CompTIA Security+ Exam Overview

This Exam Review provides an overview the specifics of what the exam covers, tips on what you should do before during and after your exam, the percentage of the exam each topic covers, the range and total number questions you should expect, and how you can self-test to prepare yourself,  and what you can expect as part of the certification exam process.

The Exam Module review what you need to know and for which particular concepts, it covers logistics, timing, and offers a number of certification exam tips.

You’ll learn techniques for addressing the types of queries you’ll encounter on the CompTIA Security+ Exam.  For example, note what type of questions are presented first, in this case performance based queries.  If you’d rather not answer those, the exam overview will provide guidance on what to do and how you can return to that section and be better prepared with responses.

We also discuss and provide some examples of simulation type questions, advise on total number of queries the exam has and provide the passing score benchmark.  And finally, we advise you on the exam and certification notification process and how you can obtain your CompTIA Security+ Certification document.

The test taking tips discussed here apply to any exam or professional evaluation you’d prepare yourself for not the CompTIA Security+ certification exam in particular.

The goal of this Exam Review is to help you manage your time wisely, think through the exam to navigate it strategically, and master each phase of the exam thoroughly.
