    Hey, I'm new to the board. Actually found this place the other day before I took my Network+ certification. Just wanted to let everyone know I took my exam today and passed it with ease. Although it shouldn't be underestimated! After passing my CCNA last month, I expected this test to be a breeze; however, it still presented a challenge for me.

    I used the Network+ (fourth edition) by David Groth to study and I also used xxxxxxx.com. The book was great, everything you need to know to ace the test is in that book for those of you who have not taken this exam. xxxxxxxx is a good study guide and good way to learn information, but don't expect the exam to be those questions, because it's not!

    Know your OSI model and all your cable specifications for sure. There's a lot of questions on that. I actually had 1 subnetting question and also had a question about IPv6! It's hard to nit-pick what's on the exam. Bascially read the Network+ study guide book by David Groth and you should be good to go, providing you've had some brief experience! 8)

    Just a heads up people and msethk, xxxxxxxxxx ARE a braindump site. You're not doing yourself any favours by using this material to 'study' from.

    Actually believe it or not, there was a lot of useful information. In my opinion, the "practice questions" helped me to study for this exam. However, I did find a few answers that were wrong. But, I have to agree, don't expect the questions to be the same on the Network+ as the xxxxxxxxxxx worksheets, because there wasn't one that matched up! I would not solely use xxxxxxxxx to study for any test! :D

    Mate, you shouldn't use them at all, because it is considered cheating. End of story!

    Haha, disagree with that one, but whatever you say, bud! I went through the xxxxxxxxx document and it gave me no advantage on the test as I stated above besides memorizing cable specs and stuff like that. Just a good review. Hard for that to be considering cheating! It should be called nothardlylikexxxxxxxxx.com

    Well maybe the braindump you used this time didn't help you to pass but you didn't know that before you sat the exam.

    The next time you chose to include dumps in your studies, it might be a different story and you might see all the questions you have memorised appear on the screen in the testing centre. Is that what you would prefer?

    Anyway, this site has a very strict policy regarding braindumps and you will find most people here understand and agree with that. If you intend to promote the use of such material then I suggest you find another forum to express your views on.

    braindumping is illegal no matter how little or how much you do it. If you get caught by people like microsoft, cisco and comptia they will *strip* you of your certs and be banned for life from getting certified.

    We a honest friendly forum here with a zero tolerance to braindumps and braindumpers - if you going to come make fun of someone who has pointed out that they wrong then you will start having problems here. I hope you understand this is not a threat nor a warning just a complaint from me.
    Bluerinse is a highly respected and knowledged guy who really knows what he is talking about so please dont go on making fun of him.

    Thanks.

    Why don't you just make a site filter to automatically xxxxxxx out words like *well known braindump sites*?

    msethk, take the hint - we don't support braindumps or cheating or degrading of genuine studying whatsoever on CF. I suggest you take the above comments on board.
    We can filter content, but this is currently disabled until the next forum software upgrade. We can filter ads, so please continue to report any dodgy ads you see as normal.

    If we were to filter a phrase like *well known braindump sites* - that would kind of remove the capacity to actually have a discussion like this ??

    HTH - and please keep all the anti-BD feedback live and loud. CertForums wont give braindumps the time of day !!!8)
