Security+ SY0-401 Study Guide

Woo Hoo! The CompTIA Security+ SY0-401 Study Guide is now available.

CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-401 Study Guide
I'm am very happy to say that the CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-401 Study Guide is now available in both paperback and Kindle versions. This is the update to the top-selling SY0-201 and SY0-301 study guides, which have helped thousands of readers pass the exam the first time they took it.

With over 400 realistic practice test questions including in-depth explanations, you'll be able to test your comprehension and readiness for the exam. The book includes:
  • A 100 question pre-test
  • A 100 question post-test
  • Practice test questions at the end of every chapter
Each practice test question includes a detailed explanation to help you understand the content and the reasoning behind the question. You’ll be ready to take and pass the exam the first time you take it.

CompTIA Approved Quality Content (CAQC) 

CompTIA Authorized Quality Content (CAQC)
One thing I'm really grateful for is that I was able to get this book reviewed and certified under the CompTIA Approved Quality Content (CAQC) program.

Many instructors have asked for this in the past so that they can use it in colleges, universities, and training institutions that require this certification.

Online Resources for the
SY0-401 Study Guide

The gcgapremium site has online practice test questions derived from the book. As with the past versions, I'll update them as time moves forward.

They are currently available with introductory pricing and I've been getting great feedback from people that are using them. Additionally, I've created labs to go with the book and they are available here: I expect to add additional labs to help readers too.

More to Come to Supplement the SY0-401 Study Guide

I'm still working on other materials related to this book including:
  • Instructor materials. These will include PowerPoint files at a minimum.
  • Apps. My partners at LearnZapp are creating the apps for the SY0-401 exam.
  • Audio files. These will include the Remember This blocks, practice test questions from each chapter, and the end of chapter reviews.
