    Good luck on your journey! And I agree with what @Johnhe0414 suggested, Professor Messer is a great resource for the Network+ exam. He helped me pass it on my first try.

    I passed! :smiley:

    I just want to say a couple weeks ago I took this exam with no prior studying because I was struggling with one of my WGU classes and was wondering if I was grasping the information or not. I ended up getting a 692 and you need a 720 to pass. Well about a week ago I decided to study for it because I was so close to passing. I watched Jason's videos, I got through about 4 chapters of the exam cram then I just started using the book and Jason's course notes as note correction guides for the practice exams. I set my alarm for the wrong time but luckily randomly woke up and rushed to get ready and did a quick 30 min review.

    On to CySA+

    I've been studying a week. Completely new to IT so I'm learning from complete scratch. Any ideas how long it may take? Seems A LOT to learn.

    Skyliinez92 I'm using the Anthony Sequeira Net+ book (borrowed from a friend so don't have access to the online resources) and been watching Professor Messer and Jason Dion Videos....I do pretty well in the tests at the end of each chapter so far, but not sure that they equate to how the questions in the exam will be.

    Training periods will vary for each individual, based on experience and previous knowledge, but on average it may take someone between 1-3 months for the CompTIA exams. Professor Messer is an invaluable resource to use. Combine that with a book and you should be all set. I would advise that you read the CompTIA Network+ exam objectives carefully. Anything from there could appear in the exam, and if you can tick each one off as you learn them you will be fine.

    You could also use practice tests from ExamCompass as you go along to check your knowledge, but MeasureUp at the end would be great as this closely relates to the style of questions CompTIA will throw at you. If you're scoring above 80% I'd say you are ready. It also gives you detailed responses to correct and incorrect answers, so you can also use this as a learning tool. Good luck on your training.
