    Default Am I ready for Network+ exam?

    So I've been preparing for the network+ exam for months now. I used Mike Meyers Udemy course videos as well as the book that goes along with it. Watched Professor Messer's video series, as well as going back and watching afew of his monthly review course videos and purchased his notes. I purchased Pearsons simulator and Darril Gibsons app (scoring in the 90-100%). Ive taken all of the examcompass practice exams and scored between 85-95% on them. What kind of curveballs should I expect? I want to move on to security+ and paying for a retake just isn't feasible. Am I ready?

    I've not done the network+ so don't take this as written in stone, BUT, if you're consistently scoring 85%+ on practice exams, then you're most likely ready. I was scoring those kind of marks on my CompTIA Linux+ and I passed. Just ensure you fully understand why you're getting the other questions incorrect and you'll be in with a great shot at it.

    Recently based the exam myself on December 19th. In my experience the ExamCompass practice exams are good resources for refreshing your knowledge, but are not comparable to the actual difficulty of the exam. My best advice is to ensure that you are taking practice exams or quizzes from as many sources as possible. You're definitely taking some great steps.

    I used the following practice materials:
    -Mike Meyers Total Sem Tester
    -Quizzes from Mike Meyer's All-in-One Network+ Textbook
    -Professor Messer Quizzes
    -Professor Messer Study Groups
    -ExamCompass.com
    -CrucialExams.com
    -Subnetting.net
    -Transcender Practice Exams

    Generally across the board you should be scoring an average of 90-100% on practice exams/quizzes before you take the official exam. The key is to challenge yourself with multiple sources that come at Networking from different perspectives. In the end this helps you to understand not only why the answers that you chose to a question might be correct. But, why the other alternatives are wrong. You don't have time to go back and forth between answers on the exam. If you feel like correct answers are readily available as you complete practice sessions then I would say go for it, and all of us here wish you the best of luck!

    If you have studied well the main points from each chapter, you should be fine. Please make sure that you have studied well on seven layers of OSI model. That is like the skeleton of everything you should study for Network+. Once you think you have studied well, try testing yourself with sample multiple choices. If you have scored more than 80 percents, you should be fine with that chapter and move onto the next chapter until you have go through every chapter and tested yourself from it. Good luck on your exam!

    I have a good website that features free practice exams and labs for the exam. The URL of the website is www. exam-labs. com. Please feel free to use it to your advantage.
