Passed the Network+ exam 729/720 (Barely passed I know; however,
pass is still a pass)
I mentioned a year ago I would write how I passed.
Materials: 1. Jason Dion course and practice exams
2. Exam Cram book
3. Mike Meyers Practice exams
Firstly, I printed off the exam objectives https://certification.comptia.org/docs/default-source/exam-objectives/comptia-network-(n10-006)_examobjectives.pdf
When I started studying I found it very full on and overwhelmed with all the information I had to take, I ended up studying over a period of 8 months due to work and everyday duties and also not feeling very confident.
At the end of the course I was then onto the practice exams, I was scoring around 75-85% on both practice exams. Still didn’t feel very confident with taking the exam but thought “Well someday I’ll have to take it” I ended up booking.
Test day came around and my exam was booked for 9am, I was
up early to go over notes and to memorise my notes to put onto the plastic notepad.
(Research the test centre, when I had my A+ exam I was in a cubicle on my own,
this time I booked at a different centre, I was in a room with others which was
So the exam started and literally the first 10 questions were so confusing and got me into a panic, I had the feeling of failure and thought OMG what a waste of money and this was way over my head. After the first 10 I got more confident and when I submitted my exam after reviewing most the questions I checked. I couldn’t believe it when “CONGRATULATIONS” appeared on my screen.
Overall I scored 729/720, I probably got those first 10
questions wrong haha, but I passed and now I don’t have to redo this in a hurry.
I found this exam harder than the practice exams, however I passed so it must
of been nervous at the time.
CCNA is next for me.
