Well, I passed N10-006 yesterday, if barely, but it was DIFFICULTt!icon_rolleyes.gif I passed CCNA in the past, but I'd say in some ways
Network+ is more difficult to study 'cause the topics are vast and picked quite randomly.
Also, seemingly MOST (I'd say 90%) of the questions were totally new.
Another thing is: I found very few of those "simple questions." What I mean is like,
"What is the port used to assign IPs automatically (=53) " type of questions that take only 5 seconds to answer.
Frankly, I was thinking I'd pass this one easily because I bought Pearson's "approved"
textbook and scored like 95%+ on all practice exams. The real exam is 150% harder. At least the one I took was.

    Well I'd be the first to say. Don't use exam ****. Not really helpful when it comes to learning the stuff long term. The Network+ is not that difficult when it comes to learning networking.

    I thought the CCENT/CCNA was harder than the Network+
