View Full Version : A+ Certification / OTHER CERTIFICATION

03-07-2001, 09:55 PM
Ok, I have a lot of computer knowledge however I lack in several hardware troubleshooting areas. I just wanted to know what exactly is A+ Certification, how to get certified, and how much the test test(s) cost. Also I would like to learn how to administer Networks. Microsoft has an expensive certification for I think NT and things. Does anyone know of a cheaper solution to this? I appologize for my ignorance but I would just like to know if anyone has any suggestions for someone wanting to get into hardware troubleshooting / how to determine what style of motherboard and other parts are. I already know a great deal about the software and OS's and have worked on comptuers for a long time; however, I usually have to replace parts rather than troubleshooting them. If this doesn't make sense Please ask me a question and I am open to any and all suggestions.

Can't tell from your profile where you live, but if you have a local junior collage you might start there. Here are some links I have picked up from from this site that might help also. http://www.geocities.com/aplus_practice_exams/pg_01.htm http://leuthard.ch/mcse/index.htm
You might try a search for "A+ certification" on Google
Good luck

If your not living on the edge, your taking up to much space!

Save me some typing, and you some searching. A+ testing has been explained pretty well in other topics in this category, look through them and I'll bet you come up with plenty info concerning what it's all about. Check the links posted, plenty of them also have info concerning MSCE also.

And stay tuned, some of these folks are kicking around the idea of an online study group, I think it's an excellent idea and hope it gets off the ground. There's a topic about it as well, check it out. You may want to participate.
