We're going to be basically using the company objectives and we're going to Teach you those concepts as they map back to the objectives and we're going to do it from foundational all the way up to practical application of some of the concepts that we're going to look at. Now, when it comes to some of the structures here. One of the things that I would recommend is having a couple of additional study materials to help you along your way. And along your journey and one of them here is the CompTIA Security+ All-in-One Exam Guide. This is one that is a great thing to have and a great addition to your just your Your learning toolbox, if you will. Another one that I've been using for many, many years through different iterations of the exam is something known as exam cramp. We're not gonna follow these books to key to the letter, if you will, this is its own independent series, but these books here will help you out tremendously. So, If that's what you're looking forward to, we can't wait to see you in some of the episodes coming up. Yeah, great supplemental resources there, we'll still talk a little bit about the format of the exam what we expect to look at when it comes time to actually sit the test. Itself is short. So let's go ahead and let's go right to comp Tia here we're on comp tias website for the security plus now currently you're going to see that the older objectives series is kind of being sundown and what we're focusing on is the S y 0601 exam. You know, we talked about a little bit about what you know you're going to learn inside of this course. And you can see there's various things, things like attacks, threats, vulnerabilities architecture, design, implementation. Things like operations and incident response we'll talk about things like risk management if you will, governance, risk and compliance. Finally, leading up to the exam itself. Now you can see that this exam went live November 12, 2020. And you can see the Information that it's gonna validate here. There is some assume background knowledge, you have to have a pretty good foundation and basic computing environment such as like an A plus and network communications. It's gonna be important to back that information, so I recommend having some of those books because if you don't have that information under your belt they can help you to back the Fill some of that information that's required. In order to pass the exam. You can see that it's gonna be a maximum of 90 questions could be less. I've seen him sometimes less. I've seen him go right up to the 90 questions. They're gonna be multiple choice multiple answer where they tell you to select to select three, if you will, and performance based questions, such as things like drag and drops and simulations. The length of the test is going to be 90 minutes in a passing score of 750. And that's come to score range from 100 to 900. You can see the languages we're currently going to be in English here. But if you're from Japan and maybe speak Japanese, they also have that language there for you to understand that the price here that we're passing Pointing out is in US dollars converted to your local currency. Check for the available pricing wherever you are located regionally or internationally if you will, but it is going to be 370 US dollars to sit and take this exam. All right awesome stuff. I am super excited about the series because. I know Wes and I both have a big passion for security. If you're watching this, you probably do as well. And we're gonna have a great time. We're gonna learn a lot of really neat technologies and concepts that are gonna help build that knowledge base that we need as a security professional. So we do look forward to seeing you there.
