Top 5 Guides to Study for CompTIA Security+ Exam (SY-601)

Top 5 guides to study for CompTIA Security+ Exam (SY-601)

2021 is the perfect year to gain new knowledge and skill. Some people can study for exams using videos and absorb the material. Other people need a boot camp or class to get the best results. Others need a good old-fashioned book or an eBook to tap into their best learning style. I know sometimes it takes a good book, a pad of notebook paper, and a bucketful of highlighters and pens to study. Here are 5 great choices for those needing to certify for the first time or professionals needing to re-certify. My advice is to always use at least two sources of study materials. So use one of these books or another of your choice and videos that can be found for free on various streaming platforms. Do your due diligence. Find the material and support that works best for your learning style, goal, and lifestyle. There are affiliate links please use them if shopping to keep the lights on in the mentor cave.
