I need some opinions. I'm currently A+ certified and would like to know your opinions on the difficulty level of Network+ compared to A+. I have a home network of three computers. How long in your opinions should I study? Thanks in advanced for your inputs!! :winkgrin:

passed the test...got I think..5 or 6 wrong...it is as easy at the A+ just diffrent stuff...learn live and breath the OSI model...get Mark Mansini Passpot for network plus and Sybex virtual trannier for network plus...youll spend about $80 but be well prepared after the fact...also Exam Cram...if the book/software is cheap just make sure it is for the right Network plus test...I think it is in version 2

Welcome, mcgeeb1215!

I have studied for, but not taken the Net+. I think it's going to be pretty easy - but that's based on my experience. ;) What kind of experience do you have?

I think it's probably about the same as the A+ - one of them. The A+ is 2 exams whereas the Net+ is one.

The Net+ is a lot of memorization of material - Obsolete cabling, etc.

Learn the OSI model upside down and backwards - everything in networking (in ethernet at least) is built upon it.

HTH!

Thanks for the input guys. I've done stuff with home networking and that is pretty much it, besides what A+ covers. I've started a prewired network in my house which I've learned from. Well sounds like I'll have to start studying!!

Hey, if you're doing prewire ... you might want to look into pulling some fiber! You can leave it dark for now, but I would be very surprised if in a few years it isn't normal for everything in the home to be fiber capable for networking!

Fiber would be sweet, but I can't afford something like that. How much does all that cost nowadays? Maybe in my next house in a few years. This house I have now isn't worth doing it.

Not sure about the price per foot. But just the cabling is fairly cheap. You probably wouldn't be terminating it right away.
