How hard is exam?

I'm taking my exam this Saturday and am kind of nervous about the difficulty of the exam.
I started out thinking it would be easy but, then as I studied it seemed as though it wasn't going to be as easy as I thought.
Now I'm not sure. So I'm wondering just how hard is it?

    I found the exam to be moderately difficult. The most important thing for you, is to be confident. Know your common ports and protocols, utilities, topologies, and troubleshooting. I received a lot of scenario questions; given a scenario, diagnose, and resolve any problem. If you can, print out a copy of the Tech Notes from this site. I used them right before I went in as quick reresher. I also used a lot of practice exams, here, and Transcender as well. Good luck.

    If you have severe self doubts, you might want to reschedule.

    You should go in with good confidence. And, when you do go for the exam, read all quetions carefully and be sure you understand them before answering. To me, the most difficult part was reading through and sifting out the things that are pertinent to answering the question--especially on the real-life scenarios.

    Best of luck.

    I passed the exam today. My score was 753.
    The test was moderately difficult, the first 20 questions were hard and then it got pretty easy for the most part.
    Now its onto MCSA.

    i loved the network+ exam. i enjoyed the material and the fact that so few of the questions had appeared in practice tests gave me the opportunity to think.
