As a form of motivation and because I’m finding with work being so crazy busy I’m having less and less time to devote to studies. But I’ve made a plan for me (been working this plan for about a month now) to read 2 hours every day either in the morning or at night (considering most nights I don’t go to bed til 11 pm for either work projects or reading) and then wking up at 4 to 6 am to study takes it’s toll on me.
But I’m on the last 5 chapters of review with the CompTIA CASP+ exam and I plan on taking the exam in the last weeks of January, so I’m committed to this journey, not stopping now!
I know this has been a 5+ month charge but I had no idea the CASP book, CAS-003, would have so much technical knowledge in it, moreso than the CompTIA CySA+. I love reading the book but my brain feels like it’s going to explode.
I do feel more relevant and useful in my day-to-day though after reading, labbing, and studying the material and it’s funny all three of those doesn’t even touch that I do use 60% of the CASP’s content daily at my job. So that right there just goes to show how much of it is relevant information.
Recently went to a CompTIA CIO Roundtable discussion in NYC, yesterday in-fact, and it was very interesting to hear CISSP’s talk about cybersecurity and how I don’t really want to be in management-level cybersecurity but actually in the trenches doing the 1’s and 0’s and that is where the CompTIA CASP+ shines. I look forward to the journey in the technical side of cybersecurity.
