    CompTIA Network+ N10-005 Simulator helps you reinforce Network+ exam topics and develop and enhance the hands-on skills you will need to succeed on the exam and on the job. 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, which include detailed instructions, hints, and solution. 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 equipment and network designs. Command Line Interface (CLI) labs allow you to get 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 Linksys router configuration tasks. Worksheet exercises help you master numbering system conversions. Most 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.
