  6. To Our Valued Readers: CompTIA’s Network+ certification program has established itself as the premier general networking certification in the IT industry. Sybex is proud to have helped thousands of Network+ candidates prepare for their exam, and we are excited about the opportunity to continue to provide people with the skills they’ll need to succeed in the highly competitive IT industry. CompTIA recently revised the Network+ exam, updating the objectives set, expanding the question pool, and adding select-and-place questions formats, all in an effort to prevent the dreaded paper- certification syndrome, one in which individuals obtain a certification without a thorough under- standing of the technology. Sybex supports this philosophy, as we have always advocated a compre- hensive instructional approach to certification courseware. It has always been Sybex’s mission to teach exam candidates how new technologies work in the real world, not to simply feed them answers to test questions. We’re especially excited about this third edition of our best-selling Network+ Study Guide, as it now sports the new CompTIA Authorized Quality Curriculum (CAQC) logo on the cover. CompTIA developed the CAQC program to help exam candidates make better decisions about which training materials to use, and has established rigorous standards that courseware developers must meet in order to display the CAQC logo. The book you hold in your hands went through a review process that checked for exam objective correlation and instructional design integrity, and we are happy to say that we passed with flying colors! We’re confident that this book will help you, the Network+ exam candidate, succeed in your endeavors. Good luck in pursuit of your Network+ certification!

  8. Acknowledgments It takes many people to put a book together. This will be the third edition of this book, so I can safely say that these people know what they’re doing and that I can count on working with talented people. This book would not exist if it weren’t for my acquisitions and develop- mental editor, Elizabeth Hurley. Thank you for all of your encouragement, support, and continued friendship. I appreciate all of the hard work you con- tribute to each one of my book projects. Additionally, many thanks go to Mae Lum, our book team’s tireless production editor. Kudos to you for jug- gling all sorts of deadlines spanning many projects, for organizing new schedules around new beta release dates, and for basically keeping your eye on the ball for me all of the time. Kudos should also go to Donna Crossman, editor extraordinaire. Thank you for wading through various versions of these chapters each time objectives were changed, added, or eliminated. Additionally, many thanks should go to ICC’s Stacey Loomis and Jim Link, our electronic publishing specialists, for laying out the very pages you see before you. Finally, one last cheer for the proofreaders who checked every last detail before sending the pages to the printer: Emily Hsuan, Laurie O’Connell, David Nash, Nancy Riddiough, Amey Garber and Yariv Rabinovitch. I must also take a moment to recognize the unwavering good work of this book’s technical editor, Andre Paree-Huff. He has faithfully watched over this book from its first edition and is responsible for maintaining its accu- racy. For each edition, including this one, a pool of top-notch technical edi- tors helped out Andre by completing a second full technical edit just before the book was sent to the printer. Bob Gradante, Jutta VanStean, and Louis DiPaola should also be gratefully acknowledged for their fine expertise. I would also like to recognize my wife, family, and friends. My wife, Linda, tirelessly wrote and edited the appendices and kept me on the right track. She was a real trooper because she managed to do that while watching our daughter, Alison, who can be a handful. Thank you to my family and friends who understood when I couldn’t go out or help them with projects because I had to work on the book. I really appreciate that. Finally, thank you, the reader, for purchasing this book. I know that it has all the information in it to help you pass the test. If you have questions about Network+ or this book, feel free to e-mail me at dgroth@practicaltrainingsolutions.com. All of us involved in the book project have worked very hard to make it the best Network+ Study Guide available. I hope you feel the same. Copyright ©2002 SYBEX, Inc., Alameda, CA www.sybex.com

  10. Introduction If you are like the rest of the networking community, you probably have many certifications. Certification is one of the best things you can do for your career in the computer or networking field. It proves that you know what you’re talking about when it comes to the area in which you are certified. In this book, you’ll find out what the Network+ exam is all about. Each chapter covers a part of the exam. At the end of each chapter, there are review questions to help you prepare for the exam. What Is the Network+ Certification? N etwork+ is a certification developed by the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA). This organization exists to provide resources and education for the computer and technology community. This is the same body that developed the A+ exam for computer technicians. Back in 1995, they convened to develop a new certification that tests skills for Information Technology (IT). To ensure industry-wide support, it was sponsored by many IT industry leaders, including: Compaq Computers Digital Equipment Corporation (a part of Compaq) IBM Lotus Microsoft Novell TSS U.S. Robotics US West Wave Technologies Copyright ©2002 SYBEX, Inc., Alameda, CA www.sybex.com
  11. Introduction xxi The Network+ exam was designed to test the skills of network technicians with 18 to 24 months of experience in the field. It tests areas of networking technologies such as the definition of a protocol, the OSI (Open Systems Interconnect) model and its layers, and the concepts of network design and implementation—such as which items are required for a network and the prerequisites for installation. In addition, it covers troubleshooting concepts and how-tos. Why Become Network+ Certified? T he Network+ certification is a relatively new certification, but it is the next certification in a line of CompTIA certifications starting with the A+ certification. Because CompTIA is a well-respected developer of vendor- neutral industry certifications, getting Network+ certified indicates that you are competent in the specific areas tested by Network+. Three major benefits are associated with becoming Network+ certified: Proof of professional achievement Opportunity for advancement Fulfillment of training requirements Proof of Professional Achievement Networking professionals are competing these days to see who can get the most certifications. And because the Network+ certification is broad and it covers the entire field of networking, technicians want this certification rather than only Microsoft or only Novell, for example. Thus, it can be a challenge to prepare for the Network+ exam. Passing the exam, however, certifies that you have achieved a certain level of knowledge about vendor- independent networking-related subjects. Opportunity for Advancement We all like to get ahead in our careers. With advancement comes more responsibility, to be sure, but usually it means more money and greater opportunities. In the information technology area, this usually can be accomplished by obtaining multiple technology certifications, including Network+. Copyright ©2002 SYBEX, Inc., Alameda, CA www.sybex.com
