Passed Network+ with 831
Passed my Network+ today with an 831. I've been studying for 6-8 weeks using the following resources:
Measure-Up Practice Test
I agree with pretty much what people have been saying on here about Jason Dion's stuff, it's on-par with the test itself. I got a 78% on his practice test, but didn't want to pay the $10 to get the other tests so i just studied what other things i could find online and did fine.

Of course you get the ads if you're using google browser as they own youtube, Google is the king of censorship and data collection, yes your data, why people still use it is a puzzle to me. But then I didnt know about brave a year ago either so...
I use the Brave browser, it blocks their stupid ads free.
Congrats, keep going. YOu might also want to check out Dions video's on Udemy, when they have sales that is. No ads no subscription charges just one time purchase.

ICND1 Passed - 942/832
Just passed this afternoon.
Network Fundamentals 92%
LAN Switching Fundamentals 94%
Routing Fundamentals 80%
Infrastructure Services 67%
Infrastructure Maintenance 75%
I'm pretty new in the IT industry, as I'm only 1.5 years in as an IT Specialist. The first certification I got was the A+. After that, I considered going for the Net+, but after researching the cost/benefit of the CCNA vs Net+, I decided the CCNA would be a better investment. However, since my experience in networking was ZERO, I wanted to deeply understand networking since networking is the backbone of IT and is something that I need to have a solid handle on to be an excellent IT professional. So I committed to this as a long-term, 'take my time and savor the learning process' project, no rush' project. To this end, I held off on studying for the CCNA and instead studied for the Net+ *as if* I were going to take the Net+ exam. I felt that by the end of the Net+ training, I'd be prepared for the CCNA-level training. The only material that I studied with was a Udemy course from Jason Dion:
So for about three months, I was enjoying Jason Dion's Net+ classes, on weeknights after work and sometimes on weekends. I watched 100% of his course and took notes on everything. It's a very well-made course with excellent visual diagrams and Jason excels at explaining networking concepts in layman's terms. So after completing this Jason Dion's Net+ course, I began the CCNA mountain-climb.
Wendell Odom's OCG
David Bombal's Udemy Packet Tracer Course
Chris Bryant's Udemy CCNA Course
Boson ExSim & NetSim
Jeremy Cioara's CBT Nuggets
The first and only book I bought was Wendell Odom's OCG book. I began reading at least a chapter per day. Reading Wendell is a bit encyclopedic, but Wendell does a really good job of breaking concepts down *thoroughly*. It's the kind of reading that is an exercise in itself, with the reward of having very a well-digested understanding of the subject matter. It's very 'chewy' reading. That being said, I couldn't really get into the chapters where he talks about Cisco CLI basics because at the time I didn't have access to any labs or Cisco gear. So I skipped all those chapters and instead focused on networking concepts, theory, etc. Once I completed that, I shifted gears into labbing mode.
*Sidenote: It was around this time that I got the news about Cisco revamping their CCNA exams. This burst my bubble of taking as long as I want to get a really deep understanding of Networking; now I only have several months left to get the CCNA. For fuck's sake, the same damn thing happened to me when I was studying for my A+; the 901/902 exam was getting replaced by the 1001/1002 and I'd already invested substantial time into studying for the 901/902. On the bright side, at least the deadlines in both cases have put enough pressure on me to get the certs sooner than later.*
The first dip into labbing was with Cisco Packet Tracker and David Bombal's PT labbing course on Udemy. David Bombal's course is pretty good. But after a while, his voice started driving me crazy as I couldn't stop thinking in his monotonous, British-with-a-hint-of-disappointed-tone accent in my head. I would literally hear his voice narrating everything I was doing during my own labbing practice and it mildly irritated me. So I switched it up a bit and tried out other online instructors.
That brings me to Chris Bryant's CCNA course on Udemy. I had a much easier time following Chris Bryant and appreciated his sense of humor. I found out Chris Bryant also has a really good Udemy course that focuses entirely on subnetting practice. I *highly* recommend this, it really solidified my subnetting mastery. I can do most subnetting in my head now, no pen and paper needed.
Then I shifted gears into a more serious exam-prep mode and bought Boson NetSim and ExSim. Holy smokes, what a solid (albeit expensive) investment. The NetSims really drill the procedural tasks down into you so often that by the time I finished most of the NetSims for CCENT, I feel like a lot of the CLI commands were embedded into my muscle memory. And then there's the ExSim. By far, the Boson ExSim is probably what really trained me for the CCENT exam the most. Everything else -- from the OCG to the Udemy Courses -- is just to build the framework of knowledge for your brain to perform at it's best come exam day. But the Boson ExSim trains you to *apply* that framework in exam conditions that very closely mirror Cisco's exams, which is valuable in a way that is hard to overstate. And everyone is right when they say Boxon ExSims are harder than the Cisco Exams. And what I find pretty frightening is that I saw so many ways that the ExSims could be ludicrously harder (and yet still fair). So I'm grateful that we live in a world where Cisco is not *that* brutal.
The last two weeks before taking the exam today, I subscribed to CBT Nuggets and listened to all of Jeremy Cioara's CCENT CBT Nuggets. Maximum enthusiasm (maybe a little too amped up on amphetamines). Just what I needed at the time, actually. Watching the videos gave me a contact high and WOO! got me amped up too. It was a very good overview of the concepts that I've learned and labbed about, which quite a few new tips and insights. I'll be looking forward to Jeremy Cioara's CBT Nuggets on ICND2.
One other resource I found in the last month was Professor Messer's Pocket Prep course. It looks like there's only one for the ICND1 course, as of now. This was a great way to keep my mind sharp on a lot of the concepts during my spare time.
That's it. Now I'm taking a two week break before ramping up to CCNA before February.
Thanks for reading.

