    well, i passed!!
    I was aiming for to break the 700 barrier after getting high 600's in A+, but alas, not quite. A pass is a pass however!

    I totally agree with whats been said about N+ requiring slightly more understanding than memorizing (compared to A+). I think this makes it more interesting though, and thats why we should be doing these certs, isn't it?!

    Veteran's Son: I think if you take the same approach and attitude toward your N+ work as you did with A+, then you'll definitely be able to pass - especially with prior knowledge! The exam is of a very similar nature to A+... if you know it then the question takes all of 10 seconds to read and answer! Good luck.

    One more thing; I used the Mike Meyers' book again, but found it to be slightly out of date (especially regarding MAC OS X questions) and incomplete (re: questions on spanning trees, and MACs). This is compared to the A+ book, which covered absolutely everything that came up on the test for me! [both books were a good read though, which is the most important thing.] Who's complaining though - its not as if i could've scored 900/900 anyway!

    I just checked the Network+ official objectives and Spanning Tree Protocol is not mentioned at all. Here's wikipedia's take on them:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanning_Tree_Protocol

    Here's a couple of links from Cisco:

    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk389/tk621/tsd_technology_support_protocol_home.html

    Was this info being presented in the Network+ or were the answers involving STP just red herrings?

    As I suspected. It would be a dirty rotten trick for Comptia to include a concept on their test that isn't included in their official objectives. :wink:

    Well done! I have read your advice for the test-thanks.
    I started to panic about the spanning trees as i have read the Sybex book and making progess on mikes with no mention. :)