  12. xxii Introduction Network+, because of its wide-reaching industry support, is recognized as a baseline of networking information. Some companies specify that Net- work+ certification will result in a pay raise at review time. And some com- panies specify that Network+ certification, in conjunction with A+ certification, is required either before an employee’s next review or as a con- dition of employment. Fulfillment of Training Requirements A training requirement can be mandated by your employer, as just men- tioned, or it can be required as part of another certification. There has been talk of using the Network+ certification as a prerequisite to, or as part of, other vendors’ certifications. And I think it’s a natural fit. For example, training for both the Novell and the Microsoft certification programs (CNE and MCSE) includes a course in the essential networking technologies. Because the Network+ exam covers network fundamentals and is vendor neutral, it may be a good replacement for the Microsoft or the Novell exam. How to Become Network+ Certified T he simplest way to find out how to become Network+ certified is to take the exam. It is administered by Prometric, with which most of you are familiar if you have taken other computer certification exams, and it is administered by computer. To register to take the exam, call Prometric (not the testing center) at 888-895-6116. You must pay for the exam at registra- tion time with a major credit card (for example, Visa or MasterCard). The standard cost is $185; check CompTIA’s website, as prices may vary. You can also register on the Internet through Prometric at www.prometric.com or www.2test.com. The exam itself consists of approximately 65 questions. You have two- and-a-half hours for the test. At the end of the exam, your score report will be displayed on the screen and printed so that you have a hard copy. Copyright ©2002 SYBEX, Inc., Alameda, CA www.sybex.com
  13. Introduction xxiii Who Should Buy This Book? If you are one of the many people who want to pass the Network+ exam, and pass it confidently, then you should buy this book and use it to study for the exam. The Network+ exam is designed to measure the technical knowledge of networking professionals with 18–24 months of experience in the IT industry. This book was written with one goal in mind: not to just pre- pare you for passing the Network+ exam, but to prepare to you for the chal- lenges of the real IT world. This study guide will do that by describing in detail the concepts on which you’ll be tested. How to Use This Book and CD T his book includes several features that will make studying for the Network+ exam easier. At the beginning of the book (right after this introduction, in fact) is an assessment test that you can use to check your readiness for the actual exam. Take this exam before you start reading the book. It will help you to determine the areas you may need to “brush up” on. You can then focus on these areas while reading the book. The answers to this test appear on a separate page after the last question. Each answer also includes an explanation and a note telling you in which chapter this material appears. In addition, there are review questions at the end of each chapter. As you finish each chapter, answer the questions and then check your answers, which appear on the page after the last question. You can go back and reread the section in the chapter that deals with each question you got wrong to ensure that you know your stuff. On the CD-ROM that is included with this book, there are several “extras” you can use to bolster your exam readiness: Electronic “Flashcards” You can use these 150 flashcard-style ques- tions to review your knowledge of Network+ concepts not only on your PC, but also on your handheld devices. You can download the questions right into your Palm device for quick and convenient reviewing anytime, anywhere, without your PC! Test Engine This portion of the CD-ROM includes all of the questions that appear in this book: the assessment questions at the end of this intro- duction, all of the chapter review questions, and two bonus exams. The Copyright ©2002 SYBEX, Inc., Alameda, CA www.sybex.com
  14. xxiv Introduction book questions will appear similarly to the way they did in the book, and they will also be randomized. The randomized test will allow you to pick a certain number of questions, and it will simulate the actual exam. Combined, these test engine elements will allow you to test your readiness for the real Network+ exam. Full Text of the Book in PDF If you are going to travel but still need to study for the Network+ exam—and you have a laptop with a CD-ROM drive—you can take this entire book with you on the CD-ROM. This book is in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format so it can be easily read on any computer. Exam Objectives In this section, we are going to look at the objectives that the Network+ exam is designed to test. These objectives were developed by a group of networking-industry professionals through the use of an industry-wide job task analysis. CompTIA asked groups of IT professionals to fill out a survey rating the skills they felt were important in their job. The results were grouped into objectives for the exam. Each of these objectives is divided into four domains. The following table indicates the extent to which they are represented in the actual examination. Network+ Certification Domain Areas % of Examination 1.0 Media & Topologies 20% 2.0 Protocols & Standards 25% 3.0 Network Implementation 23% 4.0 Network Support 32% Total 100% This section includes the outline of the exam objectives for the Network+ exam and the weighting of each objective category.