Passed Network+ today!
I passed Network+ today with probably the best score ever, a 723/900 with a 720 being the lowest score to pass haha. A pass is a pass but couldn't cut it closer. My study time was in total about 4 months and I work in a help desk support role currently. My study materials were Jason Dion's Udemy course, Jason Dion's Udemy practice tests, Professor Messer's training videos and the study guide notes.
I also have the CompTIA Server+ making a stackable cert as CNIP (CompTIA Network Infrastructure Professional). I think I've seen this question asked here before, but when adding these to a resume, would you list it as "CNIP (CompTIA Server+, Network+) or list them individually?
Please let me know if you have any questions and if you're taking it soon or in the future, GOOD LUCK! Stay hungry, my friends.

If you only have a few days, get the Jason Dion Udemy course and just listen through it. It comes with an extensive downloadable cram guide. https://www.udemy.com/course/networkplus/?couponCode=SEPT2021
That said, the objectives should be read first, as they are the true source if you know what you are doing and will keep you on track as you are learning of what you need to be listening for.

You do have to pay for it, but if you buy his Net+ and 6 practice exam bundle, it should just be $20 which is a steal for the knowledge you receive on Net+

I am taking a course through Udemy. Dion training is the facilitator and its very useful info. I got it on sale for i believe $15 each, i ended up getting Net+ and Sec+. I do short bursts at a time but its easy to pickup where you were. Also has practice quizzes at the end of each section. If you get it wrong it will tell you a brief summary of what the correct answer is.
Sometimes the courses are around $100 each but regularly go on sale. Especially with black friday you ahould be able to get it cheap!, edit found its on sale for 1 more day!

Check out some of the Network plus topics - if you are new to networking.
Also, there is this jncia study guide, its pretty old for learning Junos but for concepts it's still valid.

Try watching through Jason Dion's udemy lecture series https://www.udemy.com/course/networkplus/
You used Professor Messer's video series, which helps a lot of people pass but is mainly a revision based teaching method. Jason Dion goes more in depth in explaining everything. Once you have an understanding through Dion's videos, then Messer's revision videos work a lot better.

Professor Messor has a great course for all the CompTIA exams, including Security+. I also used Jason Dions Network+ exams on Udemy which are probably the closest you can get to the test material without seeing the test itself. Also Jason Dions course on Udemy was pretty good if you really want to cement the information into your head. Besides that you could print out the objectives and study each item on it.

If you're A+ certified or read through the A+ stuff, you might have an easier time with server+. The majority of the exam is hardware. I took server+ after A+ and I don't regret it. Many claim net+ is much, MUCH harder.
These are the materials I'd recommend based on what I currently have/used/am using:
Server+ material: SK0-004/005 book by Daniel Lachance, ITPros.TV.
Network+ material: Prof Messer on youtube, Jason Dion (Udemy), Mike Meyers (Udemy/all in one book). If you're looking to take the N10-008 instead of the N10-007... You could even consider this course, too. There are more materials available for the 007 right now, though.

Apply to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Chipotle, Best Buy etc so you can earn more. Since moving out is your top priority and it's urgent, I would work 2 jobs for a few months. It will be a lot of working but it's a sacrifice you'll have to make to get away from your toxic family.
I can tell you what I would do regarding school. I saw you're going in the IT field; some sort of computer science or software dev. I'd drop my classes at CC and take on another job. School will always be there and this is only temporary.
I would want a Help Desk/Tech Support job ASAP to get my foot in the door in that field and to make a better wage. This should start you around $18-$20/hr.
Instead of school at the moment, get your CompTIA A+ and CompTIA Network+ certs (assuming you don't have them yet)
Professor Messer is a recommended resource.
Jason Dion on Udemy also has great material and practice tests.
After you earn your certs and land a job, go back to school for your bachelors. This can be done with little debt I promise, as long as you are open minded. You have to fill out the FAFSA because you'll want federal loans (neverrrrrr private loans). With federal loans you can defer your payments as long as you're in school. You can also do a payment plan with them and the interest rates are locked in and low.
I highly highly recommend WGU for any IT degree since I've heard nothing but good things about the school and the programs.
The school is around $4k per semester. Each semester is 6 months. You can finish the degree as quickly or as slowly as you like. People work 40+ hours a week plus have kids and have been successful at WGU. If you finish the program in 2 years then that's $16k. They offer scholarships as well. There is a sub here on reddit and other subs for specific degrees.
I will note: If you can land a Help Desk/Tech Support job at a hospital or some place that offers tuition assistance/reimbursement, they will pay up to $5k a year for your degree.
If you have some gen ed you need to finish you COULD go back to CC and take some night classes since that would be pretty affordable. OR you could use Straighterline or Sophia Learning to knock out some classes quickly.

Oh for sure, prepare for a long ass list:
The last four are from the same guy, all of his courses are cool here they are.
I am now working on these two:
I hope this is useful!
Edit - The Network+ and Security+ need companions, these alone won't cut it but I have the books form this company for both certs to work through too. Not yet looked at test exams though.
