CompTIA Network+ Study Resources

Network+ Resources The goal of this post is to consolidate some of the most-used “best” resources in one place. These recommendations come from students studying for the exams, people who have passed, professional educators, and an array of IT professionals.  Materials I personally used are highlighted in blue.Please list suggestions for additions/corrections in the comment section. *The resources listed here are suggestions only, and have no implied guarantee of their availability or suitability to your individual circumstances.

 ClockBooks Whatever other resources you use, most successful students buy a good book. Those below are often recommended.

Get instant access to thousands of books & videos for technology, creative, & business professionals from the world’s most trusted experts.


The choice of book depends on your individual learning style.  If you enjoy a more laid-back, chit-chatty style, Mike Meyers might be the one for you.  For those who like things to get right to the point, the Exam Cram book might be a great choice.  For those near the end of their studies, who want to see where they stand with some practice questions, the Exam Cram Practice Questions book might be exactly what you are looking for.  Most of these can be previewed at or your local bookstore. Preview them to decide which writing style will work best for you.
