Publisher's Summary

You are moments away from learning the ins and outs of CompTIA Network+ to help you start and advance a career in IT infrastructure!

Certifications are everything in IT. They can make the difference between you being selected for an open job position and being turned down. What better way to truly get ahead of the competition than being certified by the world leader in vendor-neutral IT certification exams, CompTIA. 

With hundreds of companies like IBM, Dell, Canon, Unisys, the US Department of Defense, Toshiba, Apple, and many others insisting on CompTIA qualifications before hiring, it makes perfect sense to make it a priority to enroll for a CompTIA certification exam. 

More precisely, if you wish to pursue a career in IT infrastructure (configuring, managing, and troubleshooting networks), then enrolling for CompTIA Network+ certification should be top on your priority list if you want to get ahead on such topics like TCP/IP, topologies, troubleshooting, subnetting, and more. A CompTIA Network+ certification will not only come in handy during an interview, it will also be very important whenever there is a network emergency, as you will know how to: 

  • Troubleshoot any network problems
  • Configure, manage as well as maintain essential network devices
  • Design as well as implement functional networks
  • Help in the creation of virtualized networks
  • Identify the drawbacks and benefits of different existing network configurations
  • Use devices like switches along with routers for segmenting network traffic and creating resilient networks
  • Etc.

Indeed, CompTIA Network+ certification can make you a darling for any employer that’s keen on ensuring efficient functioning of all networks. 

And this book will introduce you to CompTIA Network+ to help you prepare well for the certification exam and for real world application of everything covered in the certification.

In this book, you will learn:

  • The basics of networks, including what networks are, the different types of networks and their components, network infrastructure as well as the different network topologies
  • How to choose the right topology for your network
  • The backbone of a network, including different network segments
  • Open Systems Interconnection Specifications
  • The different internetworking models and layers
  • The ins and outs of networking devices, including setting them up (configuring), troubleshooting and more
  • The ins and outs of TCP/IP
  • The ins and outs of IP addressing, including the different IP terminology, the hierarchical IP addressing scheme, the different types of IPv4 addresses, private IP addresses, migrating to IPv6 and more
  • How to troubleshoot IP addressing
  • How to create subnets
  • The ins and outs of IP subletting and much more
  • Everything there is to know about network virtualization
  • Wireless networking and security
  • Network threats and vulnerabilities
  • The different types of cables and troubleshooting any arising problems
  • And much more!

The CompTIA Security+ certification is indeed your ticket to becoming a better IT infrastructure professional and will not only help you land the job but also help you to execute it well. 

Lucky for you, this book uses simple, easy-to-follow language to break down the otherwise complex topic into easy to digest points that you can start applying immediately.

Misses the mark

This audio book would look and seem to be exactly what someone pursuing a Network+ certification would want. It misses the mark, however, because it conveys the information in a hard-to-understand manner. Created, most likely, for people in the UK, there are many sections that I finish with a continued scratching of the head. If someone is trying to enter a new environment of technology and networking concepts, they should not also have to hurdle the barrier of difficult to understand content.

Example: The OSI model, which is comprised of different layers, should be named and numbers 1-7, or spoken One through Seven. This book, and its narration, calls every Layer Two device a "Layer a Pair" device, but then calls all other numbers by their actual number. This is both asinine and ridiculous. Another example the use of acronyms. When acronyms, such as HTML, SSL, or DNS are used, we would expect that the following description of them use the words for the letters they represent: Hypertext Markup Language, Secure Socket Layer, and Domain Name Service. This audio book, however, sometimes uses other words that don't even coincide with the appropriate letter, further confusing the listener.

I would stay away from this audio book, especially if you are someone who is trying to Pass the Network+ exam

terrible translation

The translation is almost comical. The content is great, but more thought should been put into translating the text to English.

Good information but poorly written

This book was obviously not written by someone who speaks English very well. That in itself is not a bad thing but it should have been edited by a native speaker. It is very difficult to understand. The information is fine but it is not good writing.

Not for American's

Listened for 30 minutes understood almost nothing, and I have been in I.T. for years, first taking Network+ now. This book was written for people in the U.K. I think the narrator called an IP address an internet proper address. Some serious accent the narrator has, plus many words Americans don't use or relate to. Hard enough learning the material on its own, throw in this "language barrier", and..lol good luck! If you don't speak the Queen's English, this book is not for you. I'm returning immediately!

This book is easy to listen and understand

Good for learning stuff, but you will need additional study material. The test is very troubleshooting oriented and this is NOT enough to just pass.

This book helped me to know deeply

The audio book is a good companion to reenforce video training. I do wish the material was laid out to follow the exam objectives in order but that’s ok, I would skip the subnetting chapter all together, use YouTube.

I think this is a reliable audible for us

This audio book is a very good companion to the videos. It's got some stuff that's NOT in the videos, but surprisingly, some stuff it goes over lightly is gone into in the videos in much more detail.

Lots of Vital Data Accumulated In This Book.

The author has an online course of this subject. I used both for study. The online course is light and the audio book goes into depth on networking. The online course would give me an overview of a subject.

I like the audio book and the information provided, but Mike really needs to cut the information down. The audio book is really long for the information that it provides.

Illustrious achievement book

The audio Book does a good job explaining the binary octets of IP addressing and how to converting them to decimal. Still listening, still learning, always.
