    Default Passed Network+

    Hello everyone, just dropping by to share my experience with the Network+ exam. After failing my first attempt, I managed to pass just with a 750 with 720 being the passing score. People can say whatever they want but the test is brutal, you have one and a half hour to respond nearly 90 questions and some of them are simulations that take most of your time. And don't forget that every multiple choice question is at least 4 sentences long and most of the time the question is not even clear. I don't know how much of an entry level this cert is anymore, considering how difficult is to pass. My advice if anyone wants to pass is: focus on the simulations, if you do well on those you have high chance to pass. If you don't know an answer flag the question and move on, you don't need to answer all questions right to pass so your job is to secure the ones you know answer to first. After you go through all the questions, go back to every flagged question and do the best you can with the remaining time( unlike Cisco, you can't go back to a question after you answered). Just wanted to share my experience with you guys, don't give up and good luck.

    Great job! Regardless of how easy everyone says they are they are not that easy with limited experience.

    Congrats! Just out of curiosity, why did you go back to get Network+ when you already have a CCENT? It seems like CCNA would have made more sense.

    I know! I know! Hahahaha. But honestly guys, I'm the kind of person who thinks that the more on your resume the better, and I thought I already got my CCENT, how card can a miserable Network+ be? Why not grab this (easy) cert really quick and put it on my resume, it wI'll be a piece of cake. I only studied for a week to get it, but little I knew that it was going to be such a challenge! So I failed, and once you spend the money and the time you don't want it to go to waste, so I tried again and passed. I'm scheduled for my ICND2 on December so don't worry, everything is part of a plan hehehe.

    Thanks! Well, I have the CCNA curriculum from Cisco Network Academy and that's what I used to study. If you can get your hands on Cisco Packet Tracer and practice show commands on the command line interface, that would help you a lot. Learn NAT show commands and interface show commands for the simulations and you should only have to worry about the multiple choice questions. Hope it helps.
