key provides a three-year license. The number of remaining days displays clearly at the top of the screen.

There was an update available for download - version 1.0.0.10. I worried about my activation key when it got to the point of asking to uninstall the previous version, but when the new update had finished, my previous activation was still intact, and so it turns out, I was good to go!

I love the product, but I wish Sybex would implement screen layout options for the study guide in a future update. I will return to bump my rating up a notch if they do.
