    Hey guys

    Just wondering if N+ covers DNS at all? This is a subject that I'd like to learn about in more depth!

    My Mike Meyers N+ should arrive in a few days :D :D

    According to CompTIA's Network+ Objectives list, yes, DNS is covered.

    If you have a question about whether a topic is on the exam or not, always, always, always get the information straight from the exam vendor - in this case, CompTIA.

    If you search Google for that sort of information, you very well could end up with outdated information. For example, the Network+ exam was updated in 2005. If you Google information prior to that, you may be getting bad info. That's why you should always go to the vendor Web site directly to get that sort of information - CompTIA, Microsoft, Cisco, Novell, Oracle, etc.

    DNS has a LOT of coverage in Network+. You will learn its use, its implementation, how to troubleshoot it and how to troubleshoot using it and then there are all those sexy little protocols, port numbers etc etc...you're gonna lav it!

    DNS is a huge subject and it really is well worth the effort to learn how it works. personally I found DNS to be one of the most interesting things to learn. TCP/IP the worlds most popular protocol these days relies on it, hence Active Directory relies on it and of course the Internet relies on it.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Mr.Cheeks I've been studying the A+ book but alot of it isn't really relevant to what I want to do. I'm still reading through most of it though, but the N+ interests me more.

    I'll probably end up taking them both though tbh!

    What you want to do sometimes involves going through what you have to do. If you don't already have an IT job, getting the A+ is essential to getting your foot in the door, and sometimes that means getting an entry-level PC tech or help desk job. Certainly the N+ interests most aspiring techs more than PC work does.

    I understand what your saying. i already have a job which is why I'm going for the N+ exam instead as its more in line with what Im actually doing at work.

    I'm still studying A+ though!
