I passed the exam...807!!! The exam was actually easier then i expected. They asked me a ton of question on VoIP, hardware tools, network devices, routing protocols. A few WAN & LAN questions. A few troubleshooting questions.No subnetting questions. very few DNS, Port, OSI model questions. Overall the exam was very straight forward, some questions where worded crazy, but I expected that from Comptia.

Study materials:
Mike Meyers

techexams notes

I just wanted to thank everyone one on this forum for their encouraging words through my Sec+ & Net+ journey. Next stop is CISSP. I am a Network Security person. I wanted to take this exam to become more technical and I think I achieved it (some what...lol).

    Congrats on the pass! CISSP is (as I am sure you know) insanely harder then both Network+ and Security+ combined, so good luck!

    Congrats on the pass! CISSP is on my list for 2011 as well.. I will most likely get the Associate of ISC^2 status until I fulfil the requirements. They have a boot camp class at Fort Gordon that is free to DoD which my boss was talking about going to so if I can tag along I am definitely going to take advantage of it. Buying the AIO CISSP v5 book shortly and will study for several months.

    Also on the 2011 goal list are CCNA, Server+, MCDST, and MCITP EDST7

    Oh that is great. I plan on buying both AIO and CISSP CKB. Maybe CISSP for dummies. I plan to study for at leat 6 months. I wish you the best in all your future plans.

    Congrats on the pass. Looks like you did your homework.
    Network+ and Security+ were both easier than I expected too. Just shows what you can do if you put in the time.
