It was harder than I thought.
All my worry about Subnetting.
Subnetting - there were maybe 2 questions. icon_confused.gif
OSI Layers - probably about 10 questions.
A few more on HW and Protocols and at what layer they exist.

Study wireless and fiber stuff.
If you do Windoz - Study MAC and Novell.
Know the ARP, PING, NETSTAT, ETC. Know them well!

Good Luck to all.

On a lighter note:

Remember, when a group of folks graduate from Medical School...
The head of the class is called a Valedictorian, what do you call the last in the class?

You still call him/her a Doctor!!!

Hey, why did the computer go to the Doctor?
He had a virus! Got that one from a first grader!


Yeah, so I do laugh at my own jokes!

Off to the Linux Forum I go...
Ciao and Meow

    Are you going to take advantage of the rollover deal to obtain the CNST Certification as well?

    This is what he was referring to.


    Thanks for clearing that up Silver Bullet :)

    Although to get the CNST you need either an A+ or a CST already... Hope this helps.

    I agree with the MAC and UNIX stuff. I just passed with a 778. But i was pretty blindsided by the MAC stuff. The Meyers book completely glosses over MAC protocols. Everything i've seen, so far, has.

    I my test was heavy on OSI, TCP/IP, and tunneling protocols. Not many scenario at all.
