    Good score

    I thought Network + was much tougher than A+ and Security +

    N2IT Its weird because I have always been able to build computers and I have used cli since I was a child. I remember when the internet was just BBS's and u had to dial into the service. WellI did do half of the MCSE classes in 2000 or 2001. Computers are my passion. Thanks for the comment

    Congrats JayBlisk. I've taken a couple dozen cert exams in my life, and I don't think I've ever made a 100%.

    I am due to take Net+ in the near future.

    How difficult would you say the performance based questions and how many would you estimate was assigned to you?
    I'm concerned I might have to go back an re-learn some mundane Dos commands, such as changing directory, formatting, copying, etc...

    Congratulations on earning your certificate, as well.

    @ hixantum Thanks!!! the performance questions were easy. Study wireless and wiring schemes. Don't want to give to much info because on the nda but they weren't that hard. I didn't have any CLI questions. Just know the OSI and TCP layer models and all the different protocols. Also study the trouble shooting methodology and be able to apply that to solving a network problem. Good luck

    Jay I hear you man.

    Yeah I am more PC, Laptop centric, not much networking knowledge. Some system knowlegde on Unix and Linux midranges. 1 total year of networking monitoring sums up my career in networking lol

    @ N2IT Because of my construction back ground e.g. electrical and building I feel like networking is the right fit for me. I got my friend into IT years ago when I started doing my MCSE and he is the one I was referring to on this tread that is doing the Network integration for Duke Energy. He is mainly doing active directory for them. It a two year contract position. He seem to think I will enjoy networking. I am thinking about doing the project+ cert also. Do u think that would be a good cert to have or should I do the PMP cert? Thanks

    I would pass on the Project + certification. It's one I wish I had never done. If you are interested I would take a course on project management at the local community college or university. If that isn't an option look for a course on line. This will teach you the theory while integrating the real world how to. It will also help get you to the point where you will be able to sythesis the knowledge and apply it to every day situations.

    Since you feel comfortable with pieces of networking it makes a lot of sense to go forward with that skill. I would go for the CCNA next personally. From how I understand it, it has been the most helpful cert from going from call center type work to adminstration and other positions like that.


    A few years ago I ran a poll on which certification was the most instrumental for moving up in your IT career and the results showed it was the CCNA. It wasn't even close.

    @ N2IT I currently do not have any IT work experience and my friend that works for Duke Energy think I should get a Microsoft cert e.g. MCSA 680 & 686. He said I would have to start off doing help desk support before I would be given the opportunity to be a Junior Administrator. What are your thoughts and I do plan on doing the CCNA but he said he didn't do that cert until he had three years of help desk experience. I would be ok with doing help desk support for two years but my passion is for an administration role ultimately. Thank you for your input!
