PLEASE NOTE: The Server+ Certification Course is designed as a theory-based course but does contain all relevant information on how to complete practical exercises. The course books that we use are Official CompTIA Press Course materials.
The course is originally designed as an Instructor led course but is a convenient learning tool for individuals who do not have the flexibility to attend traditional classroom training, and because of this format it details the practical elements in greater detail than other courses available.
The home study course comes with DTI Publishing’s Online CertBlaster exam preparation software absolutely free.
CertBlaster® is a powerful certification preparation tool that simulates the conditions of the exams students prepare for. CertBlaster® offers four practice modes and all the different question types required to simulate all the exams.
CertBlaster covers mock examination questions in multiple choice or multiple answer formats. This software is the perfect addition to help prepare for your exam.
Before taking this home study course, you should be familiar with personal computers and the use of a keyboard and a mouse. It is also recommended that students have networking experience and have completed the A+ Certification Course but this is not a requirement.
To complete the practical elements of this course you would require a network ready PC with Windows Server 2008 Standard and Debian 5.0 (Lenny) software; additional workstation PCs and networking equipment.
Course Duration & Support:
Students may register at any time. The home study courses are designed as self-study courses but if you have any problems you can email our email support. As the course is self study you can complete in as little or as long a time as you prefer, and we do not impose a cut-off date for study.
Assessment is from the CompTIA Server+ Certification SK0-003 Examination. The Examination has 100 questions in a multiple choice/multiple answer format spread over 90 minutes. The Exam is graded on a scale of 100 - 900 with a minimum passing score of 750.
