    Default How in depth must I study for A+ 801

    How much do I really need to remember for the exam?
    Storage devices: Do I need to know the capacity and speeds of all tape drives?

    More importantly for me..., how much information about CPU's and sockets must I know?
    The 801 objectives listed 5 intel sockets and 9 AMD sockets but didn't even mention specific CPU's
    I memorized all 14 sockets and how many pins each one has.
    Do I need to know all CPU's and what sockets they go to? Do I need to know speeds and cache sizes?

    I took 4 different practice tests and not a single one even asked anything specific about any CPU or socket.

    I did the 701/702 exams and there were only one or two questions on sockets and CPU's in the exams. I believe that type of question was important for the 600 series exams - there were less of them in the 700 exam series so, if the trend holds true, the 800 series exams should again only have a few such questions.

    This is the same book I'm reading and it's very informative.
