    Hello all...

    Many of you will know who I am :biggrin

    Those of you who don't, count yourselves lucky lol.

    Ok as the title suggests, I am now looking to get the Network + under my belt. I already have the A+ so now I need the N+ for work purposes as my manager and I sat down yesterday and basically we outlined what I need to do between now and Dec. I want to get the exam done probably by Jan at the earliest and Feb at the latest.

    So I need some help. Basically the usual, what books can I read, websites can I practise on, etc.

    Thank you all in advance :biggrin

    Hey this is the one I used. I just passed a few days ago. It's quite lengthy book but has all bases covered. Some short videos accompany the excercises as well.

    However, I think most people on this forum seem to recommend a book by Meyers. Not sure the exact title of the book but I'm sure some of the other guys will probably come up with it in a moment! :biggrin

    I passed as well, today to be exact =)

    2 hours, 100 questions. 80% of the questions were short sentences with single word answers.

    Got 850/900, fumbled on some of the 803/802.xxx type answers (in other words, it plays to be able to distinguish what each of the numbers/standards is and does).

    Overall not bad as I did kind of rush through the Mike Meyers book :oops: I guess +10 years worth of experience helped.
