Passed my Network + today, first attempt! It was much harder then I anticipated, I will not go into specifics, but I will say there was fewer conceptual questions then I expected. Make sure you study all of the objectives and are ready for a ton of setup and troubleshooting questions.

I am a decent test taker, I completed both 801 and 802 exams with 30+ minutes to spare and 820+ score on both. On the n10-006 I completed the test with 1.5 minutes to spare, with a 771 score.

I used Professor Messer videos and study notes. Keith Barkers book, as well as CBT Nuggets. I used quizlet for study port numbers which was useful. I also did all the ExamCompass tests. I studied exactly 2 months from little knowledge on the topics. I am looking forward to moving on to Security + and then my CCNA!

I will also mention, I had 87 questions with 8 performance based questions. As N+ is vender neutral I did not encounter CISCO IOS questions. Performance questions took a ton of time for me (40 minutes), they were not very difficult for me, just took many precious minutes. I did have a ton of issues with the performance based questions closing out on me while I was working. For instance I close one session windows in the virtual environment, and was kicked out to the beginning. I had trouble dragging things across the screen. I estimate these issues added 3-4 minutes.

    It is a ton of information, I just kept drilling the information from different sources (3 in my case) and further research on problem areas. I found I had issues with WAN Technologies (sonet, etc) so I studied more in this area before I took the test.

    Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.
