CompTIA CySA+ Practice Tests: Exam CS0-001

By: Mike Chapple, David Seidl

Overview of this book

The CompTIA A+ certification is the most popular entry-level IT certification, with over 1 million A+ certified professionals to date. A+ certification is a crucial step in your IT career. Many businesses require this accreditation when hiring computer technicians or validating the skills of current employees. Preparing for the test with the CompTIA CySa+ Practice Tests is sure to create new career opportunities for you. CompTIA CySA+ Practice Tests provides invaluable preparation for the Cybersecurity Analyst exam CS0-001. With 1,000 questions covering 100% of the exam objectives, this book offers a multitude of opportunities for the savvy CySA+ candidate. Prepare more efficiently by working through questions before you begin studying, to find out what you already know—and focus study time only on what you don’t. Test yourself periodically to gauge your progress along the way, and finish up with a ‘dry-run’ of the exam to avoid surprises on the big day. These questions are organized into four full-length tests, plus two bonus practice exams that show you what to expect and help you develop your personal test-taking strategy. Each question includes full explanations to help you understand the reasoning and approach, and reduces the chance of making the same error twice. The CySA+ exam tests your knowledge and skills related to threat management, vulnerability management, cyber incident response, and security architecture and tools. You may think you’re prepared, but are you absolutely positive? This book gives you an idea of how you are likely to perform on the actual exam—while there's still time to review.
