Hi all !!
I am super excited to share the news of me passing my first CompTIA exam. I am satisfied with the score, although, I could've scored a little more if I hadn't changed a few answers in the last minute :P
I would be happy to give my advice/suggestion to anyone who needs it.

    hi, congrats on your pass

    what are you study methods and what materials do you recommend?

    any advice on what to focus on?

    Hey walter18,

    Thanks! I used CBTnuggets series on Network+ and read network+ Aurthorized guide by Kevin Wallace. It's brevity certainly cut short the studying time, however, I found it didn't cover 1-2 little things and had a couple of typos. Maybe, there's an updated version or an errata is out. I also watched CBTnuggets series on IPv4 subnetting. Keith Barker is an amazing tutor. All in all, I think it took about 100 or so hours from zero knowledge and no experience to a PASS.

    {content may violate NDA removed }

    I wish you all the best if you are preparing for this exam. This exam doesn't go in much depth but has a dauntingly tremendous scope of topics. Feel free to post/PM if you have any questions.

    Congratulations on passing, I've booked my Net+ for the 30th of December and am currently reading through the certified Exam Cram book for it. Do you have any future certification goals following this?

    Thanks for the well wishes, I actually rescheduled for the 6th, my family ended up dropping in for a week over the holidays and I lost a lot of my planned study time.

    I didn't use Gibson's book for Net+. Just the authorize study guide by Kevin Wallace. I am using Gibson's book for Sec+, however. Sorry :s can't help you there.

    Hi guys,

    Congrats on passing the I took Network+ exam. I took mine today I didn't do so great. So far, I have been using the Mike Meyers CompTia Network+ 10-005, and Kevin Wallace latest Network+ Authorization guide, and Keith Barker's CBT Network+ classes which I have completed. Right now, I'm debating whether or to get the exam cram online from as a Kindle Book? Has anyone had any with this book in the following link below:

    oh. Sorry to hear that speedy. Did you get your test report ? What sort of areas did you find the most challenging or needing the most work ?
    I didn't use the Exam cram but I hope someone here can answer your question. I downloaded some apps on my android phone and just went through as many as I could. Also, the questions after every chapter (however few) definitely helped.

    I used that book alone and just passed my Network+ today, I also supplemented with the testing software and Professor Messer Videos. I use the Exam Crams for most exams if there is one. They have a very handy **** sheet/last minute review sheet to look over about 30 minutes prior to the exam. (The Net+ one is longer then the CISSP one by quite a bit) also it includes a coupon code that stacks on top of the ones found here:

    10% Discount Code for CompTIA Certification Exam Vouchers | Pearson IT Certification

    As anguragaks mentioned, in your printout it should tell you where you missed questions, so I suggest brushing up on those items/domains, and then retaking it, don't let it beat you :D Best of luck on your next attempt :D
