Im aware there is no subnetting on the net+, you just need to know the classes etc of IPs.. but anything else? im only asking because i had major addressing issues when i took my ccna a few months ago.. and i wouldnt want them to reoccur ..

    You only need to know the classes of IP address...that's it!

    Hello there my friend. OK to answer your question: just know the following classes of IP addressing for the Network+ exam:

    Class A 1-126 (*
    Class B 128-191 (*
    Class C 192-223 (*

    Loopback test 127.x.x.x (you have elimiate this one from the list you are given when answering a question on the exam, don't worry its an easy question).

    Class D and Class E are not tested on the exam! If you want a full explanation of what is on the exam get the exam objectives and mark off the items you have learned when preparing for the exam: http://www.comptia.org/certification/Network/objectives.asp

    * refers to the default subnet mask for the respective Class address.

    Finally, please read the other posts that I have given regarding the Network+ as they contain some excellent study tips! Best of luck with your studies and your exam!

    Kind regards,

    In short you need to be able to identify a MAC or an IPv4 or IPv6 Address from a list given to you in the exam. Please print out the exam objectives at the link I gave in my previous post: its all there in black and white. A must: print the exam objectives, read it and learn it!

    I did not get any questions on IPv6 but I did have to identify a MAC address from a list of four possible choices and there was questions on Class addresses (approximate number of hosts per Class address as well as the other stuff I posted above i.e. ranges and default subnet masks)but since you know that you should do well on those questions.

    Kind regards,
