I completed CASP+ on Monday and with it the CompTIA cybersecurity pathway. Here are my reviews of the exams from a college student’s perspective; hopefully, they can help anyone else pursuing these certifications!

I’m currently in my 4th year of the computing security BS/MS program at RIT in upstate New York, so I had quite a bit of experience with the concepts covered in these exams going into them. Next, I will probably return to SANS/GIAC for the GCIA or to Cisco for the CyberOps Professional since I have interned in threat intelligence/analysis and am targeting those work roles after graduation.
This community has been a great resource for me! Thanks to you all!
