The exam environment, questions, and explanations are all very well made. But not even half of the material in the real exam was covered by the boson practice exams. I failed by a few questions on my first try. I got lucky with my score because I was making educated guesses based off of previous knowledge. Most of the exam objectives were not covered by boson at all. I pretty much had to forget everything I learned from the practice exams on the spot then start making guesses during the exam. The book that these practice exams are based on also has some bad reviews on Amazon. Overall, boson is a great tool to use but be careful with new updates to exams because these ones are not up to date with the latest objectives.

Many thanks to Boson, for outstanding quality of CompTIA Security+ SY0-501 test questions.

Even with strong knowledge in subject field, I was able to find some gap areas and structure my understanding of some InfoSec theory.

Passed the exam the first time clearly above the required score. Questions are close to the real exam questions and clearly a lot better than those than in e.g. the Pearson premium editions book. Also a lot better explanations and background info for many questions – an area where the competition falls flat on the face (e.g. answer for option C being right: "option C is correct").

Still. Don't expect every possible question to be included. Aim for an almost optimal score and you will pass.
