The CASP exam (which is now a DoD Approved 8570 Baseline Certification as stated in http://iase.disa.mil/eta/iawip/content_pages/iabaseline.html) covers enterprise level security knowledge and practical security configuration. In fact, during the CASP exam you will need to answer some scenario / performance based questions. You can think of it as something in between the Security+ exam and the CISSP exam. The questions are above and beyond the typical multiple choice questions. You will see graphical representations of the topics in the format of, say, network schematic and network maps. You will be presented with packets captured for further analysis as well. We give you knowledge information relevant to the exam specification. To be able to succeed in the real exam, you’ll need to apply your earned knowledge to the question scenarios. This ExamFOCUS book focuses on the more difficult topics that will likely make a difference in exam results. The book is NOT intended to guide you through every single official topic. You should therefore use this book together with other reference books for the best possible preparation outcome.
