I just found this certmag.com article from November written by Emmett Dulaney (The dude who writes the Network+ Exam Cram books and also writes the A+ & Security+ books for Sybex): An overview of changes to CompTIA's new Network+ exam - CertMag
He breaks down the differences between the 2 versions of the exams & he clearly feels that N10-007 exam is easier. The key excerpt from the article is:
While A+ certification has always been recommended but never required, N10-006 additionally suggested Network+ candidates should have nine months of experience in network support or administration. N10-007 now suggests nine-to-12 months of work experience, but that experience should be in IT networking.
There can be a considerable difference between nine months experience in networking and nine months experience in network administration. To complement this change, complex objectives requiring hands-on knowledge have been depreciated in favor of more conceptual and/or knowledge-based ones. Configuration, for example, of firewalls, DNS, and other components has largely been replaced by more focus on the concepts themselves.
Also, I'm watched a Webinar from February with with CompTIA's Director of Product Management for the Network+ exam. When talking about the major difference between the N10-006 & the N10-007 exams, she talks about that the N10-006 was geared towards Network Administrators, while the new updated N10-007 is geared towards Junior Network & Systems Admins.
