barely passed Security+ with 796/900.
Studied for a good 3-4 weeks before sitting for online test.

gonna take a 1-week break before starting CISSP study.. this is not gonna be as easy as security+ though.
comptia exams are not easy to me. i took their cloud essentials+ and score 742/900, barely passed as compared to your score.

Is this certificate really useful and sought after in local context?

Passed the exam last month with 808/900. Purchased a self-study bundle from the CompTIA marketplace for around S$1800, came with course material, virtual labs, practice questions,the exam voucher and a free retake if needed (being kiasi,the free retake was the deal clincher)

Useful as a starter, but not enough on its own. Use it as a stepping stone to higher level certifications.

Various packages are available depending on your preferences.
The labs came in handy for answering the performance-based questions on the exam (where they require you to configure simulated devices)

If you want an "affordable" option, check out NP's Cyber Security Essentials short course. Could cost you almost nothing, especially if you have SkillsFuture credits to use.

Considering that the new SY0-601 is coming out sometime in Oct 2020. It is still relevant to take the current SY0-501 and get certified this year for 3 years validity as the new format will also take time to adjust.

Anyone who taken this certification find it useful? I'm currently start studying and planning to take during June 2020.
just take it

i passed it after 3 weeks of grinding of youtube

I did Ngee Cybersecurity Essential to have the exam voucher and 2 weeks after the course using Jason Dion and Professor Messer and went for exam back in Sep. Passed on First attempt, I have to admit that I thought I going to fail due to the performance Test. Got 769.

Book the test and give yourself the deadline or not you never try to finish the com.
Planning to do CySA+ in Jan 2021. Now doing some reading this month. I finishing up the content from Jason Dion.
