CompTIA Network+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide, Seventh Edition (Exam N10-007)
By picking up this book, youâ€™ve shown an interest in learning about networking. But be forewarned. The term networking describes a vast field of study, far too large for any single certification, book, or training course to cover. Do you want to configure routers and switches for a living? Do you want to administer a large Windows network at a company? Do you want to install wide area network connections? Do you want to set up Web servers? Do you want to secure networks against attacks?
If youâ€™re considering a CompTIA Network+ certification, you probably donâ€™t yet know exactly what aspect of networking you want to pursue, and thatâ€™s okay! Youâ€™re going to love preparing for the CompTIA Network+ certification.
Attaining CompTIA Network+ certification provides you with four fantastic benefits. First, you get a superb overview of networking that helps you decide what part of the industry youâ€™d like to pursue. Second, it acts as a prerequisite toward other, more advanced certifications. Third, the amount of eye-opening information youâ€™ll gain just makes getting CompTIA Network+ certified plain old fun. Finally, youâ€™ll significantly enhance your opportunity to get a job. Everything seems to be networked today, putting network techs in demand.
Nothing comes close to providing a better overview of networking than CompTIA Network+. The certification covers local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), the Internet (the worldâ€™s largest WAN), security, cabling, and applications in a wide-but-not-too-deep fashion that showcases the many different parts of a network and hopefully tempts you to investigate the aspects that intrigue you by looking into follow-up certifications.
The process of attaining CompTIA Network+ certification will give you a solid foundation in the whole field of networking. Mastering the competencies will help fill in gaps in your knowledge and provide an ongoing series of â€œa-ha!â€ moments of grasping the big picture that make being a tech so much fun.
Ready to learn a lot, grab a great certification, and have fun doing it? Then welcome to CompTIA Network+ certification!

Whoa up there, amigo! Are you one of those folks who either has never heard of the CompTIA Network+ exam or just doesnâ€™t have any real interest in certification? Is your goal only to get a solid handle on networks and a jump start on the basics? Are you looking for that â€œmagic bulletâ€ book that you can read from beginning to end and then start installing and troubleshooting a network? Do you want to know whatâ€™s involved with running network cabling in your walls or getting your new wireless network working? Are you tired of not knowing enough about TCP/IP and how it works? If these types of questions are running through your mind, then rest easyâ€”you have the right book. Like every book with my name, youâ€™ll get solid concepts without pedantic details or broad, meaningless overviews. Youâ€™ll look at real-world networking as performed by real techs. This is a book that understands your needs and goes well beyond the scope of a single certification.
If the CompTIA Network+ exam isnâ€™t for you, you can skip the rest of this Introduction, shift your brain into learn mode, and dive into Chapter 1. But then, if youâ€™re going to have the knowledge, why not get the certification?
What Is CompTIA Network+ Certification?
CompTIA Network+ certification is an industry-wide, vendor-neutral certification program developed and sponsored by the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA). The CompTIA Network+ certification shows that you have a basic competency in the physical support of networking systems and knowledge of the conceptual aspects of networking. To date, many hundreds of thousands of technicians have become CompTIA Network+ certified.
CompTIA Network+ certification enjoys wide recognition throughout the IT industry. At first, it rode in on the coattails of the successful CompTIA A+ certification program, but it now stands on its own in the networking industry and is considered the obvious next step after CompTIA A+ certification. (CompTIA A+ is the certification for PC technicians.)
What Is CompTIA?
CompTIA is a nonprofit, industry trade association based in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, on the outskirts of Chicago. Tens of thousands of computer resellers, value-added resellers, distributors, manufacturers, and training companies from all over the world are members of CompTIA.
CompTIA was founded in 1982. The following year, CompTIA began offering the CompTIA A+ certification exam. CompTIA A+ certification is now widely recognized as the de facto requirement for entrance into the PC industry. Because the CompTIA A+ exam initially covered networking only lightly, CompTIA decided to establish a vendor-neutral test covering basic networking skills. So, in April 1999, CompTIA unveiled the CompTIA Network+ certification exam.
CompTIA provides certifications for a variety of areas in the computer industry, offers opportunities for its members to interact, and represents its membersâ€™ interests to government bodies. CompTIA certifications include CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, and CompTIA Security+, to name a few. Check out the CompTIA Web site at www.comptia.org for details on other certifications.
CompTIA is huge. Virtually every company of consequence in the IT industry is a member of CompTIA: Microsoft, Dell, Cisco â€¦ Name an IT company and itâ€™s probably a member of CompTIA.
