The simulations were very well done and informative, having questions and answers with explanations was a great way to study and catch up on new or old material. Customer service was great, very responsive, providing extra materials and helpful.”

About the Security+ credential
The Security+ credential is approved by the U.S. Dept. of Defense to meet Information Assurance (IA) technical and management certification requirements. It has been selected by the staff recruiters at Hitachi Information Systems (Japan) and many U.S. government contractors such as Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), General Dynamics and Northrop Grumman and many more. Typical job titles for Security+ certified professionals are: Security Engineer, Security Consultant, Network Administrator and Information Assurance (IA) Technician or Manager.
Good to know about CompTIA recertification:
CompTIA A+, Network+ and Security+ certifications will be valid for three years from the date the candidate is certified. After the three years renewal will be required although there are a few ways around this. Instead of recertifying you can earn CEUs and some other certifications, would you take them, can alleviate the need to recertify, for more on this, go to CompTIA. A huge exception to this policy are candidates who certified prior to January 1, 2011. If you did, you are certified for life!
