I just passed my Network+ exam and I can finally relax for a bit. Granted my score was not phenomenal but I can certainly live with it.

Thanks for this site and especially Johan Hiemstra for putting together the Network+ Study Guide.

For those who would like to know what I used:
Network+ class offered at my alma mater (Sats & Sun)
We used Sybex Network+ Study Guide 4th Edition ISBN 0782144063
Network+ 2005 Q&A by Chimborazo, LLC (Not that good)
Measure UP software
Exam Cram 2
Train Signal's CompTIA Network+ with Chris Bryant
Flash cards; my own (Muy important!)

I must say that the text book was good even for being old. The Measure UP software & Exam Cram 2 are basically the same questions and they are ok for studying. A minority of the questions looked a lot like them too (I'm not saying which ones ;) ) Flash cards are indispensable tool for memorizing information. They helped me through college too!

As for the Network+ exam:
Many posts here said that the questions are very poorly written (wordy). I noticed only four questions out of 85. Also, some mentioned that they felt the exam was mainly Novell & Apple based questions. Well, I studying like mad to cover all bases and I only had four questions that covered Unix & Novell. I'm NOT suggesting that one should not study for them as well as Apple. It just proves that the Network+ exam questions pool changes frequently. Besides I don't regret knowing more about various NOS.

I did have about three questions that hit me from out of the blue that I never remember reading. Those questions might have been the non scoring questions CompTIA mentions at the beginning of the test.

So I wish all of you future Network+ exam takers the best of luck, but remember there is NO substitution for hard work!

    Remember that when things seems to be going against you, remember that the plane takes off against the wind and not with it

    Many thanks to all!

    Now, I need to start working on updating my resume.

    The plan is to (hopefully) have my future employer pay for training.
