    I don't recall having too much of any of those on the exam... icon_confused.gif

    Take a look through the posts here and find ones that have a subject with the word "Passed" in it and read through those, most people will post right after passing and usually give some hint as to what they faced on it. Obviously, we can't go into detail, but you should find enough on there to get an idea of what to expect...

    Know that slip is old, ppp is most common, l2tp is for VPN's and uses port 1701.

    You need to know the basics of security protocols only, nothing in depth.
    All things are possible, only believe.

    If you know at least the information in the following TechNotes, you should be able to answer most if not any question you could get on these topics:

    Agreed. Know what they are, why/when they are used, etc. Nothing fancy.

    Comptia has Sec+ for going into details on those.

    thanks guys......

    ....maybe i am just stressing abit because i have my exam soon!
    and the areas mentioned arent my greatest strength!

    i am just going through the exam cram2 question book which comes with 650 questions and some of them look truley in depth! which is why i am starting to worry just a little bit!

    but if the net+ exam is anything like the a+ then the questions wont be greatly indepth at all!

    ....any comments on my last statement?

    Just depends on what you know and what you do. I found Network+ to be a relatively easy exam and I felt the same about A+ (both parts). But I have long history with computers, and I think tackling (not successfully) some CCNA material first, made Net+ even easier to understand.

    You'll be fine, if you are taking practice exams, make sure you are getting 90% or better on those and the real exam will be, I won't say easy, but not as scary...

    Good Luck! :D
