    Well I failed again for the 2nd time, but my score was better but i should have passed....I ended up doing better on the 3&4 objectives but aparently I fcked up on easy questions...Im pretty sure i would have passed but i screwed up in the ez objectives in 1&2 also if it was the net+ test and not the 90% novel/mac test made by people who dont speak english :dry... 489 needed 554. I plan on taking it in a month and screwing it in its electronic exam butthole. :twisted:

    Nerves can do bad things when you need to pass.

    Maybe try taking a longer aproach to the questions, play the questions out in your head a few times before deciding to answer or mark ones you find hard for review and go back to them at the end.

    I just wish I would get some work experience since I dont have any other ways of getting networking experience since I dont have the resources to do any labs, could have worked at firedog but they were an hour away and I was 17 (last year) :cry:

    Sorry to hear this. You're using very good material to study.........I'm using the same. I think you rushed back too fast to write the exam. Its good to hear that you did better in the obj 3 & 4, but you should've spent some more time to THOROUGHLY review ALL the other objs.......especially the ones you missed in the first exam. Make sure you pass almost every question in the practice exams........cuz the program only gives you a few random questions out of a 300-500 database total.

    Client questions especially Netware is always expected, so focus extra energy on those. I plan on writing mine before month end.

    Many of the legit practice exam providers won't even have a question pool that big.

    Trust me. They're some legit commercial companies out there that have CDs loaded with practice exams and lab questions........but as the questions go up so does the price. Mike Meyers had some CDs like that for the A+, but I'm not sure if he does for the Net+........didn't have time to check, but I *believe* he does. Maybe 500 was (is) an exaggeration..........

    I work in the IT certification practice exam industry, so I should know. 8)

    Note that I did say "many", not "all". Some do offer that many questions, like Meyers (though he does only A+ and Net+). But most do not. It takes a long time to craft a detailed high-quality explanation for 500+ questions. So either the quality gets sacrificed, the number of questions gets sacrificed, or the cost to produce it increases greatly... or a combination of the three.

    One thing to consider is whether there are detailed explanations for all of the questions, and whether there are virtual duplicates of questions (with a word or two changed). Always do your research before you buy.
