Hey Everybody
Up until recently I have been studying with my old N10-002 material,Techexams and the 2005 Comptia Objective list. I thought this would be a good way to save some money since I was recently laid off.
Anyway I broke down and bought a new Network Plus book. The book is by Michael Cross and Laura Hunter. ISBN 1-931836-42-6

I have never seen a book more detailed then this. It really goes in depth on a lot of subjects. Where my Exam Cram book has a lot of short facts, this book gives very detailed answers. I am up to chapter five and and I am very impressed by what I am reading.

Example: Chapter 4 Wireless Technologies,
This chapter goes over what is needed for the test and then goes beyond that with in depth information. I know have the whys to some of the questions I had about wireless networking.

To close, this is a good book.

    Laura Hunter is a detail person so it makes sense that you would find the book interesting. She has been on the net a lot and was awarded Microsoft MVP for her contributions in helping people. I think that you will be much happier rather than studying for the old test and trying to fill in the blanks. good luck
