    Hi,

    I've been doing quite a lot of practice tests for my A+ exam and find that there are always questions which ask you to choose all answers which apply. I'm assuming the real A+ exam has these types of questions?

    If I get a question like this and say for example there are two correct answers. If I get one of them correct and the other one wrong, or if I simply only give one correct answer but omit to give the other one - does that mean I get the whole question wrong or do I get credit for what I got correct?

    Hope that question makes sense!? :blink

    Thanks,

    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    As far as I recall ('twas a long time ago) it's pretty much all or nothing. If you get any part of the question incorrect, its marked as a wrong answer.

    Sorry it maybe aint the news you wanted to hear, but it at least answers your question.

    HTH :D

    Gav is correct. You have to give the exact correct answer. No credit for being partially correct, I'm afraid.

    Thanks for clarifying that guys. I seem to be having problems with these types of questions in my preparation for the exam. More studying required...

    Welcome to the club. These are harder questions because they require you to think in terms of multiple options rather than a single solution. They also reduce your ability to accurately "guess" the right answer. They are designed to test what you actually know about the subject. A sure fire defense here is to practice as much hands-on with PCs as possible. When I took the A+, I found that as I was answering the questions, I wasn't so much remembering what I read as what I did.
