Exam Pass

Last week I passed the Network+ and I wanted to share some of my experiences that may help others in their studies.

My exam began with 3 simulations and was followed by 80 multiple choice questions. For studying I used the CompTIA Network+ N10-005 Authorized Exam Cram and the practice exams that came with it. In order to aid my studies I made a collection of notes as I went along and then typed them up when I was finished the book. I find this kind of repetition helpful for the amount of memorization required on a CompTIA exam.

I wasn't checking techexams daily but I would check back in every few weeks as I found others passing the exam and preparing for it reassuring. I do credit the site for helping me find the resource I needed to begin. I would like to post my own notes, if they're useful to anyone then that is fantastic. I do not guarantee a pass or 100% accuracy, I've been staring at them for a few weeks and by now I'm not sure I would notice anything off. Still, a lot of the information and tables could be beneficial.

Regardless, best of luck to everyone. I have to find a new exam to pursue now.

    This is always the most difficult question for me to answer. I've worked in an IT department for about 7 years now, most of the time it's sysadmin related and while networking is important when it comes up, and I believe the core concepts a requirement for any IT personnel, it's simply not my day to day focus. Database Administration is something that I believe could prove valuable. I've been hardware/network focused most of my life but there is definitely a part of me that wants to experiment with the software side a bit more.

    While I work on figuring that out I may also look at Security+ as many here have fond reviews of it. I did try to look up Darril's book on Amazon.ca but it seems to be out of stock.

    Congratulations on the pass and thanks for sharing your notes with others. Looks like a great document with some very useful notes.

    I wouldn't pay much attention to the amazon.ca notice saying the book is out of stock. It only means that it isn't in stock at a Canadian Amazon warehouse. It's a print on demand book so when you order it, they'll order it.

    Good luck no matter what you decide to do next.

    Thanks I wasn't aware of that, I will pick it up to see if the topic interests me. Even if it doesn't, many jobs are listing it as a requirement. A lot of people are saying it's a one stop resource for passing the exam, so kudos for that.
