    Default Is the content in MTA Networking Fundamentals 98-366 still relevant or isit outdated?

    I want to learn some basic networking and K find following an exam guide and sitting the exam really helps me, I have concerns that technology has advanced so much since this exam came out that its content is no longer relevant but as I know little about networking I am unsure so would like advice.

    Many Thanks

    The content is still relevant to today's standards. It covers a lot of the basics from topology to specifics of Twisted Pair wiring standards. If you are looking for more in depth information you are better off taking the Network+ which covers more than the basics that the MTA 98-366 covers.

    I have read here as well as other places on the internet that MTA 98-366 along with Comptia Network plus and Cisco CCENT have a lot of overlap so it would make sense to get all 3. It's a-lot of foundational knowledge but when has that ever hurt anyone. Plus you get HR love depending who is looking.

    +1. I would recommend the Network+ over the MTA. I have both but did my MTA back in my apprenticeship, and having done both I would say the Network+ covers a wider range of networking concepts than the MTA does. No need to do both or the CCENT, just go for the Network+ and if you decide to further your career in Networking, do the CCNA afterwards.
