How to access free content

Note: For now, ignore this section.

You can access the content by just coming to this page and clicking the links below this section. At some point, I’ll be caught up and will implement the method that allows people with the book to answer a question to gain access.

If you have the CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide, there are many additional free resources available to you here.  This includes:

  • Free online labs
  • Additional free practice test questions
  • Some free performance-based questions
  • And other free resources.

These materials are valuable free supplements so you’ll need to register to access this content and prove that you have the book by answering a question.

As an example, you may have to answer a question such as this:

Look at the Table of Contents and locate the Vendor Neutral section in the book. What is the LAST word in that section?

The Vendor Neutral section is right before this section (Free Online Resources). The last sentence in that section is:

“Most mobile devices use either the Apple iOS operating system or the Android operating system and some of the objectives (such as rooting and jailbreaking) focus on these operating systems.”

The last word in that sentence (and the section) is systems. You will then need to enter the word systems as the answerPeople that are guessing because they don’t have the book won’t be able to answer the question. You will.

Careful though.

If you don’t answer the question correctly the first time, you won’t get another chance for another day.

It’s important that you take the time to enter the correct word the first time.

Security+ (SY0-501) Labs

The CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide mentions several labs. This page includes links to all the labs specifically mentioned in the study guide.

Security+ (SY0-501) Extra Practice Test Questions

While the CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide includes a wealth of practice test questions, I wanted to give you some extras that they you could use in your studies. This page includes some sample practice test questions that didn’t make it to the final edit of the book due to space limitations, or that I chose to add later.

It also includes some sample performance-based questions. It’s difficult to adequately demonstrate the performance-based questions in a paperback book. For example, I described drag and drop questions in the CompTIA Security+ Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide. However, many people learn better by doing, and you’ll find many sample performance-based questions so that you can idea of how these are presented on the exam.

Security+ (SY0-501) Resources

While writing the CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide, I came across many valuable references. This page lists the references mentioned in the book, along with many that I used while writing it, but didn’t specifically mention. You won’t necessarily need them, but some people want to dig into the topics deeper and these references will help.
