Network + 005 passed, materials I used

So yesterday I passed the 005 exam after delaying a bit, wanted to make sure I passed. $250 for the exam was something I did not want to waste. But my fears did calm down, scored 890 on it. I used the Mike Meyers book(read it twice) and went thru all the Professor Messer videos, which are extremely helpful.

My biggest concern was subnetting which I studied extra hard for but never got a single question on it. Did anyone else experience this also, no questions on subnetting.

    no, i didn't experience because after studying subnetting, I did as many practice questions as I can, so I have good knowledge of subnetting.

    well not a loss for studying subnetting more in depth, currently working on the Cisco CCENT 640-822 exam. Will be a good refresh for me since its been about 8 years working on cisco routers

    Excellent score, congratulations! :) I took and passed the 05 earlier this month. I received 1 subnetting question.

    They must have changed the exam a good bit. I seem to remember my exam having subnetting all over it.

    Same thing here... Not a single subnetting question, and I took the 004 a few weeks ago.

    Congrats on the pass. Even though you may not have seen direct questions related to subnetting, the knowledge is valuable if you ever work in a network that uses Classless IPs. That's relatively common in larger networks.

    Good luck on your next adventure.

    Wow, that's a great score. I just passed the exam today and did not have any questions on subnetting also. there was a lot of wireless and security questions though.
