    Just got back, barely passed it, but a pass is a pass. 740 score, 720 needed to pass. Obviously I still need to go over some things, but it's a start.

    Congrats! I just took my Network Plus exam this afternoon after taking and passing Security Plus the first week of November. I passed with the same grade you do, but a pass is a pass. I think I'm onto Server + next! Good luck!

    I thought if you have Security+ you automatically have Network+. Is that not the case?

    No, none of the CompTIA certifications are inclusive of others. CompTIA recommends people take the A+, Network+, and Security+, in that order, but it's not required. It you have the Network+ knowledge or the Network+ certification, the Security+ exam is easier because there is so much networking knowledge requirements in the Security+ exam. From the other side of the coin, if you've passed the Security+ exam, you have a lot of the knowledge required for Network+ so it's not a big leap to study some more and get the Network+.

    From a larger perspective, there is quite a bit of crossover between the A+, Network+, and Security+ exams. For someone taking the exams in order, they really do build on each other and help provide an individual with a solid foundation of knowledge they can use to build on. Whether you move into a Microsoft administration role, a Cisco device role, or an IT security role, you start with a solid knowledge set. People that skip this route often have significant holes in their knowledge that they’re unaware of.

    I barely passed myself 725. I did some light studying and had confidence that my ten years of networking experience would help me. Boy, I almost paid for it.
