    it all depends on how much real world network experience you have. You could be ready in a couple of days or a couple of months or longer.

    You alone can answer that question as each individual learns and retains information differently from one person to the next. However, I think if you have a good test prep mock software i.e. transcender then this also would give you a feel if you're reaching a high mark range.

    Ultimately the aim of a cert is not just to pass the exam but to have gain valuable and applicable knowledge at the end. Best wishes:)

    GBL not got much network experience, except from setting up a couple of home network and couple of training networks for the office, was thinking of buying a a network setup from ebay and practise on that. It has to beat network sims.

    onoski Aye i guess i will get a feel for it after a couple of practise exams. BTW whats the passmark for N+ when i did my A+ back in 97 i did not take my exam until i was getting 85-90% per practise test, but i think i will push for 90-95% this time before i book my exam to be on the safe side.

    you could get virtual PC or vmware and have a virtual network. I run Virtual PC with server 2003 180 day trial and 3 XP 180 day trial virtual workstations from my PC.
