    Default I'm nervous ...

    I stumbled onto this website about 2 hours before my A+ Core exam. If I knew about it before, I guarantee I would pass. I scored a 509! That isnt what bugs me. What bugs me is that I went to change an answer, and i changed a right for a wrong! At least 2 times I did that! I already passed my OS portion, and this is all Im waiting on.

    I have every TechNote on this website printed out, and I am studying them non-stop (even though I could study more.) My next test is on the 16th of this month. Anyone know where I can get some practice exams that are free (besides the one on this website)? I already have Course Technology and Cert Blaster, but I need more.

    If anyone reads this, thanks for letting me vent. It sucks when I am struggling like this, and no one around me can relate. Im the only one I know of around here going for my A+. Thanks for the website, and I will be certified like you all on the 16th!

    Congratulations on your first 1/2 of your A+.

    Feel free to vent when needed and if you have questions on specific topics post them in the forum

    Good luck on the 16th!!

    I am buying two books:

    A+ Certification Study Guide by Michael Pastore (2003) &
    A+ Certification by Michael Meyers (2002)

    Do you think these are good books? I've heard a lot about the Meyers book. Thanks for your input!

    in my opinion the michael meyers book is a bible for the a+, and if you get the all in one version it comes with a practice exam cd-rom

    good luck on the 16th, let us know how you get on

    Well, I think you can find a more recent copy of Meyer's book, but I'd recommend any generation of Meyer's A+. Michael Pastore....I've only glanced at the book in a store one time, I wasn't overly impressed, but it doesn't mean it is not a good book. 2 sources are ALWAYS better then 1 source (provided they are good sources ).

    I don't know you'll get 'bad' info from the Pastore book, but I've like Meyer's style, so it's almost like a Coke vs. Pep$i thing....IF I bother to drink soda today (rarely do)...I'll go for Coke brand products and avoid Pep$i.

    I have another question. I passed my OS part in October. Is there a expiration period? If I pass on the 16th, then it took me almost 4 months to pass both. i think im good, but you guys know more than me. thanks!

    You'll want to check your profile history with Comptia. I am pretty sure you have 90 days to pass both exams to be considered 'Certified". The certification doesn't expire, but the two exams did need to be completed in a timely fashion.


    If it was 4 months between exams, I'd look at your profile and see how it records your exams. Maybe they've extended it?

    Ok. I went onto their website and this is what I found.

    Q: To earn my CompTIA A+ credential, do I need to pass the two exams within a specified number of days?

    Answer:
    No, there is no specified number of days within which you must pass the CompTIA A+ exams

    I think that means Im good. And I hope so because I think I just had a heart attack!

    Interesting. Well, good for you!

    (going to check this out, as I wonder if this applies to the new objectives or the old too).
