First of all, a lot of people here keep mentioning you need to know subnetting, while this is indeed true for later on when you gets certs such as the CCNA, I only got one question regarding Subnets or Subnetting on my exam. I think that you have to truly take his advice, in the first chapter of Mike Myers book he says to make sure you read the book twice. This is what I did, and it helped me a real lot to remember, everything that I missed on the first read through was memorized very well. If I had read the book once, did the chapter review questions, and then taken the exam I would have failed, there is no question about it. Basically just heed this warning, make sure you reread the book if you have no Networking experience, if you do have networking experience, one read through should be enough.
I scored a 750, not a huge pass considering that the minimum score to pass is 720 but a pass is a pass. I am also the type of person I am a memorizer, I do not take notes I just reread and continue to look back at the same concepts, until it sinks in. Overall, this is a great book especially for people who are only entering networking, and trying to get a sniff of the IT field. If you have experience I think this book will also be good for you, however be aware that this book in many parts the author is practically holding your hand, and guiding you through, so it may be frustrating if you already know this stuff. I heard Lammle's book is better for those who have experience in the field. Overall, I give this book a good recommendation, and feel that as long as you read the concepts, and do the chapter review questions you will be in great hands. Don't hesitate to pick this one up!
The quizzes after each chapter are 10 question quizzes based on the material covered in said chapter. The questions are only difficult if you didn't read the chapter of course. The questions range from definition questions to scenario based questions. The book comes with a cd that has two Network+ styled exams (practice and final) which will represent what the actual test is like. How close the actual test is it? Well, the difficulty is on up there, but the questions aren't the exact questions you will encounter on the test so you can't cheat.
I highly recommend this book to anyone studying for the Net+ exam. How important is real world experience? Probably very important. I have 2 years of IT experience so far and I have to admit that being able to put the book into practice has helped me with the material. Could someone pass the exam with no real world experience? Sure, but it would be tougher. If you don't have an IT job yet, I recommend setting up a lab at home so you can get your hands on the scenarios mentioned in the book.
The only problem I have with the book is not with the content (because the content is good), but instead with the multiple typos in the quiz sections of the book. I encountered more than one during reading the book.
Mike Myers' Network+ is the perfect middle ground without being a compromise. The things you need to know, really need to know for the exam, are covered. They are approached in a conceptual way with some historical context, which really helps you understand the "why?" of our current networking technologies. But it's also concise enough so that you're not reading and trying to prepare for more than is necessary. The chapters are very well organized and allows you to focus on specific aspects of networking before moving on and covering other aspects. There is nothing on the exam that wasn't covered in this book.
If you have a year or more of networking experience and use this book to study for the exam, you should have no problem passing. I passed with a score of 884 out of 900.
