1  CompTIA / Security+ / passed on: October 31, 2005, 08:28:11 PM
Just passed this exam,
Passing score is 764 on 100 - 900 scale
I got 868

I Used the Tcat book - very very good.
some prac exams.
also used resources like: - good for info on info on L2TP PPTP etc etc.

Certcities - exam review.

While waiting for the Tcat book I also used the free version online at:
It's the same thing only on webpages rather then paper.

I also used various other resources found via google when I wanted more info on something specific.

The exam was rather easy taking into account my previous experience with certs such as MCSA, MCSE including security exams. The questions are very short and there is more then enough time to complete the exam and review.

I recommend this exam and I would do it before the Microsoft security exams as it easier and a good overview or security. The study I did to prepare for this exam was very useful and would have been worth while even without doing the exam.

The Cons:
Some of the questions are not very good.
The exam is expensive.

Same situation as me, I just need 2 exams for MCSE

Is the exam path Ive decided on

Then all I need to do is CompTIA Security+ for MCSE+Sec and MCSA+Sec

Then I'll do the 2 upgrade exams for 2003 and that also keeps the +sec specialisation
(but I think I will do Citrix CCA before the upgrade of MCSE/MCSA to 2003)

Just noticed that you are an MCSA working on MCSE (+sec I assume) then your Citrix CCA same path as me for starters Wink

Yeah, I agree these exam topics seem not so hard so far.

The security+ exams looks like it would be interesting to study.

So whats your plan of attack for this exam?

(lets see if we can wake this forum up)Wink

Is anyone currently studying for this exam?

I've just started to study it I notice that this forum is not very active.

Im not sure at this point how far Im going to take my study of security but for now I think it's worth while learning about because these days security is in every IT workers interest not just the security specialist within an organisation.

I hope to see this thread become more active.

Passed 70-217 today 840 score.

Demo exams like easycert demos, Transcender
Microsoft Technet <- suggest everyone learn to use this resource as it is very good with some great content.

Study Lab (4 PC's dedicated to study only)

My experience with the exam:

number of questions = 43
Pass = 700

Lots of exhibits!

Lots of choose all that are correct or choose 2 or 3 type questions.

Topics are like others have already advised:
DNS (lots)
Group Policy (lots)
Replication and Sites (lots)
Restore DC's etc (a few Q's)
RIS (a little bit)

Etc see other post previous to this one.

My path taken so far(in order):


Exams yet to take in order:


Then on to others like 2003 upgrades and Cisco or higher level security certs.
it never ends:)

bye all /me moves on to 70-214 forum.

Id agree im finding this one hard to study for because its so boring and seems repetitive to some degree cant wait to get it over with and then start study for the security exams. Thanks for the tips.

AD is less "network invasive", because for finding resources, AD do not broadcast messages, Master Browser does.

I would disagree with C being the answer cause you said in the question that:
'You have a native Windows 2000 Domain with 123 Windows 2000 Professional'
Nothing about having any pre-w2k clients.

Good question but got me thinking.

Cool I check the forum out more if their is QOD's

Is it possible that none of the above are correct?

My understanding of PDC emulator role was that in a Windows 2000 domain operating in native mode the PDC emulator receives
replication of password changes performed by other domain controllers in the domain. If a password was recently changed, that change will take time to replicate to every domain controller in the domain. If a logon
authentication fails at another domain controller due to a bad password
that domain controller then forwards the  request to the PDC emulator before denying the log on attempt and sending a notification.

But I dont know the effect of this role not being avaliable Sad my guess is D but im not 100% on that because of what I said above :confused: Ill do some more study on that tonight.
edit: ok yep D for sure and I now know that without the pdc emulator the local dc would still forfill the request (inregards to password verification).

Funny how things work out I just studied FSMO roles and today at work I was delegated the job of transferring the FSMO roles to another server
