Subnetting?

Justin-Justin- Member Posts: 300
Hey guys,

I am taking the Network+ exam mid next month and I am still in the process of studying, but I just have a few questions.

On the CompTIA objectives on the site, it says you need to know subnetting. Now, I understand how to do basic subnetting of /8, /16, and /24 but I am unsure if it is needed to know how to thoroughly subnet like in the CCENT/CCNA.

Like would I need to calculate how many hosts are in a subnet,, etc?

Or would it just be basic/simple subnetting?

Also, anyone have any extra tips on what to focus on most in regards to the exam? I hear the OSI model and ports are commonly asked questions.

Hope someone can answer my questions.

Thanks everyone. :)


Justin

    CompTIA exams are vendor neutral, duh right?! But for CompTIA exams have a general overview expectation of topics. Nevertheless, the more you know, the more prepared you are.

    I don't know about the exam since I have not take it. However for CCNA I used this site to study. Just spend an hour answering questions and if you get them wrong it will give you the correct answer. After a while it will just start to make sense.

    Good Luck

    Hi, thanks for the reply @Jon_Cisco

    I will definitely check that site out and practice from there but I'm just looking for someone who has taken the test and knows from first hand experience if they were given questions on subnetting besides the simple questions.

    Thank you though.

    I don't understand how I'm soliciting information?

    I simply asked if the topic of subnetting goes beyond the simple schemes/questions. I haven't read anything that goes further into subnetting in the Exam Cram book that I am using, hence I am asking.

    Justin,what part of your above comment is NOT asking for specifics about the NET +?


    Our members work on integrity and sign the exam NDA. This is not how our forums work. You may ask questions about topics you do not understand to learn and gain clarification. Your questions have been answered about subnetting. Already, anything further, you are putting others and yourself in risk of violating their certification. Asking others about what is on the exam is NOT permitted and this and other rules were shown to you when you signed up to be a member here.

    Perhaps there are other forum on the web that will assist you in cheating, but not here.

    @OP

    You should definitely download the IP Addressing and Subnetting Workbook. It helps a lot.

    If you get stuck in the questions, just watch this video..
