CertBlaster Preps Test Takers for New Network+ Exam with More Than 500 Practice Questions

Books stacked beneath computer

It's well known that IT industry association CompTIA follows a pattern of rigorous renewal with its popular certification exams. Test content is revised and refreshed every three years to keep CompTIA credentials abreast of changes in technology. In March, CompTIA announced the release of the newest version of its Network+ exam.


Now that the revised exam, N10-006, has been in the field for a few months, CertBlaster is ready to help you take aim at the new content and knock your certification (or recertification) attempt out of the park. CertBlaster has released a comprehensive new practice test to help you ensure that your Network+ skills are sharp as a tack.


This is not just any old practice test, either, but a finely-tuned review machine with a fistful of special features. To start with, the new practice test has 538 questions, with a detailed explanation of each correct answer.


The list of other bells and whistles includes five separate Exam Simulations, one for each Network+ knowledge domain. Each of the simulations has the same number of questions that candidates will encounter on the actual Network+ exam, with an exam timer that replicates the actual allowances given in a standard Network+ testing environment.


There are also five Focus Drills, again tied to the five Network+ knowledge domains. The drills help you zero in on key concepts that must be understood to ensure successful testing.


While using CertBlaster, test candidates can access three different user modes, each of which provides a unique exam preparation experience:


Assessment Mode: This environment quizzes the user on his or her existing knowledge of networking to generate a Personal Testing Plan (PTP). The PTP helps you concentrate on areas where your grasp of the principles involved is weakest.

Study Mode: This environments lets users view answers to every questions and provides access to helpful feedback.

Certification Mode: In this environment, the user can take the practice exam just as though walking into a testing center. This is what you'll be faced with on exam day, but you can warm yourself up to the challenges without having to leave the comfort of your own home.


However you choose to engage with the practice materials, CertBlaster tracks your progress throughout, providing an overall score, and also scores for each individual knowledge domain. If your overall score is fairly solid, for example, but your Troubleshooting score is shaky, then you know where to focus your efforts.

Studying up for the quiz concept

Both the Exam Simulations and Focus Drills provide a variety of question types. This helps ensure that candidates aren't just zoning out over one multiple choice question after another, reinforces learning by helping to present information from different angles, and prepares students to tackle the different types of questions that appear in the actual Network+ certification exam.


The five Network+ knowledge domains, listed with the CertBlaster content that directly addresses them, are as follows:


1.0 — Network Architecture (Focus Drill 1: 168 questions)

2.0 — Network Operations (Focus Drill 2: 65 questions)

3.0 — Network Security (Focus Drill 3: 122 questions)

4.0 — Troubleshooting (Focus Drill 4: 59 questions)

5.0 — Industry Standards, Practices, and Network Theory (Focus Drill 5: 124 questions)


Those interested in additional reading on the Network+ overhaul should hop over to CertMag.com. Changes to the exam were highlighted there in a series of articles by Emmett Dulaney:
