I have an employee who needs Net+ but I have read the exam changes soon or in April, when is it? If it's in April, Ill have him do it now considering the time and 550 to pass instead of 720. Please advise when the exam is changed to the 2009 and which Books you suggest for study, thanks!

    From what I understand the Network + 2007 exam the last day is 07/31/2009. You can take the 2009 exam now.

    Can someone confirm Net+ 2007 can still be taken until April 2007 or point me to a link where I can verify?

    I dont want him to study the wrong material and waste his time.

    Probably best to work on the new updated Network+ exam.

    The best recource will probably be:

    Amazon.com: CompTIA Network+ All-in-One Exam Guide, Fourth Edition: Michael Meyers: Books

    The next best recource is probably:

    Amazon.com: CompTIA Network+ Certification Kit: (Exam: N10-004): Todd Lammle, Bill Ferguson, Toby Skandier: Books

    They start coming out in May it seems. The first book listed was suppose to be out this month, but they bumped it back to June.

    Oh yeah, if he wants to still try for the old Network+ test, I'd recommend

    Amazon.com: CompTIA Network+ Certification Kit: (Exam: N10-004): Todd Lammle, Bill Ferguson, Toby Skandier: Books

    Read that book with the exam cram and it should be plenty to pass.

    I just looked over the 2009 objectives and didn't really see anything new from when I took the "2007 Edition" last year. Except for maybe 802.11n. I don't think the material has changed much, probably just revising the questions to throw off brain ****.

    They have added a few things:

    -Routing protocols 1.5 and 1.6
    -A couple additions to WAN and LAN technology
    -They have added wiring distribution
    -Advanced features of a switch (spanning tree, port authentication, ect)
    -More QoS/VoIP
    -Few extra hardware tools added

    These things in the new objectives were not in my older study guides and if mentioned said it was beyond the scope of Network+. But it looks like they are in there now.

    But you are probably right, you can still pass studying for 2007.. probably. I studied for the 2005 version and took the 2007 version and still passed.

    icon_scratch.gifSo why isn't the 'employee' doing this leg work?



    In any case, if he/she is ready, schedule the exam and take it.

    Meyers or Sybex are the best for Net+ and A+ exams. There is also the PDF TechNotes on this site that many enjoy using and some say that is all they needed.

    that particular voucher expires on June 30th, but there are vouchers that expire before & after that date...it has nothing to do with the objectives expiring. The 2005 objective exams will be available until July 31st.
