    Hi people, long time reader of the forums here... great help and information, but first time poster who needs some assistance please.

    Currently I am using TrainSignal (which by the way is awesome... and Chris Bryant explains things really well) and Netowrk+ book from Sybex. is also pretty damn good Now, in both Windows Server/UNIX and Novell are explained very very briefly. They don't go into details such as address schemes and really any specific protocols that for instance AppleTalk uses. They do explain authentication methods, CSNW/FPNW/GSNW for Novell etc... but overall very very brief for each NOS.

    This has got me worried a little... some people mentioned they got absolutely hammered with Mac, Novell and UNIX questions. You do understand that I don't want specifics to break the CompTIA "code of silence" but I don't want to over study these either as I can use that time to obviously concentrate on other things in the N+ exam.

    Help help ... please :)

    Thank you.

    My experience of Network+ is that not a lot of depth is required for most of it.

    More depth is needed for NETBIOS and TCP/IP, but that reflects their market share.

    Don’t remember too much Apple\UNIX\Novell type questions in the N+.

    Make sure you know what protocols they use and how you would get a Windows PC (running TCP\IP) to talk to a Novell based network. 8)
