CompTIA Security+ 2011 (SY0-301)

January is all about getting ready to sit the CompTIA Security+ exam. I’ve created a study timetable for myself and I intend sitting the exam in the first week of February. To date I’ve been studying for about two months, so it’s a matter of keeping the head down and pushing on with the study.

Here are the details of the course from the CompTIA website – CompTIA Security+ 2011 (SY0-301)

I’m using as my exam provider to download the course material and syllabus. I found them reasonably priced, and they have a facility to pay the course cost in instalments rather than on one lump sum.
