I went into the Network+ test overly confident. I read a 2003 Microsoft Network+ (Faster Smarter series) book multiple times, took the included test on CDROM multiple times, read the notes on this website and took the tests multiple times, took the test multiple times, and read the forums here.

By the end of the test, I was positive I had failed. I had 10 minutes left on the clock and decided to finish. 726 Passing score. I should be totally happy, but I am not. The test was totally not straight forward like all the practice tests I had had before.

My test focused on Token Ring, DSL, NetWare protocols, etc. I didnt get one single question related to AppleTalk. Several questions I had never even seen before and figured they were the unscored questions. Lots of stuff regarding MAUs and CSU/DSUs.

Overall I was hoping for a higher score.

    You know, that's how I felt when I passed the A+OS. I had studied several books over and over again, took all the tests I could find, until I was scoring consistantly, 90% or better. I just knew I had failed when I punched the final button. I would have yelled, if there wasn't someone else in another cubicle next to me, when the screen said I passed. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Good job! These exams have poorly worded questions, especially COMPTIA. Remember though, That's why it's a test because they want to test your knowledge in any case scenerio with the least amount of clues. The only way for me to understand a confusing question is to take my time and reread it a few times and go over the answers as well. Process of elimination is key. Not all questions are poorly worded but some are just complex. :D
