Hi all.
I definitely recommitted myself for my Network+ . I'm shooting for
Early-Mid January test date and I've already purchase the ExamCram
book. I figure I'll do this book this month, then I'll purchase the
Mike Meyers(super thick book) and do that during the Christmas
holidays. I know everyone says:
Score at least a 90% on your practice exams and use 2 different books.
I'm abiding by those rules.

Basically, what realistic amount of time should i put into this? I have
tried studying by myself, before, but just wasnt' disciplined enough to
do it. I have some experienc with networking(just my 2 home pc's) and
some cabling stuff.

100 hours? 200 hours? Throw me a bone over here

Thx,

It all depends on what you already know. The studying key, IMO, is to
make yourself really curious about subjects you aren't familiar with.
Take IP address classes and submasks, for instance. If you don't get
it, spend time studying them, and researching them on the web.

The key to passing the exam is to know the subject well enough that you
can interpret what CompTIA is trying to ask you.

My employer recently fired their IT specialist and passed his duties off to
me and another guy. Both he and I have been doing rather interesting stuff
ever since. This includes installing networks (running wire, crimping,
server setup) and network devices, configuring firewalls, routers, DNS and
so on and so forth. Not gotten into Exchange servers yet but thats coming.
I'm wondering how involved the Net+ test is? Should it be realitivly easy
for someone thats been doing basic IT for about 4-6 months.

Congrats SBFan.

If you're making cables, and installing/configuring servers, I'm sure
you could pass fairly easily.

In my case, I basically have to do this all in my head. I have made up
my own crossover cables(for testing) and use RG-6 a lot, but rg-59,
fiber etc, it's kinda expensive to get the stuff.

Good luck. I'm still shooting for mid-January test date.
