    Its the way they word the questions....you have to really read it through and not assume you know what they are asking.

    Although I havent taken the Network + exam.....The old Novell and MS Certs were very much like that...trying to trick you with the wording of the question.

    Better luck next time

    Is there not trial exams you can practice with??

    Yeah there are

    I was told to download CBT n+ nuggets. 15 hours of video apparently.

    Comptia exams are really difficult ...

    Hey Cider, that's some news that I didn't want to hear! I plan doing N+ in a couple of months and am also doing CCNA. Maybe I ought to postpone N+.

    You know...I just did a sample questions on the website

    http://certification.comptia.org/res...tice_test.aspx

    and got all 10 questions right.....and I havent studied for this stuff in over 10 years when doing my Novell cert...which btw had a networking basics...which this test appears to be similar to

    From what i have heard...the cisco testing is more difficult .

    Comp TIA is a set of 100 questions to be completed in 90 minutes

    or it WAS when I did [and got Security+]
    the trick is to know the subject, because you haven't time to think it through

    it's a simple single line question, and 4 /5 answers
    you have 40 seconds to read / digest and answer

    AND if you MISS a question

    you fail

    so you HAVE to recheck it too
    as it is better to answer all questions with guesses in places

    and Ignat~
    don't put it off
    you will need N+ before you get to CCNA

    I am supposed to do N+ soon
    but it is a finance thing for me at the moment
    price is 200 per in UK
    and a fail means NO resit for 30 days


    CBT nuggets are good
    I have the CCNA ones
    just remember that if you ARE intending to 'do' CCNA soon, it NOW covers IPv6

    Personally I would study for CCNA. It is cheaper to sit than a Comptia exam and it means a lot more to an employer.

    If you study your ass of for CCNA you will also have more than enough knowledge to pass the N+, if you want to spend that much on an exam.. so if after studying you don't feel confident enough to pass CCNA, you can always try N+ instead.

    (CCNA can also be broken down into two different parts too and two exams to increase your chance of passing - both exams together still come in cheaper than a single N+ exam...)

    I run live video tutorials over at the TAZ Zone (link in signature) for CCNA and N+ amongst a whole load of other subjects related to Pen testing - pop along for one that covers areas you are weak in if you like.

    Hey there

    The problem is my work paid for it ...

    I was so sure I was going to make it.

    My colleague tells me that you need like 80% for the MS exams to pass? Is this true ?

    Thanks.
