Just open up your computer. It is a very basic test about the components of a computer. J/K You should study. I used to have an awesome book illustrated and all but I cannot remember what it was called. Sorry man. Useless post here! <oh the shame> GLWT

i, uh, failed the A+ test back in the day. Needless to say I did NOT go into the IT industry. Another useless post, sorry



It actually gets pretty detailed, iirc. You ought to look for the full course book or something, not the shorter review books that I tried to use.

There is such a thing as too much information. It really depends on how you learn best. If you like CBTs you can go to Pass4sure: Leading the way in studying IT certifications. Best Practice, Guaranteed Certify!

A+ certs are a waste of time unless your going for a job that requires it. Any A+ book will work, most of it is just about hardware types. You can probably just google A+ cram sheet and pass the test.

Also check out the following site for good info and recommendations:

A+ - TechExams.net IT Certification Forums

Good luck with your test, I got the Net+ and Security+ before the end of last year - CompTIA exams aren't that difficult so you should be fine.

CompTIA has an A+ study guide book that goes over their entire test including questions that may be on the test. It can be picked locally at Barnes and Nobles for about $40-50.

Agreed that A+ is sort of a certification for teenagers trying to get a techy job out of high school. Very basic. But it is worth it if you plan on getting all certifications possible. Shoot for A+, Net+, and Security+ by the end of the year and all of those together will make you a more desirable candidate. I used to have my A+, MSCE, CCNA, and CCNP.
