The U.S. Department of Labor forecasts that computer security and related computer-support specialties will be among the fastest-growing occupations through 2018. CompTIA's Security+ certificate is widely regarded as the entry-level certificate for this fast-growing field. Getting that certificate requires passing CompTIA's challenging SY0-301 exam.
This course covers the key terminology and concepts needed to ace the exam, all in a condensed format for rapid reading. The course provides helpful study tools including crossword puzzles, games, and practice questions to aid with learning. All of the content is geared toward helping you pass the SY0-301 exam so you can leave the test center with your Security+ certificate in hand.
Please note that if you received your Comp TIA A+ certification before 1/1/2011, you will be a lifetime credential holder not subject to credential renewals. If you achieve your certification after 1/1/2011, you will be subject to a CompTIA A+ renewal process every three years.
