faintingheartfaintingheart Posts: 256Member
Hi I been studying on and off for the last 13 months now.

I've had taken the exam back in July 2015 and received a 700 failing score. Passing score was 720.

I was discourage and took a 4 to 5 months break.

Now I'm back with more knowledge than last time.

I just don't know if I'm ready to take the exam yet. What do you guys and gal think?

I score 87% on the Mike Meyers practice exam.

and score a 83.33 percent on the Pearson It test certification software.


Am I ready to take the test? I have not book the test yet, but planning to.

Let me know you think, thanks. icon_study.gif

    Have a go at a few of these and see what scores you get. If you're getting high over 80%, you're ready.

    You scored 700 the first time. You should've did a retake a lot sooner. You are ready, so go kill that test. I'm studying for it right now and will be taking it in 4 weeks.

    Bad news guys/gals, I failed the Network+ exam a couple of days ago. I received a score of 657. The exam was pretty hard. It was tougher than last time. I had a tough time not knowing a lot of what this exam was asking for. Do you guys have any advice what I should do now?

    Go over what you feel weak on and take the test again. Also look over the professor messer videos on youtube...

    Print out the list of objectives form the exam topics and go through every single one. Make sure you can explain all of them. That's how I passed. I printed out the objectives and whatever I couldn't explain I wrote it down and committed it to memory. I kept going over the material until I knew all of the objectives. And make sure you know subnetting.

    Did you get a breakdown of what topics you struggled with? Go back and practice them till they become second-nature. If you haven't done so already; watch videos from Professormesser.com and Cybrary.it .

    And as frustrating as it is to fail; don't be deterred. Remain focused on the goal and go at it again.

    Print out the list of objectives form the exam topics and go through every single one. Make sure you can explain all of them.

    Agreed. I used the objectives as a checklist, and marked each one off when I was near 100% sure what it was. Focus on port numbers and subnetting as there where a few questions around those areas. Use Professor Messers videos if you are still unsure about anything. He explains each topic in detail very well.

    Once you have covered those areas do some practice questions. I would suggest using MeasureUps if you are willing to pay out a little. I found that MeasureUps are a lot harder than the real test so if you can get a high score on that, you should do fine. It also explains why the answer was what it is and lets you test yourself on specific topics as well as a certification-style test. You get what you pay for, and not all free tests can be 100% reliable.

    Good luck with your retake.

    If funds are permitting I would invest in Measureup for Network+ go study mode read the explanations then hit exam mode until you achieve a steady high score.

    If you continually make a high score and understand the concepts you will pass. Measureup is more difficult than the actual exam but for Comptia exams I can't fault it.

    Thank you i will purchase measure up asap. I will print out the objective and study as well. Thanks you!

    Just make sure not to use MeasureUp as a primary study source. It's a great tool to practice your knowledge and learn where you go wrong but relying on it too much can cause you to focus too much on a different style of answers and you will end up choosing the answers from remembering them rather than thinking about them. You only have a certain amount of questions provided to you, don't waste them.
