I recently started studying for Security+ certification, keeping in mind that SY0-501 is going to expire in July 31st 2021 so can someone please suggest which one should I consider SY0-501 or SY0-601? Thank you.
SY0-501 or SY0-601?
Ok. If you're currently studying for the
Sy0-501, I recommend that you continue to do this and get it done. There is time to do it. The certification is still valid for the next 2 to 3 years even as the exam is retired in 7/31/2021. If you're employed and they want you to take the
Sy0-601see if they'll pick up the tab for your study and for the exam for that one. The cool thing is that you're current study will help also with that one too.
If you haven't started any study on the 501. I would then start with the newer 601 exam. Maybe others will post some opinions on this.
