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

C. IDS

D. Honeypot

Free Network+ Practice Test Questions Answer 1

Q. A company wants to ensure that other mail servers on the Internet can locate its company based email server. What type of record is needed?

A. AAAA

B. MX

C. CNAME

D. PTR

Answer: B is correct. An MX (mail exchange) record is used to locate a mail server and would be configured on a Domain Name System (DNS) server.

A is incorrect. An AAAA (IPv6 host) record provides the name to IPv6 address mapping and is used for forward lookups. If you query DNS with the name of the host, DNS responds with the IPv6 address of the host.

C is incorrect. A CNAME (canonical name) record is used to give a host an alias so that it can be resolved with more than one fully qualified domain name (FQDN).

D is incorrect. A PTR (pointer) record is used for reverse lookups where a query to DNS includes the IP address of a host, and the DNS server responds with the name of the host.

Objective: 1.7 Summarize DNS concepts and its components.

Free Network+ Practice Test Questions Answer 2

Q. What can you use to dynamically assign the same IP address to a printer configured as a network device?

A. DNS

B. DHCP reservation

C. SNMP

D. DHCP exclusion

Answer: B is correct. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is used to dynamically assign IP addresses to network devices including network printers that can be configured as DHCP clients. A DHCP reservation maps the IP address to the printer’s media access control (MAC) address. Once a DHCP reservation is configured, DHCP will always issue the same IP address to this printer.

A is incorrect. Domain Name System (DNS) is used to resolve host names to IP addresses with A records (also called host records). DNS can also resolve IP addresses to host names with pointer (PTR) records, but it does not assign IP addresses.

C is incorrect. The Simple Network Management Protocol is used to administer and monitor network devices.

D is incorrect. A DHCP exclusion would be used if the printer is manually assigned an IP address within a DHCP scope and you want to ensure that the address is not issued to any other DHCP clients.

Objective: 2.3 Explain the purpose and properties of DHCP.

Free Network+ Practice Test Questions Answer 3

Q. You are tasked with purchasing some cable and you have a choice between plenum and non-plenum cable. When would you select plenum cable?

A. When complying with fire codes

B. When connecting two similar devices

C. When connecting dissimilar media

D. When protecting against EMI

Answer: A is correct. Plenum-safe rated cable is used to comply with fire codes when a cable runs through a plenum space. A plenum is a space between walls, in false ceilings, and raised floors. Forced air for heating and air conditioning is commonly sent through the plenum and it’s also possible to run cables through the plenum. Cables are covered with a plastic jacket and this plastic jacket on non-plenum-safe cables can emit toxic fumes if burned. Plenum safe cables have a fire retardant jacket and do not emit toxic fumes.

B is incorrect. A crossover cable is used to connect two similar devices, such as two switches that do not support automatic medium dependent interface crossover (MDIX).

C is incorrect. Media converters or transceivers are used to connect dissimilar media such as an Ethernet cable to a fiber cable.

D is incorrect. Fiber is immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Shielded twisted pair (STP) and coax cable are resistant to EMI problems. However, cable identified as plenum-safe is not related to EMI.

Objective: 3.1 Categorize standard media types and associated properties.

Free Network+ Practice Test Questions Answer 4

Q. You are using Cat 5e cables in your network and recently added a 1 Gbps switch. However, several of the computers are not running at 1 Gbps. Of the following choices, what is the best choice to resolve the problem?

A. Replace the cables with CAT 6

B. Verify the cables with a cable certifier

C. Replace the NICs on the computers

D. Check the cables with a toner probe

Answer: B is correct. A cable certifier is the best choice of those given and it will verify the CAT 5e cables are performing at the CAT 5e specifications. It’s possible for a cable that doesn’t fully meet the specifications to work at 100 Mbps but not at 1000 Mbps.

A is incorrect. Cat 5e cables support 1 Gbps so it not necessary to replace all the cables with CAT 6.

C is incorrect. You may want to ensure that the network interface cards (NICs) support the higher speed and are using auto sense (or auto negotiate). Replacing the NICs wouldn’t be the best choice before testing the cables.

D is incorrect. A toner probe is commonly used to locate the end of a cable in another room, or verify continuity of a cable, but it won’t verify that a cable meets specifications.

Objective: 4.2 Given a scenario, use appropriate hardware tools to troubleshoot connectivity issues.

Free Network+ Practice Test Questions Answer 5

Q. Of the following choices, what will raise an alarm about a possible attack but not block it?

A. Port scanner

B. IPS

C. IDS

D. Honeypot

Answer: C is correct. An intrusion detection system (IDS) can detect attacks but is typically passive and will not block it. An active IDS can block an attack, though an active IDS is often called an intrusion prevention system (IPS).

A is incorrect. A port scanner can detect open ports but does not detect attacks.

B is incorrect. An IPS will detect and block an attack to prevent a malicious intrusion.

D is incorrect. A honeypot is a system designed to tempt an attacker with false data. An IDS or IPS will often monitor activity on a honeypot, but the honeypot itself doesn’t raise an alarm.

Objective: 5.6 Categorize different types of network security appliances and methods.
