9780764516214: Network+ Certification For Dummies (For Dummies (Computers))

CompTIA, the A+, Network+, Server+, i-Net+ – and the vast array of other pluses – certification outfit has revised its certification program for the hard-working network technician with an excellent general knowledge of networks and internetworking technologies. However, unlike other networking certifications, such as MCSE, CNE, or CCNA, Network+ covers all kinds of general network technology knowledge and practices, instead of revolving around just the brand-specific stuff. Apple, Microsoft, Novell, and other manufacturers and their products are included on the Network+ test, making it the true measure of a networking technician's overall grasp of networking and internetworking technology.

Obviously, you're considering Network+ certification for one of the following reasons:

  • You're planning to become Network+ certified no matter what, but you don't quite know how to achieve your goal.
  • You know how valuable Network+ certification is to a network technician's career and advancement.
  • You're wondering just what Network+ certification is all about.
  • You think that reading a Dummies book on the topic would be a fun and entertaining way to learn about computer networks and their components.

If you fit into any of these categories, then Network+ Certification For Dummies, 2nd Edition, is the book for you!

This updated edition is a no-nonsense reference and study guide for the Network+ certification exam. It focuses on the areas likely to be on the exam, plus it gives you a little background information here and there to help you understand some of the more complex concepts and technologies. The focus is to prepare you for the Network+ exam – and not to give you a long and drawn-out dissertation on networking technologies.

Here's just a sampling of what you'll find covered in Network+ Certification For Dummies, 2nd Edition:

  • An overview of the exam, with explanations of basic terminology you'll find on the exam
  • Networking basics you'll need to know, including tools and hardware, operating systems, and client software
  • The OSI model: Putting a network together and testing your network
  • Understanding TCP/IP protocols: Addressing, configuration, and utilities
  • Network security and administration
  • Preventing network problems and troubleshooting problems when they arise
  • Top Ten lists on test day tips and online resources

You'll also find a CD-ROM full of Dummies test prep tools, plus trial versions of shareware programs geared toward preparing you for the Network+ certification exam, including Network+ Prep and PREP! For Network+. There's also a sample test at the back of the book so that you can test your knowledge.

So if you're ready to take the Network+ plunge, Network+ Certification For Dummies, 2nd Edition, can help you become certified in no time – and you may even have a little fun along the way!
