Our Recommended Resources for the CompTIA CySA+

These are the resources we recommend to prepare for and pass the CompTIA CySA+ certification.

Be sure to also work through a sufficient number of practice exam questions and build plenty of hands-on experience when preparing for the CySA+ exam.

Recommended Resource #1:

CompTIA CySA+ Cybersecurity Analyst Certification Bundle

This bundle covers all of the content on the certification exam and includes a practice exam guide as well. The practice exam guide is fairly good, however the textbook is a great choice to get you ready for the CySA+ certification exam, and I enjoyed reading it. You can get this book from Amazon here.

Recommended Resource #2: 

CompTIA CySA+ Practice Tests

Author Mike Chapple was not playing around when he wrote this practice test guide for the CySA+. The questions here are more difficult and more specific than you’ll likely see on the real exam, but everything is covered and you’ll learn a lot, which is exactly the point. You can get this book from Amazon here. (By using this affiliate link, I may earn a small commission).
