CompTIA Network+ N10-008 vs N10-009: What’s Changed?

The world of networking technology evolves rapidly, and so do the certifications that validate professionals’ skills in this field. CompTIA recently updated its popular Network+ certification from version N10-008 to N10-009. If you’re considering pursuing this certification, you might be wondering about the differences between these versions. Let’s break it down.

Exam Objectives

The most significant changes typically occur in the exam objectives. While both versions cover core networking concepts, N10-009 likely includes more emphasis on:

  • Cloud computing and virtualization
  • Network security, including zero trust models
  • Wireless standards and technologies
  • Automation and programmability in networking

The exact weightings of different domains have shifted to reflect the importance of these topics in today’s networking landscape.

Emerging Technologies

N10-009 probably incorporates more content on emerging technologies such as:

  • 5G networks
  • Internet of Things (IoT) devices
  • Software-defined networking (SDN)
  • Network function virtualization (NFV)

These additions ensure that certified professionals are familiar with state-of-the-art concepts shaping the future of networking.

Exam Format

While the overall structure of the exam often remains similar, there might be slight changes in:

  • The number of questions
  • Time allotted for the exam
  • Types of questions (e.g., more performance-based items)

Preparation Materials

With a new exam version comes updated study materials. uCertify likely offers:

  • Revised e-learning content
  • Updated practice tests aligned with N10-009 objectives
  • New hands-on labs reflecting current technologies

Be sure to use uCertify preparation resources specifically designed for the N10-009 version if you’re pursuing the latest certification.

Relevance and Expiration

N10-009, being the newer version, will remain valid for a longer period before the next update. However, both versions are typically recognized by employers. CompTIA certifications are usually valid for three years, after which you’ll need to renew through continuing education or retaking the exam.

Which Version Should You Choose?

If you’re just starting your Network+ journey, it’s generally best to pursue the latest version (N10-009). This ensures your knowledge aligns with current industry standards and practices.

However, if you’ve been preparing for N10-008 and are close to exam-ready, you might consider sticking with that version. CompTIA typically allows a grace period where both versions are available.


While the core networking principles remain consistent, the N10-009 update likely reflects the evolving landscape of network technologies and practices. By pursuing the latest version, you demonstrate to employers that your skills are up-to-date with current industry trends.

Remember, the key to success with any certification is thorough preparation. Utilize high-quality study materials, practice extensively, and gain hands-on experience wherever possible. Good luck on your Network+ certification journey!
