The CompTIA Network+ certification is an industry standard networking certification validating the knowledge of candidates with at least nine months of network on the job experience. Typical candidates are network technicians or PC support techs who want career advancement and to demonstrate their networking knowledge and credentials. The objectives for the exam were created from a survey of over 2,000 networking professionals and a group of subject matter experts.

About the Exam

The Network+ exam was originally created in 1997 and release in 1999. Since then, it has been revised twice, with the most recent revision in 2005. Over 140,000 professionals achieving the Network+ certification worldwide, it is one of the most popular networking certifications available. The certification is accepted as a part of the elective tracks of many of the top certification programs in the world, including those from Microsoft, Novell, Cisco, and HP.
Earning a CompTIA Network+ certification demonstrates that a candidate can describe the features and functions of networking components, and possesses the knowledge and skills needed to install, configure and troubleshoot basic networking hardware, protocols and services. The exam tests technical ability in the areas of media and topologies, protocols and standards, network implementation, and network support.

Benefits of a Network+ Certification

Passing the Network+ certification demonstrates you have the knowledge tested for on the objectives. With its recent 2005 update, wireless and increased ethernet material was added to further increase the certification's usefulness to professionals and companies. All of CompTIA certifications are granted forever so once you pass the exam, your certification won't expire. As you progress through your career, having the Network+ certification will demonstrate your willingness to get certified and show your knowledge of the concepts tested.
Additionally, the Network+ certification is accepted by many vendors for their certification programs. For example, a combination of Network+ and A+ certifications will substitute for an elective in Microsoft's popular MCSA certification. This will provide you an excellent benefit of not having to take another Microsoft exam.
Companies appreciate job candidates who have taken the initiative to get certified to demonstrate their knowledge. In the consulting industry, many clients require A+ and Network+ certification from consultants in order to ensure their knowledge foundation is solid. Many consulting companies cannot bid on contracts without technicians who have achieved these industry standard certifications.

Studying for the Network+ Certification

Preparing for the Network+ certification largely depends on your current base of networking knowledge. If you are fairly new to the IT industry, your preparation effort will be more intense than someone with several years of IT experience. We recommend these preparation methods:
New to industry (6 months experience or less): take a course or buy a good study book. There are many good websites to find Network+ study material, but since you will probably need a lot of the basic concepts, try a book or course to achieve this kind of knowledge.
Modest experience (6 months to 12 months): if you are currently on a helpdesk or providing deskside support, find good study material on the web and complement it with a good study book. (also a That Network site) has a great free Network+ tutorial to help you prepare.
Solid networking experience: if you have a system administration or networking background, review the objectives, run through the tutorial mentioned above, and go take the test.
The Network+ certification can help you succeed in your career, study hard and prepare diligently and you will pass the exam.
