Would I recommend this book? Yes.

The book definitely covers all that you need to know for the test. I bought the book, read it once, took notes during a second read through, studied my notes frequently, reread a couple chapters, recopied notes for a couple chapters, took the practice exams that came with the book, and took the practice exam on the CompTIA site (it was for the N10-004 so it wasn't that helpful for this test) over the course of thirty days. I passed on my first try. As far as previous networking experience goes, I've set up home wireless routers, worked in a computer corporation warehouse (long time ago when 10BaseT was current), and have read A+ second and seventh editions (I still haven't taken the A+ certification). Obviously, I had a little catching up to do in the networking arena.

What I found challenging was sorting out all the acronyms. There are nearly 350 acronyms and a lot are very similar. But, once I started associating groups of acronyms to their related networking topic, knowing what they are and , just as important, knowing what they are not, became much easier. Knowing the acronyms, in my opinion, is crucial.

The exam tips in the book are relevant and accurate. Know the OSI and TCP/IP layers, port numbers, cable types, command prompt tools, subnetting, etc. All the information is there. It is just a matter of studying and organizing it all well enough to remember it. My personal tip is "know your acronyms!"

Passing the test really comes down to two things: 1. How experienced you are with networking? and 2. How good are your study skills? This is also covered in the first chapter of the book.

I think most people want to know if the test can be passed with this material. I am proof that it can.

One of the first things you will notice in the book is that it gives a table to help calculate your time of study required. This is very helpful in planning a schedule and setting an exam date. After taking the exam there only seemed to be a handful of questions that were not covered by the material and these could have been unscored seed questions.

The number of acronyms that you must know for the exam is huge. This book includes them and the practice exams will test you on your ability to remember what they are. There are many tables in the book and you need to know this information. For example, know the different types of cabling and connectors, along with their properties. There are vast numbers of diagrams and pictures in the book to help you understand and visualize the information that is being presented.

I found the book to be a fairly easy read. The images and diagrams help to break up the pages a lot better than books that take the wall-of-text approach. Personally, I found that reading 20-45 minutes at a time worked very well and most chapters would take 2-3 such sessions.

I have 8 years of experience in the IT field, mostly Windows server and desktop support. I left the field about 4 years ago. I read this book twice, one month between reads. I also took both practice exams twice. My total time was 46 hours of preparation. I scored 860 on the exam.

If you are new to the field I would still suggest a second text as it often helps to have the material presented in multiple ways. I can not suggest any other books as I have not read any besides this one.

I read this book in 3 weeks, studied for an additional week with the included practice exams from Measureup and passed the Network+ exam with a 90%! I do work in the IT field and had a few years of experience prior to taking the exam and reading this book, but I feel like even the most novice reader would have no trouble at all passing the exam after reading this. Everything is clearly explained and Mike points out certain sections which can be skipped over if you are only wanting to learn what is relevant to the exam. One of the things I liked the most about this book is that you learn real information and not just what you need to pass the exam (although you can read just those sections if you so desire). There are several exam tips highlighted throughout each chapter as you read so you can be sure of what to know when you take the exam. There are 10 multiple choice questions and answers at the end of each chapter so you can check yourself to make sure you read everything. I did all of them immediately after reading the chapter and then went back and re-read anything I missed. The practice exams from Measureup are very valuable. It comes with 2 of them and they are very close to the questions you will see on the Network+ exam. I've read several IT exam books in the past and none of them even come close to the quality of this book. I recommend this to anyone who is looking to pass the Network+ exam or is just wanting to learn more about networking itself. Way to go Mike, thanks for such a great book!

Note: I haven't taken the test yet.

After reading the CCENT textbook I decided to certify in this first while I became familiar with the Cisco IOS. The book is written to be re-read either that or the author has worse ADD than I do. You will constantly be flipping back (and forward) trying to get a solid fundamental understanding. Don't get me wrong this book has definitely taught me a lot but I think it is trying to be a reference book and a textbook at the same time and that to me makes the reader suffer. This is just my opinion.

Now onto the thing I DON'T like. The pdf is not a pdf. It is some form a super hyper encrypted DRM garbage. Seriously anyone could easily download a copy illegally if they wanted so the solution... punish the purchaser. Why is it garbage.
1. You need special software just to download it
2. You need special software to read it on both desktop and your mobile devices

Another thing I don't like is the definitions. In order to get a definition one would turn to the glossary. This is not the case in this book; you have to look all over for a complete term. For example, "Spanning Tree Protocol" has a very vague (and to me incomplete) entry. It's like if I were to define "gasoline" by "makes the car move." In fact you have to look up the term "Bridge Loop" and that is where it defines what STP does. It's almost like every chapter you have to read the text and glossary for all terms in order to learn the true term.
