Hey Guys,

Have any of you bought the CompTIA Net+ hands on Lab Simulator? Is it worth the 40ish dollars?

    Hey TechnicalJay,

    I can't speak to if it's worth the money, because I just started using it...

    However if you do try it, I highly recommend uninstalling Java before trying to install the sim. It won't finish installing for me until I uninstalled Java and rebooted.

    I got these sims the other day and it spooked me so badly that I rescheduled my exam that was tomorrow for another 3 weeks.

    I blew through the Matching and Drag & Drop areas with no issue thinking I might have just wasted $40, and then I get the simulation section where there are things like configuring port security and setting up static and dynamic routing all with a command line and now I'm concerned. Is *all* of this required to know to pass the test?

    I don't recall specifics like this in the Meyers book or Messer videos and reading the exam objectives is open to interpretation.

    Hello,

    I took the N10-005 a couple of years ago and I made a 606. I believe those are for the Performance Based Questions on the exam.

    I found a video on youtube that gives a preview of this software. Based on what I saw I think this is software will be very helpful in preparing for the exam itself.

    Forgot to mention that this particular vid is for the N10-005 exam. My assumption is that everything still applies as the new software will just include update information.

    Just purchased this last night. I am going to try it today after work. I am eager to use it. I am one of those guys that DO NOT like to read lol. I hope the hands-on labs help me. I am midway through the Mike Meyers All-In-One N10-006 book. It is getting tougher, and my dislike for reading is showing.

    Nice, let me know how you like it.

    Downloaded the sim earlier this evening and so far I like it. A little tricky to get the simulator to actually install but was able to get it going.icon_study.gif

    I just passed Network+ two days back, used this sim for practice, 4 of the PBQs were from this lab. For the price, this is good. I highly recommend this sim since there are not many options available.

    Congrats on passing the exam.icon_thumright.gif

    What other study material did you use in addition to the lab sim?
  • JuneGJuneG Member Posts: 6 ■□□□□□□□□□
    Thank you Jay.
    I used:
    -Examcram
    -Professor Messer's video
    -Mike Myer's video in Lynda.com (Mike's videos are fun to watch, entertaining and his teaching approach is just awesome)
    -Network+ iOS app by Learnzapp (for flash cards, mock tests, review etc, it was worth of $7.99)
    -Examcompass.com Tests
    -CompTIA Net+ hands on Lab Simulator

    I found test to be much harder than expected (atleast for me), i was getting between 92-98% in pre-assessment tests but barely passed the actual test with 739. Better preparation and lots of tests will help to pass.

    I just checked out the Youtube Video clip and it's pretty cool. I am slated to take The Network Plus N10-006 later this year and this seems like a good study resource. Thanks for the tip.
