Net+ Certification

Last Modified: 2010-03-18
I'm looking to become certified as a Network Technician/Administrator. The cheapest school that I have found here in NC is around $1,500.00 plus books and I'm looking at being in class for around 3 months.
I'm already a computer technician and know that this training doesn't take this long or should cost this much.Plus, I need to move fast so I can be certified ASAP to get better job opportunities.

What do you guys recommend to get the best training (FAST) to pass the Net+ Certification test?

thanks to all.....

The easiest way is to have experience. The network+ (when i took it) was very simple. I recommend Network+ Exam Cram. I used the first edition and did very well.


This book is very focused (and short) on the essential information needed to pass the n+


Great...Thanks for the input.I'll get that book.While I'm there, is there a book that you can recommend to help learn how to build,setup and maintain a server?I have a small project that I'm working on also and wanted to see if I could build a server and network about 5-7 computers for internet and other tasks.

This one is on us!
