I just passed Network+ with a 750, and I am pretty impressed with my results.

Here's my study material:

1. FastPass
2. Sybex Network+ study guide
3. Streetsmarts Network+
4. Proprofs quiz school
5. http://www.studynotes.net/Quiz_Index.htm
6. http://www.techexams.net/coexams.shtml
7. Preplogic free download network+ exam (comes with voucher)
8. Network Tables (bring this as your cramsheet before you take your test. (don't remember what forum I got this from, but it was very helpful)


From my experience:

- Know patchpanels, punchdowns, MDF, 110 block

    Congrats!

    What is next for you?

    Thanks, most likely its gonna be the MCSE path.

    Congratulations! Good luck with the MCSE it is a bit of a long haul. Just to make sure, you know that the A+/N+ combo only works for the MCSA while the MCSE has stricter requirements for its electives such as Security+ or one of their exams.

    good job right there..........................Good post about ur test experience. I will take the test in 2 weeks......................
    close to MCSA!!

    Yup, most definitely MCSE is a really long haul, and at first I was gonna take MCSA then move on to MCSE. But I figured why not just go for MCSE, and I've really enjoyed having the basis of A+ and Network+.

    Or maybe I should get my CCNA, since its only 2 exams, and then shoot for MCSE. LOL, getting certs is just to addicting.

    You'll more than likely end up getting your MCSA while working on your MCSE, unless you take the harder MCSE core exams before the 290, 291, and client exam.

    If I were you, Id go straight to the W2008 Career. It's just my point of view. As soon I finish My MCSA, I will be working for the Windows Server 08 path..

    This path sounds very good, I might consider acquiring MCSA then W2008. The only problem I have is recruiters love seeing that MCSE title, hopefully the MCSA title will give me some prestige and the W2008 path will give the knowledge to land that Admin job I've been wanting.
