Prepare for the new or old Network+ exam?

Ok, I had planned on going straight into studying for the Network+ exam after I finish up the second half of my A+ exam. Now I read that they are UPDATING the Network+ exam. icon_eek.gif What do you all think, should I wait until they update the exam before taking the new version? I already have the list of the revised objectives.

    I would take it now. The N+ exam (current one) is pretty easy.

    If you're planning to go straight into studying for it, don't change your plans now. The new Network+ won't be dramatically different, as Network+ is about basic network technologies.

    It seems the new one will be more focused on Network Support and Implementation, and less on Standards and Protocols. (A good thing in my opinion)

    Remember, Network+ is a 'life certification', so no need to re-certify. Also keep in mind that Network+ is entry-level, so do it now and then go on to pursue more advanced certifications.

    Good luck with the studies!

    “We plan to introduce the upgraded certification exam (the version that tests against the 2005 objectives) to coincide with the conclusion of the 2004-2005 academic year,” said Kris Madura, certification program manager, CompTIA.

    I'm waiting for the updated Network+ and diving straight into the MCSA core exams. Even if it is a life time certification an employer may ask which objectives I tested on. I know that's the first question I get when I tell someone I've got my A+. Since I won't be finishing school for another 10 months I figure I may as well get it then and be all up to date with it. Then when I do get my Network+ it will also finish off my MCSA... all with one exam.
