Helo everybody,
im sooo confused,
im trying to buy one good book that cover all comptia exam objectives, yet I can't decide Which one to buy.
1- mike meyers book (872 pages)
2 exam cram (640 pages )
2- sybex's N+ book (960 pages)

I cant spend a lot of time reading unrelated stuff to the exam, due to time limits

i also have training videos from 1 cbt nuggets 2- mike meyers 3 - IT tv pro 4- infinity skills 5- prof messer ( online videos and notes)

Im also planning to buy INE comptia bundle ( n+,sec+,and cloud + for $160)

so what book you recommends to pass the exam. ( that covers all the objectives) based on your own personal experience.

thank you.

    I would personally recommend Darril Gibson's book. He covers a lot of content in detail and you will see his name mentioned a lot on here. If you want to see the full list of objectives for the Network+ exam, CompTIA have a link. You can use it as a checklist and mark off each section once you feel near 100% confident in:

    https://certification.comptia.org/docs/default-source/exam-objectives/comptia-network-(n10-006)_examobjectives.pdf

    I would also recommend checking out Professor Messers free video course. He has short videos for each objective in the exam and goes into a lot of detail, and you can watch how something is done and follow along.

    If you want to go over any practice exams once you feel ready, Exam Compass is a good free resource that you can test yourself with on short fact-based questions. If you want something a little more structural and closer to the exam conditions, MeasureUps is your best shot.

    As best I can tell, DG only has the practice tests, flash cards and the subnetting tutorial. I don't think he wrote a Network+ book.

    There are also a bunch of "Kindle shorts" for some of the Network+ content. As a bonus, they are free if you are a KindleUnlimited subscriber. Otherwise, each is $2.99.

    Of course, we might all be wrong, and DG has written the perfect book for Network+. If only he would post and say so...

    Hint, hint. Darril, that means you.....

    Darril doesn't have a full study for Network+ however I recommend Todd Lammle's book.

    He explains subnetting very well and easy to understand.

    Please don't buy too many study material. It's a waste of money because you probably won't use all of them.

    To be honest Nisseki is right. I've only briefly looked at Darril's content but I mainly used Professor Messer to pass as it was free. Only took me a month.

    I second the use of Professor Messer video series for the Network+. Was helpful and I learned a few things there that I didn't know before. Know your ACL syntax well.

    I'm using the Exam Cram Net+ book and Professor Messer's videos. I did the same for the A+ tests and that worked out decently. I also had previous knowledge from TestOut, that helped me a TON with the simulation questions I had for both of the A+ tests. I'm hoping the Network+ simulations I did with TestOut will help me with my Net+ test.
