Just got done taking my Network+ exam and I passed :) but only with a score of 744 icon_sad.gif. But a pass is a pass I suppose. The simulation questions were absolutely terrible. Actually I take that back... only 2 of the 3 were awful. One of them was so bad I literally had no idea what to do or where to start. The instructions were soooo poor and gave hardly no background info on the situation.

I used the Mike Meyers book and actually the 99 cent exam guide from LearnSmart was a really good study guide. There were tons of wireless questions and quite a few about cable length requirements and such. Make sure you memorize which protocol runs at which layer of the OSI model!

I was surprised I only got 1 port number question which is one thing I spent alot of time memorizing.

Well it's Friday and I passed my exam so it's beer and Borderlands 2 tonight!

    Haha awesome reference and awesome quote.

    Congrats on the pass!! You made any plans for where to go next?
    Even if you "barely" passed the Net+, you got the full credential. And I'm sure it'll be a great stepping stone for the CCNA, should you decide to pursue it.
    Goals for 2018:
    Certs: RHCSA, LFCS: Ubuntu, CNCF CKA, CNCF CKAD | AWS Certified DevOps Engineer, AWS Solutions Architect Pro, AWS Certified Security Specialist, GCP Professional Cloud Architect
    Learn: Terraform, Kubernetes, Prometheus & Golang | Improve: Docker, Python Programming
    To-do | In Progress | Completed

    Thanks for the heads up for the 99 cent manuals. I just got 11 of them just to stock up while they were cheap. Says I saved 340 bucks or so. I used AOL numbers for my phone numbers so no solicitation calls for me. :D
