    Two questions, guys ...


    1.) Is it as easy as it seems ?

    2.) Is it adaptive ?

    I assume you've already visited CompTIA's site for the official info and that you're studying from some sort of "Network+" Study Guide so you are in full possession of the content areas being tested. That being said:

    1. Easy is a relative term. It's a generalist networking cert, so you have to know a little about networking everything, as opposed to networking just Windows machines or just Cisco devices. I passed and I'm not a genius.

    2. It's not adaptive. You get a fixed number of questions. 72 questions as a matter of fact. Here's the URL to CompTIA's Network+ FAQ for the inside track: http://www.comptia.org/certification/Network/faqs.asp Hope this helps.

    1.) Yes! It is a basic exam know your ports, know your connectors, know your topology.

    I felt the exam was written by a 5 year old some of the question made little sense at all and the diagrams are very, very poor. There is no oppertunity to comment on the questions at the end of the exam. I did e-mail CompTIA so request that somebody got in touch I am still waiting a reply :!:

    2.) No. As trip said 72 questions BUT not all count towards the final score as they Beta test questions.

    Good Luck

    Thanks, Guys

    I'm using the Sybex study guid which is a breeze to read and understand, and with 210 and 215 down, I feel that this is not asking too much of me.

    Just don't want to get caught out by complaceny, though

    Anyway, where was I ? Ah yes, 21 FTP, 23 Telnet, 25 SMTP, 3f8h,2f8h,3e8h,2e8h, Application, presenta..... :hammert

    Hi monk,

    Yup - third edition, and very readable, but given my current study schedule, easily forgotten as well.

    I'm gonna bite the bullet and book for next month, so I'll let you know ...

    I'm also using Cramsessions notes as well - they are EXCELLENT for prepping after the book (I hope..) so all in all, should hopefully be ready ... :eek:

    SITUATION UPDATE:

    So after several delays in the last month, the bullet has finally been bitten, and the exam is booked for Fri 17th Oct. :eek:

    I'll be using Transcenders and Cramsessions to polish up on the bookwork, so I'll keep you posted .....

    Two weeks and counting. Transcenders is a good choice. I used it when preparing for the Network+ and it provided the right level of difficulty for me. Good luck.

    Thanks, Guys - the only thing worrying me is the resit fee if I blow it - £146 ???? :eek: (Sorry Trip, don't have the conversion to hand :roll: )

    Still, as long as I get my timing right, I'll be ready for it :box2

    Hi Tripwire,

    All the best with your exam. If you've read the books & tried the samples, the exam is a formality.

    We're all behind you.
