So I've passed a Net+ class in school, last spring.. and i've been reading the Exam Cram book the past few weeks. Right now I'm going over the proprofs.com Net+ study guide

Comptia Network+ Study Guide - Proprofs

I also plan to use some flashcards this weekend with an app I have on my phone...

I was planning to take it in August, but after I purchased the voucher I found out the only available time that was near me, was next week.. SO I'm CRAMMING.

Any ground I may not be covering? I'm feeling pretty good about it so far. Thanks!

    If you score 75 or better on the Network+ test on Comptia's website, I'd say you're ready. If not, study the areas that you're weakest.

    I'm not sure which exam you're taking but if you're taking the N10-005 exam, here are some blog articles you may find useful:

    Hardware Tools: Network+ Hardware Tools

    Connector Types: Network+ Connector Types Practice Test Questions

    Good luck.

    Today's the day! Thanks for the links and advice everyone. I know my ports, OSI model, and I've gotten two consistant 80% on the LABSIM practice exam. I'll take the CompTIA one this morning and see how I do. Oh, and I'm taking the 004

    Be sure and know all of the following:

    Port Numbers and what protocol maps to the port number
    OSI Model
    TCP/IP Model
    IP Address Structures (A, B, C, D, E)
    Private Address Ranges
    Mac Address Structures

    That's all I can think of right now :D
    Goals for 2018: MCSA: Cloud Platform, AWS Solutions Architect, MCSA : Server 2016, MCSE: Messaging

    Just got back, I passed! 755! Not the best score but hey.. pretty good for jamming the majority of that information in my brain within a week. Mostly.. the past 4 days.

    Ports are a must
    Router protocols probably should've covered more in depth
    Glad I went over and memorized Ethernet standards, lengths, bandwidth...

    Ahh I'm just so glad I passed icon_biggrin.gif

    Now what do I go for?!? I took the Sec+ class last spring..

    Congrats on the pass. If you have the Network+ and Security+, do you have an idea about what you enjoy?

    One path is Microsoft such as with the 70-680 exam.

    Another path is Cisco such as with CCNA.

    Well I'm currently taking classes for an associates in Systems security, which interests me. But here I am still trying to get a handle on in depth networking. I have one friend in security telling me to go CCNA, I have another friend in networking telling me to MCITP..

    GAHH!! ahaha..
