In this learning demonstration, you will use the TestOut Network Pro (LabSim) to learn about the topics required to achieve success for each submission (network design, network addressing and security, and network customization and optimization). Furthermore, these activities will prepare you for the CompTIA Network+ Certification exam. In order to identify your strengths and weaknesses, you will first complete the CompTIA Network+ Certification Practice exam. Review LEO – Content for how to access the CompTIA Network+ Certification Practice exam. Then, during the next eight weeks, as you step through each set of activities in LabSim, you will also be drafting sections of your network design proposal.
Use the results of the Network+ certification practice exam you took at the beginning of the class to help guide you on which areas within LabSim you should pay closer attention. You must complete all online labs in LabSim; these are the activities with the computer mouse icon. The Network Design Proposal will be submitted in three submissions: network design, network addressing and security, and network customization and optimization.
Below, you will find 10 steps in this project that lead you through each deliverable. Begin with Step 1, enrolling in LabSim, and then continue with Step 2, taking the practice exam.
