Tricks for remebering items for Network +

I remember someone saying a while back that they had a bunch of tricks for memorizing things on the Network +. Thought it would benefit some of us that are preparing for the test if we started a thread containing everyone's mnemonics that helped them pass the test.

    All - Application
    People - Pressentation
    Seem - Session
    To - Transport
    Need - Network
    Data - Data link
    Processing - Physical

    Sunscreen is measured with an SPF rating... So, In one of my classes years back we used...

    S - Segments (transport Layer)
    P - Packets (Network Layer)
    F - Frames (Data Link Layer)
    Burn - Bits (Physical Layer)

    Just some quick notes

    TCP, UDP, SPX belong to Transport Layer
    IP, IPX, ICMP, OSPF, RIP belong to Network Layer
    Hardware Address or MAC belong to Data link

    FTP, Telnet, HTTP, SMTP belong to Application layer

    Routers - Network Layer
    Switches and Bridges - Data Link
    Hubs/repeaters - Physical, cabling

    Thanks! It really makes it simple when you have different ways of remembering things.

    There are not a lot of questions dealing with Netware, Mac or Unix but there are some and you do need to know them.

    Know that Netware version 5 is when TCP/IP was used as the default protocol and I beleive that this is where netware also introduced a true GUI.

    Know the differance between RDP and ICA... The main one as far as I know is taht RDP is Windows ONly and ICA supports multiple OS's.

    As I think of some things to post I will try to add to this...

    IMO the most important things to know as far as the exam is concerned is as follows.

    Troubleshooting (What to do in what order and the Command Line commands including their switches)

    OSI Model (The 7 layers and what belongs to each layer)

    Ports (This also can tie into the troubleshooting heavily.... know the basic ports... The test exam on this site does an excellent job with helping you to know these.)

    When reading study material, speak out all acronyms. For example,
    TCP/IP - Transport Control Protocol Internet Protocol
    CSU / DSU - Channel Service Unit / Data Service Unit
    FDDI - Fiber Distributed Data Interface
    WAP - Wireless Access Point

    This helped me remember exactly what they meant.
