Beware of questions that do not include explanations - many people have identified errors in these and even when there aren't errors, these types of questions encourage you to memorize answers instead of understanding the underlying concepts.* Don't you hate those little asterisks. Normally they mean "forget what you just read, it's not really true." Not so here though. The bank starts with 293 multiple choice practice test questions, but I'm still adding to them. There will be more.** CompTIA identified five domains of objectives for the CompTIA Network+ exam. They are:
  • 1.0 Networking Architecture
  • 2.0 Network Operations
  • 3.0 Network Security
  • 4.0 Troubleshooting
  • 5.0 Industry Standards, Practices, and Network Theory
