101 Labs - Book Series
Experts agree that we retain only 10% of what we read but 90% of what we do. Perhaps this explains why the global pass rate for most IT exams is a ghastly 40%. This is where the 101 Labs book series can help. We are revolutionizing how IT people train for their exams and the real world with our Learn - By - Doing teaching method.
101 Labs’ mission is to turn you into an IT expert by doing instead of reading. Using free software and free trials, our experts take you by the hand and walk you through every aspect of the protocols and technologies you will encounter in your IT career. We share our configuration tips and tricks with you as well as how to avoid the common mistakes many novice engineers make, which can quickly become career-ending.
101 Labs - CompTIA Network+
This book is designed to help you pass the new N10-007 exam. It now features Performance-based questions (PBQs). These questions test your configuration and troubleshooting skills and add a new level of complexity to the exam. The only way to answer these types of questions is to have hands-on experience with the protocols and technology listed in the exam syllabus.
The Network+ exam is probably the most useful exam in the IT industry. It equips you with all the necessary knowledge you need in order to work with other IT professionals and work in the IT industry. You learn TCP/IP, security, networking protocols and standards, best practices, subnetting and IP addressing, IPv6, troubleshooting tools and software, security, wireless, routing protocol basics, and much more.
CompTIA presumes around 9–12 months of on-the-job experience for all of its exams, but of course, most of the students who take the exam don’t have this. Even if they are working in IT roles, such as in helpdesk or server support, they will have been exposed to only a tiny number of the skills tested in the exam. Doing all the labs in this book will give you that experience.
