    I have just got there Network+ test software, My is that hard work.. just made me realise that I,ve still a lot of work to do as I only scored 53%.

    There is a lot of troubleshooting questions on the test and goes into a lot of details.

    If anyone is thinking of doing the Network+ I recommend that they get this software before taking the exam for real, Because this test really does show you your weak areas.

    Yes they are an excellent test prep aid. However, they should not be used as the only source for your studies. You should read at least a couple of different good books on the subject, get as much hands on practice as possible and then when you think you are ready to sit the real exam, hit the Transcender. You will almost certainly fail, as they are generally pitched to be slightly tougher than the real exam although you cannot gaurentee that. I was bitten by 70-216 because the Transcender was way too easy in comparison to the beast of an exam which bit me big time.

    Transcender is generally thought of as the "top of the line" in mock testing software but nothing takes the place of actually knowing the material. Keep studying and good luck, mate.

    I'm using both the Sybex and All in one books too.The All in one has the majority of subjects covered but for some reason there's an awefull lot unnecessary gumf in there (imo).The sybex book covers the objectives in a much more direct manner,no faff,just facts.

    I do like the Sybex book, but I find the All In One easier to read and understand.
