Hi

I'm planning on taking the security+ exam in a while and i was wondering :

The site says it is aimed at professionals with 2years job experience . I i'm in my last year of school so i don't have any job experience . Now my question is : Do i have any chance of succeeding for this exam and if not do i have any other options to learn more about security .

Thanks in advance

Reejz.

If you really want to learn about it - global knowledge has a great 8 cd kit to give you more than enough to take and pass it.
I also recommend TestOut's security + training.  While their version of Security + alone, imo, may not be enough to pass the exam, this combined with at least one other resource should be.

there are also good books that are available that include CD's/Simulators for the tests... One of the best companies I have seen for the Whatever+ certifications is Sybex. Try taking a look at the books they publish for the Security+ and see if any of them would benefit you... (I just bought a book and am looking at taking the same cert myself)
