    Default Net+

    Hello, I am new here but am finally fully focused on continuing education and this seems like a great resource for info. Love what I've seen so far from the community. I am A+ certified and looking for the Net+, Sec+ etc.
    To keep it basic because I know theres many posts but can anyone adivse the following:

    Net+ 004 vs 005 as far as difficulty? I took college networking class 1 year ago but noticed they updated the test, I will be buying new study materials regardless but have you guys seen higher or lower scores or difficulty ratings?

    Also any recommendations on study materials? I hear good things about Mike Meyers AIO and Prof Messer obviously, any others?

    Finally, does anyone have any info pertaining to the new Healthcare IT professional cert? Is it worth it or not? When can you find a job in that field? What does it pay? Is it permanent or contract?

    Thanks in advance to any and all that respond!

    I wouldn't say that one is more difficult than the other, but there are differences. This blog outlines some of the differences and based on your experience and knowledge level, you may find one or the other easier:

    You may like to browse the "Other CompTIA Certifications" forum (Other CompTIA Certifications Forums), or repost this question there. Also, it's worthwhile mentioning that this is a "certificate" while other certs like A+, Network+, and Security+ are "certifications". Of course that prompts the question "What's the difference between a certificate and a certification?" I don't see any clear explanation anywhere but this page (CompTIA Certificates) lists certificates and it's clear that these certificates are more basic than certifications such as A+, Network+, and Security+.

    HTH,
