    When it comes to CompTIA you can't go wrong with the Sybex books. And if you need lectures Professor Messer is a good resource.

    Out of A+/Net+/Server+/Sec+ exams that I took, I would rate Network+ as the hardest exam, and the only exam that I failed the first time around. You cannot study enough for it.

    Make sure you utilize multiple sources. Good luck.

    Strongly recommend the CBTNuggets course. If you combine the course along with a book and some practice exams you can't go far wrong.

    I have been using ITProTV, what’s the difference between that and CBTNuggets?

    I've heard similar comments from many people. In order of difficulty, MOST difficult to least, I would rank them:
    Network+
    A+902
    A+901
    Security+

    I haven't tried Server+. But everyone I know who has all the first three says the same thing...Security+ is easy compared to the others...

    Really? I heard Network+ is hard but i thought A+ 901 was hard cause its alot to remember, not sure about the 902 i heards it easier compared to the 901. Security+ i would think be the harder one after Network+ but i dont know since i am new to studying for certifications.

    902 was easier for me than 901 was. I just scheduled my Net+ exam for Monday. Then it's on to Sec+ then Proj+ to wrap up my 2nd term @ WGU.
