The SY0-401 Study Guide is now available. Woo Hoo!
After more than eight months, I’m am very happy to say that the CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-401 Study Guide is now available. 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.
The Kindle version was released on September 16th, 2014 and the paperback version was released on October 25th, 2014.
The book has over 400 realistic practice test questions with in-depth explanations to help you test your comprehension and readiness for the exam. The book includes:
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)
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, but 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: http://gcgapremium.com/labs/. As time moves forward, I expect to add additional labs here too.
More to Come to Supplement the SY0-401 Study Guide
I’m still working on other materials related to this book including:
- Audio files. These will include the Remember This blocks, practice test questions from each chapter, and the end of chapter reviews.
- Instructor materials. These will include PowerPoint files at a minimum.
- Apps. My partners at LearnZapp are creating the apps for the SY0-401 exam.
