    Hello people, just a couple of questions if you dont mind as I am ultra confused ;(

    a) I was told that I had until 30th June till the exam was updated from the 2003 objectives and the new objectives came into force. Is this true as I have just booked my 301 exam. Also does this apply to the A+ OS exam?

    b) Is the 301 multiple choice only or does it involve structured sentences for answers

    Cheers guys sorry for being a pain :oops:

    a) = Yes, if u are in the UK believe you have till June 30th till both exams are replaced.

    b) = I believe most are multiple choice, with the odd diagram based question...someone else can confirm

    Yup, both right, 2006 objective exams start after the end of June.

    And mainly multiple choice, though I didn't have any diagrams on my exam. But guess it's better to expect that there may be :)

    Not accurate. 2006 can allready be taken, 2003 stops 30 June.

    A+ is MC but there are also graphic questions (what kind of jack do you see in the picture or identify so and so on this motherboard).
    There are no "fill in the blacks" as far as I know.
    90 questions in 100 minutes.
    Most questions are 'oneliners'.

    Spot on that guys thanks a lot, Ive got another question, sorry.

    Do you advise me to revise new material for the OS 2006 objectives? coz by the time I take my 301 exam what I have already studied will be of no use. And that way I can give myself time to prepare for 302

    What you think? :rolleyes:

    Cheers

    Yeah thats what I meant, can take 2006 now if u want but the deadline for 2003 is 30th June.


    BTW, Colin, I don't think u can combine exams...ie if u pass one exam on the 2003 objectives you still have to pass both 2006 exams to be A+ certified.

    You cant combine 2003/2006 objectives to get A+ certified. If you think you can pass both exams in time, then go for it, otherwise start learning the 2006 objectives.

    No idea - most of us (if not all of us) probably don't know what Scheidegger Training covers. If you had asked me if a certain edition of book would prepare you, I could answer with some level of certainty.

    Hy folks, firstly wana say thanks :biggrin for all the help and good advice that I received last week reagrding my A+ exams it was musch appreciated and because of this I am now confident I can do what has to be done.

    I have now got a list of the objectives that I need to study so I am OK, and I have been going over all my old stuff. Some of it sounds weird but it's sinking in.

    Thanks Again guys
