I took CompTIA Network+ exam last year; unfortunately, I didn’t pass. I realized that I didn’t know the material well enough to pass the test. I began to re-study Network+ books and re-watch Professor Messer’s Network+ videos, but the material just wasn’t sinking in. This fall (just a few weeks away) I will begin a Cisco 1 class through a local community college. My hope is that getting some hands-on experience in the classroom as well as formal teaching will help to really learn the material. For those interested, the optional textbook for the class is Introduction to Networks v6 Course Booklet.
