Passed N+ (Barely!)

Just passed N+ (scored 754). This test was hard, I think. Study materials included:
  • Mike Meyers' All-in-one CompTIA Network+ Certification Exam Guide (ebook)
  • Mike Meyers' Network+ video series found on Lynda (via free trial)
  • Professor Messer (only on specific topics or for quick reference)
The book and video series by Mike Meyers was great. If you've never read a Mike Meyers book (I hadn't), watching his videos series made me appreciate his personality and attempts at humor. It's pretty cool to read a book and have a vivid picture of who's breaking it down for you (every published book has an editor, but you know what I mean).His approach is pretty good. He simplifies a lot of complex topics and highlights things you need to know for the exam, specifically. I recommend his book.Professor Messer's video playlist is just way too long. It also puts me to sleep. However, his videos are great when you need to reference a certain topic. I also watched his monthly study guides. I wasn't expecting to get much out of them, but they're actually fun and engaging. I recommend watching one or two. I'll be doing it once I do the CE thing. You know, to get some credits.I studied the material for about two weeks (including all-day weekends) and still struggled. I know passing is passing, but I feel I scored a bit low. I was hoping to knock it out of the park as I had high hopes I would/could excel in networking.I may take my sweet time on ICND1/ICND2.

    Passing the Net+ with two weeks of study is quite an accomplishment.

    Don't feel bad about the score. The most important thing that matters is what you do with your new found knowledge and skill set.
