    Default Taking the network + next week

    I have been on and off studying for the network + and icnd 1 for the last 8 months (was not focused enough). I started a network + prep class 2 weeks ago (required for my degree) so I have been studying hard.

    Right now I am have been using the MM Passport book, cbt nuggets videos, and Measure Up practice test. I read the passport book and have used cbt nuggets videos to enforce topics I did not understand. Right now on measureup's I am averaging 95-99% consistently. On the practice test I reviewed areas I was getting wrong and re-read/watched with the book or videos.

    Does this sound like a good plan? I plan on taking the test the 17th. Should I look at any other practice test or just going through the measureups?

    Yes, that all sounds good. I'm assuming that you've been using N10-004 study materials since you started 8 months ago. As long as you plan on taking the N10-004 exam, this all sounds good. I look forward to seeing your post next week saying you've passed.

    Oops yes I have been studying the N10-004 exam. I ended up getting the date bumped to Saturday morning, I wanted to bump up the date because I can get an automatic A for getting my network + in the class I am in now.

    Wish me luck and I will post my score once I have it.

    Do you think the differences between the 004 and 005 are significant enough to cause worry? I've been studying 004 material, but booked a 005 for the 28th!

    I passed with a 853! I was freaking out thinking I did not know the stuff so I answered them all closed my eyes for a second and calmed down then reviewed my answers and felt semi better. So glad I am done with it now onto the Security+.

    Short answer. Yes.

    Long answer. I recently completed an analysis of the differences between the N10-004 and N10-005 exams and posted it here:
    Network+ N10-004 and N10-005 Differences. I don't know your background so don't know if you'll have the extra knowledge to cover the differences, but if you've been studying N10-004 material, I'd suggest you either shift focus to study N10-005 material and fill in the gaps, or change the scheduled exam to N10-004. You can continue to take the N10-004 exam until August.

    HTH,

    Thanks guys for the kind words. Hopefully I can kick out the Security+ quickly. I bought Darill's book for the kindle and also borrow the practice questions through lending.
