  • CompTIA Security+ SYO-501

    Hello all,

    As i'm studying for the SYO-501 Exam (Comptia Sec+) i was wondering if anyone has some advice i could hear out for the exam,

    this would generally include what to focus studies on,

    where to find the right information

    and any exam advice you could potentially provide for potential students.

    i would greatly appreciate this, as i'm really stuck on what to focus my studies on.

    I do also have an SYO-501 study guide book, however it is not very concise (just like my Network+ book )

    (i won't be taking the exam until the end of this year or beginning of next year, so i have enough time to properly study)


    Thanks in advance!

    Have you signed up for an account over at Cybrary yet? They have a ton of videos on a wide range of topics for folks at all career levels. Access to the videos is free. I've never looked into their paid subscriptions, so I"m not sure what extra stuff that will get you.

          I would definetly recommend using multiple sources for studying. I would also highly recommend Professor Messer's content on YouTube. I've heard fantastic things about it from folks.https://www.youtube.com/user/professormesser

          As far as concise training guides, I actually wrote and published a Network+ training guide, it's available on Amazon and has been really well received by the folks I know who've gotten it. It's very concise(apx 110 pages) which is much smaller than the larger book I had years ago studying for my Network+. https://amzn.to/2vTODU2

          The reason I bring this up(besides you mentioning your Network+ book) is that there is a Security+ book in this same series of Comptia study guides (I did not write it) that should be equally concise and might be beneficial as a resource. https://amzn.to/2UOK2Nh The author, Lauren, is on Twitter, so you can go check her out and ask her any question about the book, @jotunvillur

            Thanks a million JBizzle703 ,

            Those books look great from what i can see in the previews of them, i'll most likely order them at some point soon, as i'm far too busy at the moment,

            but definitely looking forward to what i can learn from that!


            from what i've heard on Sec+ and seen from the books i currently own,

            a lot of it crosses over with networks, so it will be extremely useful to have a concise knowledgebase to crossreference!

              There is a lot of overlap on the underlying topics between the two. Years ago when I took them(2006), I did the Net+ first and when it came to the Sec+ it was not hard to pick up the rest of the topics at all.

              Thanks for the comments on the book! I've gotten tons of positive feedback on it.

                Thanks for sharing the book JBizzle703, I'm currently studying for the Net+ so I'm after ordering a copy of it. Hopefully combining it with the more detailed book I have and some of Professor Messer's videos I'll be flying.

                I'll to check out the Sec+ book once I'm done with the Net+.
