  1. Hi, I passed the security+ exam last april 14 using darril’s book. I just saw the performance based questions posted here and this is exactly what appeared in the 4 simulations at the beginning of the exam. I was able to answer all the simulations because I understood the concepts of the subject. Thanks to Darril Gibson. I hope he can also write a book for the SSCP and CEH certification.

    • Hi Ronald,

      Congrats on the pass and great to hear the book helped.

      I do have an SSCP book out. You can use this URL http://ow.ly/w5BHH or search Amazon on “Darril Gibson SSCP”. Nothing on CEH right now though.

      Good luck with your next adventure.
