  • I would suggest using a combination of all the material you listed. It's all excellent, and each serves its purpose in getting you certified. Maybe use Darril Gibson's book to learn the material with Professor Messer to supplement that. Then proceed…

  • Sorry about the late reply. It's hard for me to say. I feel like the MTA was the easier test, but I had an easier time on the Net+ (and scored better on it) due to the fact that when I took Net+ I spent more time preparing than I did for the MTA.

  • Each test is a randomized 100 questions out of a pool of 1000 possible questions (at the minimum, it could be more). The poster above me is wrong also about the minimum score to pass. Each question is weighted differently, some are worth more points…

  • Used Jean Andrews and Exam Cram... Exam Cram is good enough, hated Jean Andrews' book. Mike Myers is worse
