Winter holidays are crunch time for many folks. Certification test-takers are no exception, as vendors typically choose the end of the calendar year to retire exams. Those seeking to earn (or renew) their Security+ have until December 31, 2014 to take the older edition of the exam, SY0-301 / JK0-018.

When the newer edition of this exam, SY0-401, was released earlier this year, Robin Abernathy blogged extensively about the changes to the objectives, topic weighting, and method of item delivery, and how these changes would affect your plan of study. If you’re on the fence about whether to knock out the 301 or wait a little longer to sit the 401, her posts may give you the information you need to make that decision:

  • Part One: Depth of topic coverage and item types
  • Part Two: Changes to topics in domains 1, 2, and 3
  • Part Three: Changes to domains 4, 5, and 6, plus new acronyms

You can still purchase the Transcender practice exam for Cert-SY0-301.

On an additional note, CompTIA has announced they will release an updated CASP certification exam, CAS-002, launching on January 20, 2015. The new exam will repleace CAS-001, which will retire in May 2015.
