View Full Version : A+ exam [adaptive]

I just wanted to state for the record that i've been reading all the feedback on this M/B for the last 4 months. I'm currently making a career move from owning a lansdcape co. to the IT field. Been toying with puters for the last 3 years [building,repairing etc.] and decided to get certified. I bought Marcraft's study program and found a few great quizes here that really helped. But the real kicker was the hands on work. Ya cant beat that with a stick! So last week I took both exams core and dos/win. together and passed both tests in about 20 minutes with the new format. Also this site {PCGuide} helped immensley!! SO too any one who is thinking about taking it, pick those old 486's that folks are putting curbside, and start hacking away! Choices, Sybex, and Marcraft are all great study guides too. Good Luck http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif

I suppose congratulations are in order. Glad you passed, I'd like to take the test sometime, but don't know when I'll be able to.

Good luck.

If you had everything...Where would you put it?

Congrats on obtaining your A+ Cert!!

Really, accolades to those that go out and put in the work to pass these tests! My awe comes from messing around with computers for about 20 years, but nothing serious. At age 50, just getting back into "it" by taking a college course (Hardware fundamentals). I've quickly come to realize just how much information/knowledge/experience computers require.

My hope is to get more hands-on experience at the college this winter quarter. There's some advance classes that provide this and the instructors are open to allow me to do this. Like you noted, getting the realy, live, experience is really the key.
