Test your knowledge of CompTIA’s Network+ exam
In the last installment of our tour through the testing landscape of CompTIA’s warhorse Network+ certification, we started the first part of a self-test practice quiz based on the Network+ (N10-006) certification exam. That initial installment looked at 22 questions about topics beneath the Network Architecture domain.
In this second installment, there are 20 questions on Network Operations, as we continue to mirror the actual weighting of the CompTIA exam (this will be followed by 24 questions on Troubleshooting, and the final installment will consist of 34 questions combining the Network Security and Industry Standards, Practices and Network Theory domains).
