About the CompTIA Network+ N10-005 Simulator

Gain hands-on experience for the CompTIA Network+ N10-005 exam without having to invest heavily in hardware, software, or other equipment with this Network+ Simulator from Pearson IT Certification, a leader in IT Certification learning and a CompTIA Authorized Platinum Partner. 


The Simulator Series from Pearson IT Certification are the most effective simulators for hands-on skills enhancement and is the perfect learning product to help you prepare for CompTIA’s newly introduced performance-based questions. 


This state-of-the-art, interactive simulation software presents you with more than 150 challenging labs that help you learn by doing, which is the most effective method of learning. Experience realistic operating system and network device response as you work through each of the labs. Manipulate cables and other hardware and organize network devices on network topology maps. All Network+ N10-005 exam topics are covered, including networking concepts, network installation and configuration, network media and topologies, network management, and network security.


The labs are divided into five different types. Matching labs help you develop a mental map of concepts, enhancing retention and recall. Drag and Drop exercises allow you to work with physical cables and other equipment as well as network designs. Command Line Interface (CLI) labs allow you to get some hands-on experience configuring Cisco routers and switches. Graphical User Interface (GUI) labs allow you to work through common Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Linux, and Lynksys router configuration tasks. Worksheet exercises help you master numbering system conversions. Labs conclude with Think About It sections to help you develop critical thinking skills and delve deeper into the concepts you are learning in the lab activities. You can save your grades on each lab in PDF format, and the software tracks your progress on each lab, so you always know exactly where you are in your studies.


In addition to the wealth of hands-on exercises, this software comes complete with more than four hours of video training by expert instructor Anthony Sequeira.
