    :eek:

    Have recently passed the MCDST and A+ was next on the hit list, all abit of a rush because work had free vouchers but they run out at the end of the month.

    I started reading the Mike Meyers 6th edition book 7 days ago and completed most of the book, I missed out all the windows stuff and the chapter on sound and security

    I risked missing the windows stuff thinking I would muddle through having just done the MCDST. Bit of a mistake that but I crammed some in late last night in the end, skim it even if you think you are confortable with it.

    I also used some transcenders which I was struggling with until last night.

    Scores
    740/900 on the A+ Essentials
    800/900 on the IT Technician 602

    The second part was way harder than the first - I must of got an obscene amount of questions right through abit of calculated guesswork, either that or I know more than I think I do

    A+ can be done in a short space of time - I had done the cisco version of this course though with the old 2003 objectives a few years ago so had a little knowledge aswell as working in Desktop Support for 2 years.

    Conclusion - if you have previous experience and are confortable in desktop support - the Mike Myers book and transcenders can get you through in a short amount of time, it does cover everything but if I had to do it again I would want 2-3 weeks more than I had.

    Best of luck for anyone else studying for this. :)

    cheers all

    dude - why dd you not take your 602 with your 601 - they are reasonably similar- the 602 is just in more detail

    AP - I have done a chapter already of the 270 book ! :)
