Excellent post!!!  appl.gif   clap.gif   yahoo.gif

It's amusing to see how even after completing your Security+ you manage to find the time to write such a wonderful post to help those currently pursuing this certification.

After quickly skimming through the website, I can guarantee it's a wonderful resource to study for many Security exams.

Thanks for the great find. Hands down for you  notworthy.gif
