Prep time for self-study Net+

Hi All,

New to the tech exams forum here. I've recently wrapped up the MTA 98-365 Win. Server Administration Fundamentals this past Monday. I've been studying the Mike Meyers hardcover on and off with a good handle on the OSI model, subnetting, etc. Along with the Prof. Messer videos online.

If I were to grind for say 3-4 hours daily, what's a realistic time frame for a pass, but not only a successful pass, but to also retain the information.

I'm still going to skim through the exam materials from my recent pass to really ensure that I've gotten a firm grip, since having the paper saying you know something and forgetting it all when you're speaking to someone at an interview is rather pointless.

Thinking the A+ isn't worthwhile at this point as I have 2-3 yrs. help desk experience at the moment and looking to advance towards a sys. admin role.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

    I have Network+ as part of my 2018 development plan at work. The discount is great, but how good is this material for preparing for the certification?

    Network+ is achievable within a month if you put the time towards it. The exam is full of factual-based questions so it's not that difficult. I suggest going through all of Professor Messers videos and studying the notes you make on them. On the last week, start looking at practice exams. It will give you an idea on what to expect in the exam and whether you are ready or not. MeasureUps is my recommendation for this:

    I also highly recommend you look at the CompTIA Network+ objectives to get an idea of what could be in the exam. If you use it like a checklist and can say you feel confident in each subject, you will be ready for the exam:

    I passed first time following this method (it worked for the Security+ too). I don't see why it won't work for you. Good luck.

    I 100% agree with @skyliinez92 , Last year I passed the Net+ with only a month of Study time from just the Mike Meyers Net+ book.

    My advice would be Professor Messer videos, and the Mike Meyers book. Both are great study resources.

    If you had to choose one book, would it be Mike Meyers or the CompTIA Network+ Deluxe Study Guide and Review Guide?

    For me I went with and don't have any regrets about the Mike Meyers book.

    Ignore @birebella43's post above. **** are disapproved by users on this site and they don't help towards your career. Most people who use **** can't be bothered to put in real study time and will regret it later in life when put to the test in an IT workplace.
