    I would recommend for you to get as much experience as possible. Download the objectives and possibly get Meyers or Sybex (or both) as well as the PDF techNotes from this site.

    I would then recommend you put faith in yourself and not some material...the exam tests your skills/knowledge and is a base for your future exams that truly will test that you have real-world knowledge.

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?

    I agree with Plantwiz.
    i have 3 sources so far: its Network + all in one by Mike Meyers, Technotes from this site <which is by the way pretty good> and Sybex book "Network +". Ohh...i almost forgot about safaribooksonline. its great sources as well But don't count on just them use the Internet recourses, esspecially good sources are RFC on 802.x wireless. and all 802 standards.

    but your best bet is yourself. Your mind, if you put your mind on passing test, no matter how many times you fail <well it happens to some people it had happened to me i failed 2 times but i 3rd time i did PASS, that all matters> you will PASS

    I passed my 1st test @ prometric. the only difference might be in size of lab, you will be taking a test. I preffer quite place where none bothers me. first time i went to prometric cented @manhattan, didn't like it all too noisy people wandered all in and out. second time went to another prometric center and everything went very smoooth :). size of computer lab can vary.

    good luck

    I would study them both equally and throw in the technotes from this site. I soley used PrepLogic when I took mine, but many of the questions on the actual exam were coming out of leftfield and not covered by Preplogic alone. I had some experience which definitely helped me. Network+ I found to be VERY broad range of questions. They like to throw in some Novell, Apple and Unix/Linux questions. Know your OSI model up and down, right to left, upside down and inverted.

    Good luck.

    I used the technotes here and ExamCram. I think the materials that you have will work well too. The current Network+ objectives have been around long enough to allow time for several different companies to develop good materials. A lot of people like Mike Meyer, ExamCram...etc. Check these forums, people have passed using everything....and some using nothing. Check out the technotes!

    icon_cool.gif TestOut's training sim for Network+ was really good for me. You might wanna try it out if you can. Then hands-on experience is a must. Lastly trust in yourself once you have studied enough.

    cant go wrong with knowing everything about objectives, your map. stick to it

    keep that stickified on your wall throughout your studies, get it down by heart eventually if you look at it enough. you'll spend less time wasting time studying stuff you dont need. once your Net+ certified, you can do more research.
