Here's what you will get

CompTIA Network+ is a globally recognized, foundational-level credential designed for IT professionals, IT network practitioners. CompTIA Network+ exam covers topics that are mostly generic and can apply to networking equipment regardless of vendor. 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 Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model and its layers, and the concepts of network design and implementation.
