Well the time is here. Leaving in 1 hour. I had the same nerves when I took both A+ test. Passed both fine,
even though I swore I bombed the 802. Read Myers book, Messer, and tons of practice test.

Any advice? My nerves are with performance test, and IP questions

    Just take your time and read each question carefully, I remember after going through many exams, some questions ask for 2 chooses. Be very alert

    How did it go? What resources did you use? I am taking mine this coming Monday.

    Had I seen this earlier, I would've suggested flagging the performance questions for last. Hope it went well.

    Oh Heck YA :) .. I passed, but my nerves where shot. 10 Performance questions and none where anything I saw. They where all basically wireless breakdowns, wiring schemes (which I bombed, no idea what they wanted). The best advise to give is skip them, and flag. do them at the end.
    I did the first 3 and took almost 30min, that's when I realized I needed to move on.

    Not much on IP addressing, maybe 3 questions. A ton on cables, the 801.11 etc.. about 5 on setting on a network, I think those where easy.
    a few on Best Practice, A good 8-10 on network layers, all easy multiple choose. they where not on the performance.
    The Port questions where so easy. I was wishing they where on performance. So basic.

    Cheers

    A Job :) no series, I was laid off as a level2 tech analyst with express scripts in april after 10 years.
    I had my original A+ 15 years ago, I got re-certified again, and wanted the NET+ to go with it. im afraid I aint gonna make my previous salary.

    Need to see where I end up first. leaning towards ccna, I have my sec+ material. just feel burned
