    Hi All

    I finally passed the Network+ 2009 edition on Friday :D after spending about 9 months studying towards it. I have to say I had hoped to get it done quicker than this but I seemed to struggle to find the time and I have to admit my motivation dipped slightly in January.

    Anyhow I got a score that I am pleased with (846) and in someways I found it easier to study for than the A+ as the material IMO was a bit more engaging. I used the Sybex Deluxe study guide (which I thought was excellent) and CBT nuggets (which helped re-inforce things).

    I am planning on doing the 70-685 next. Is there any disadvantage to me doing this before the 70-680. When I was reading the objectives the 685 seemed more relevant to my role. I realise I will not receive the MCITP until completing both exams and that the MCTS only applies to the 680 however.

    Thanks

    Rach

    Congrats on the pass :)

    Personally I would say do the technology based (TS) exams first, then the job based ones (Pro) as the TS exams will assist with the Pro exams normally :)

    Congrats Rach, I sat mine today and found it far more challenging than I thought it would be.

    I spent a few weeks reading the Myers Network+ AIO and some practice tests though found questions that I don't recall going over (though that may be down to the stupidly long sessions I did).

    Came out with 814 though which is just over 90% as I make it so still pretty chuffed :) Going to go onto 70-680 myself now. Am really tempted to do the MCDST but I can't bring myself to start studying XP even though I've already forked out on the books. Think I'll do the 70-680 and then maybe do the MCDST.... decisions decisions!

    Best of luck to you!
