    Hi everyone,

    I have recent taken the new A+ essentials, Passed with 800 points, cool!!

    Found it easier then the old A+ hardware exan 301, very few techinical questions loads of customer services questions, and laptop questions.

    Any one taken the new electives 602, if so any tips!!

    cheers:D

    Hey well done on the pass mate.

    So is the new A+ exam available to take already? I thought this exam wasn't available to take until March of next year?

    To my knowledge, there are none yet. After all, we writers can't start writing until the exam is released (or, at the very least, until the objectives are released). :)

    Mike Meyers' All-in-One A+ Study Guide 6th edition (which I highly recommend) is currently slated for a December 06 release, if I remember correctly.

    Hello mate,

    The only material I know of are these:

    http://www.computerbooks.co.uk/catalog/browse.asp?template=&group=0655

    I have them both and must warn you that if you purchase them be prepared to look up a lot of things and do a lot of hands on stuff. The books are quite vague and I find that things aren't explained clearly.

    Anyway hope it helps!!

    Alex
