CompTIA Security+ Certification Prep 1

The U.S. Department of Labor forecasts that information security analysts will be among the fastest-growing occupations through 2022. CompTIA's Security+ certificate is widely regarded as the entry-level certificate for this fast-growing field. Getting that certificate requires passing CompTIA's challenging SY0-501 exam. This course covers the key terminology and concepts you need to know to ace the exam, all in a condensed format for rapid reading. The course provides helpful study tools including games and practice questions to aid with learning. All of the content is geared toward helping you pass the SY0-501 exam, so you can leave the test center with your Security+ certificate in hand, whether you are taking the exam for the first time, or using it as a refresher to renew your certification.
