You should prepare for the Security+ exam with a variety of resources. In this video, Mike Chapple recommends the books and other resources that best accompany this video course.
- [Mike] The courses on this site contain all of the information that you'll need to pass the Security Plus exam. Now, I've worked with thousands of students over the years and I've helped them successfully pass the exam. Along the way I found that different people learn in different ways, and the best way to prepare for this test is to use a diverse set of resources. In addition to these video courses, there are three other study resources that I recommend to help you prepare for the exam. I've prepared each of them with you in mind to help you learn the Security Plus material, prepare for the test, and pass the exam on your first try. First, David Seidel and I are the co-authors of the Cybex Security Plus Study Guide, published by John Wiley and Sons. This book covers the same material that I discuss in this course and serves as an excellent reference as you prepare for the exam. I highly recommend having a copy by your side as you study. Second, I've prepared a Security Plus Practice Tests book that contains over a thousand practice test questions covering each of the Security Plus domains, as well as four full length practice tests to help you assess your knowledge. This book is available in both Kindle ebook and paperback forms. Finally, I also recommend that you visit my website at certmike.com and sign up for my free Security Plus Study Group. I'll send you emails to help keep you on track for the exam, along with free practice tests, study tips, and other resources to get you ready for test day. If you visit certmike.com now and click the Security Plus link, you'll be able to sign up for my free study group and I'll send you an email with links to all the resources that I recommend for the exam.
