    That is a lot of data.

    Make sure you have installed, updated, created network shares, printer server and add/removed users on Linux, MacOS, Novell, NT4 and 2000. Make sure you run those labs. Dial up servers are a good idea too, but I don't know if they are covered anymore.

    Have experience.

    Read the objectives

    Review the PDF in the TechNotes here, consider an additional source like Meyers or Sybex.

    Is what you posted, correct??? Do you want it proof-read or do you have a specific quetions?

    You can download the objectives at the comptia website. I recommend having 2-3 sources for studying.
    http://certification.comptia.org/resources/objectives.aspx

    Similar to the technotes on this site, you can download cramsessions study guide version. I recommend both.

    Good Luck!

    Get to know the speeds of the cable not sure if you didnt know those because of the ?/s at the end. Also know your troubleshooting cmd's and switches that go along with them. know what ifconfig, and top do. Know what bind and squid is used for and know novell protocals like csfn. I got asked a bit on novell netware and mac osx. You should know some on NTFS security and printer permissions. make sure to know cable lengths and also topoligies. Also know wireless security and what would cause wireless signal to drop or weaken. Know what hardware goes with what layer of osi model like router is layer 3 switch layer 2 and so on. If you know all that then ou should be ok. Once you move onto cisco then its a whole knew ball game. Hope that helps.

    Apparently RapidFire, you missed something on this site. Our members do not condone cheating nor do they support other members who think this is the way to 'earn' certifications. If you ****, you are a cheater, period.

    Learn the material as it pertains to you job and work through it. It takes time, for some years, others it takes a few texts and some conversation on-line with additional white papers.

    If you brain erased it, you likely didn't understand the material well enough in the first place. And since you clearly posted you used a ****, you didn't earn it either.
