    Default Think I'm ready?

    I've been studying with the Sybex books, online guides, this site, and ExamCram books. I just tried Transcender and Preplogic over the weekend for my first time and immediately scored in the 800's for each attempt. You guys think I'm ready to write the real exam now? I'm psyching myself out (again).

    If you read those books and guides and continue to practice those exams then yes, it sounds like you are ready. I do suggest continuing to use the Transcender and Preplogic exam until you score in the 90+.

    Good luck!

    Default 800's vs 80's

    Thanks for the reply, but I was scoring in the high 90's, like 96% and 98% on the exams which works out to high 800's out of a possible score of 900. Sorry for the confusion.

    Default contradicting answers

    I'm still waiting on a voucher from work in order to write this test, but noticed many answers that don't seem correct.

    Which of the following are classified as Layer 2 devices?
    A) Hub, Switch, Bridge
    B) Switch, Bridge, NIC

    Answer: A). I don't beleive this is correct, since I think Hubs are Layer 1 devices and NICs are Layer 2 devices. My answer would be B)


    Which of the following authentication protocols requires the use of an NTP server to synchronize the workstations date and time with the server?

    A. Kerberos
    B. RADIUS
    C. PAP
    D. MSCHAP

    Answer: A). Some practice exams have been saying that B) is the correct answer and others say A) is correct. Which one is it?


    In order to maximize uptime during a brownout, what type of UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) should be implemented?

    A. Surge
    B. Online
    C. Spike
    D. Standby

    Answer: B). Again some exams say A) is correct whereas others say it's B). I would think it's A) because when you have a power surge, that's when brownouts occur.


    10Base-FX networks have a maximum distance of 3 kilometers. I thought this max was 2kms for 10BaseFX.

    Single mode Gigabit fiber supports distances of 5 kilometers. Again some sources say the longest 1000Base anything is single mode at 2kms.


    Thanks!

    1st answer is definitely B.

    2nd answer is definitely Kerberos. Kerberos requires clocks to be no more than 5 minutes in sync with each other. It's the same way with NTLM, but instead of 5 minutes, it's 30 minutes.

    I believe it's B, not sure though.

    There are two modes that I am aware of when working with UPSs - Online and Standby. Online UPSs allow the devices connected to them to utilize the battery all of the time. When it is plugged in, it simply continually charges the batter. This provides a level of conditioning as well as a quick switch-over time when the power goes out. Stand-by UPSs have a switch-over time from regular power to the battery. Sometimes the time it takes to change over between the battery and power it great potentially causing your system to lose power.

    Yes, a hub is a layer 1 device whereas a NIC has a MAC address associated with it which would then operate at layer 2(or is that wrong? ) . Never seen a question like that but makes you go back to theory and test the grey matter with powers of logic and reasoning
