So day after day, i study a bit more. I thought I knew most of it. I already got my A+. So one day, i got sick of studying. So I decide to just go for the exam. The big day, Today. Early today. I took the Network+ for the first time. The first few questions scared me. It was hard. Crazy hard.

A few easy ones. Then it went back to hard. I could of sworn i failed the test. I was drinking cherry coke and i had pizza eariler that day for lunch. I felt like throwing it up. That's how bad the test scares me. Even the A+ wasn't that bad. I could hear nothing else but my heart pounding. Like the test will just swallow me up if I made anymore wrong answers.

At the time i finished. I wasn't hopeful anymore. It litterly knocked the **** outta me. I was supprised to see the passing grade was the same grade I got. At least it it got tons of crap off me chest when I saw that passed right on the dot. 554 was passing and 554 was the grade I got. Just typing this out feels like some of that weight that was on my chest can come back.

Network+ is indeed one of the hardest tests that I've ever taken.

    Cherry Coke? Have a few beers next time, and you'll be much more relaxed drunken_smilie.gif

    Congratulations on the pass, and welcome to the site!

    lol, not sure that's the best advice there dynamik ;)

    I think hard liquor would do the trick better drunken_smilie.gif

    Congrats on the pass! That was definitely a close one. :)

    thank dudes, i used the mike meyer's network+ book and a few stuff from this site.

    Honestly, I think the Mike Meyer's Network+ book is a bit outdated for the stuff I was asked on the 2007 Network+ exam. I was really standing no the edge of the cliff at that test. One more step would of made me fall to my doom. I strongest suggest anyone taking the Network+ exam to study more then just Mike Meyer's Network+ book.

    The book is good and explains it a lot better then many other books, but it is a bit outdated so it won't have everything in it.

    One last question, should i go for security+ next or jump straight to studying for MCP?

    I'd personally go straight for the Security+ as it will make use of a fair bit of the knowledge that you picked up doing the Network+. Just be sure to study multiple books for that one! :D

    Congratz, as they say (my father-in-law at least) the min wouldn't be the min if it wasn't good enough. Good luck with whatever you decide to do next.

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?

    Heh, 'just enough' is all you need. Congratulations on the pass. I'd recommend getting a little bit of a broader set of skills and experience before tackling Security+, like the MCP path, Linux+, CCNA, or something along those lines. You can still take Security+ at any time, but you get more out of it when you bring lots of "regular" admin-knowledge to the table.
