    Hi Alll

    I currently do not work in the IT industry and I am looking to get into an entry level Helpdesk or Desktop support role . I have recently passed my MCDST and I am looking at A+

    I wanted to get some thoughts on this, and is it hard? and is it multiple choice exams like the Microsoft exams ?

    Many thanks

    Hello james,

    If you have the ability to study and pass the MCDST you should be able to understand and learn the material in the A+

    Yes the exams for the A+ are multiple choice similar to the ones you have taken.

    N.B - Good choice on the A+ its a very good exam which will give you a wider understanding in this area.

    Good luck:biggrin

    Hi James! Sorry to be so late answering this, but I rarely get to the forums because I am going the college route right now. I used to teach A+ certs and used to write a newsletter on the subject. A+ is a wonderful foundation for any other certs.

    I found that a lot of the stuff in the MS and Cisco studies I have done made so much more sense because I knew the hardware and basic software from A+. The exams I took were adaptive, but now they have gone back to being a set number of questions, and they are very similar to the other vendor certs you have already taken.

    I wish you well on your endeavors! Tech is not an easy field, but it can be a very rewarding one. I recommend the All-In-One A+ study guide by Mike Meyers. It is widely considered the best prep book on the market for A+.
