  • Outstanding product

    by islandextreme

    Easy to use, questions and answers perfect for test prep

  • Ok material! Not that great

    by UShercules

    I bought this material last week as part of additional study / quick review material; I would say this gives some good understanding of the subject and easy terminology references; if u buy this just to pass the exam, definitely u will be disappointed; this material can be used for side review but do not trust and buy this to pass; around 80% of question is outside of the questionnaire referred in this but if u understand clearly the concept and detail provided in this it will help u to answer the questions in test; BTW I took the exam today and passed with ok score ( not that exceptional like most others ) but passed; use this material for reference and understand the concept and detail; to pass read more additional materials along with this. This material need more update as the question pattern has changed so much (or may be the question set i received in exam; around 10 questions are with network, data center diagram). Good luck every one!! All the best!!

  • Great study aid

    by Bclingan

    I've been studying for the Security + exam and this is a nice supplement, but I feel like it could use more content. It's too easy to start memorizing the exact questions. Plus the sample test are the same as the mock tests. there are also some duplicates in the flash cards.

  • Perfect app

    by NextDoorNeighborFlavor

    Perfect for bits of downtime study in between putting out fires :)

  • Great study material

    by NetITguy

    This covers a lot of the material that is on the exam. It's so convenient to have and would recommend it for anyone taking the Security + Exam. Be careful not to memorize the answers. You need to actually read everything and familiarize yourself with everything. I highly suggest the notecards.

  • Awesome

    by Tbssucks

    Just like the study questions from Actual Test. Also, I love how they explain why the answer is what it is and why it's not. Worth the money!

  • Works Great

    by BeanSquak

    Pros: Neat and clean Fluid and responsive Matches material Cons: Using as a companion to the book and it is not segregated by chapter Quite expensive Overall it seems worthwhile. I can practice my knowledge on the go. While pricey, it beats a retest.

  • Great App!

    by Kridifer1

    I purchased this app a couple of weeks before I took the test. The app helped tremendously! The questions on the test were extremely close to the questions on the study material. I scored an 886 out of 900 just by studying with this app!

  • Read the explanations!

    by Just1CNNviewer

    I aced my exam. Used this app to review. The questions in this app seemed easier than the ones on the test; however, they were almost all based on the explanations given for why each answer is or isn't correct. Study the explanations, and know why the wrong answers are wrong and right ones are right and you will be ok.

  • Help desk technician

    by Elianajb

    Really helpful n easy to use

  • Good app

    by John Wood

    Took the test today and passed with a 790. I'd used this app for the last 2 weeks of prep and it gives good explanations. My practice test scores were in the low 90%, so they may not be an accurate prediction for how you'll do on the real thing. Also, remember that the real test is timed--this app and another one gave me a false sense of having plenty of time to take the test.

  • Great App!

    by Ezra86

    Nice at helping you to review for the SYO-301 exam.

  • Audiobook??????

    by busheymeister

    Although this covers all the bases, I bought it as an audiobook. KNewthe price was too low for that.

  • Too easy

    by Kobsto

    I read the Gibson book and it's great. I passed all of the practice tests on here with 100%. Then took the practice exam on comptias website and got a 60%. Then took the Meyers practice and got a 46%. So these questions are too easy and also the practice test is the same exact questions as the study questions.

  • Awesome app!!!

    by KahunaBlack

    Excellent app. Could not have pased my Security+ without it.

  • ipad

    by Scoops _

    Can you provide ipad support? it loads but i would like to use the features of ipad

  • Not Great Not Terrible

    by CMac0101

    Cons Many spelling/grammar errors which for the price is unacceptable. Exact duplicate questions with different answers Is disconcerting. I would expect more flash cards. Expensive considering what you get. Pros Easy to use. Nice format. Great for an on the fly study guide.

  • Security apps

    by William Simmons

    The Apps is a great tool for studying, would recommend to everyone that is preparing to take this exam.

  • Ok Apo!

    by Tech2021

    This app is pretty good. Too many misspelled words which became irritating. For the price there shouldn't be any misspelled words!

  • Too easy

    by Xo624

    This app is ok. It has some study questions but they are extremely easy compared to the real test.

  • Ok app

    by Prabin Amatya

    Ok app

  • Stay away

    by JTDXO

    I give this a D-. The practice questions are the same as the test questions. I also notice a large number of similar questions in this app that are in other apps and study guides (case of new look, same wording). Not worth the money. Needs to be more challenging along with a different pool of test questions.

    by Uk2us88

    Very decent app nice layout etc. can't beat it for the price....

  • Very good app

    by Lancelot56

    Download and start testing your knowledge. Very easy to use. Would be nice if it would track your scores. For the price, it's unbeatable!

  • Pretty Good


    This app was pretty consistent with my study material. The flash cards and practice test were very useful. This is a good investment for anyone looking to get certified. Thanks......

  • Great Study Guide!!!

    by someITdude309

    The questions could be a little harder because, the exam is harder. The app does go through the most current CompTIA objectives. I recommend this app to all CompTIA Security+ candidates.
