What Other Students Are Saying About My CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501) Course:
I passed the Security+ exam. This course was absolutely essential to passing that exam. Only the Dion Security+ covered the topics comprehensively and thoroughly enough. No other resource I used came close. (Kolya, 5 stars)
I have just completed watching two different instructor corses on the same subject. I must say, Dion's has more information in a better constructed manner. This course is not easy, it is heavy with information and having you sit through shorter videos was the best part. Having watched more than just Dion's, I can say he goes over the content much better. Very glad I chose to watch a second course! (Rutger, 5 stars)
I love taking this wonderful course. It's full of important tips and amazing steps in order to pass CompTIA Security+. Thank you, Jason Dion, for making this incredible course! (Paul, 5 stars)
