    Hello,

    I have been told that currently you need to pass two exams to gain the A+. I have been told one is a multiple choice exam and the other is practical. I am concerned about the practical exam. How does it work? Do you physically do stuff or is it on a computer via simulation?

    Thanks.

    It's only practical in terms if it's title and question content. Both exams are multichoice question with nothing fancy going on.

    Thank you. That's made things so much easier for me. However, why do they call it "Practical Exam" then?

    Most of the questions are asked given a scenario, oppose to the theory exam where it may ask for facts. For example, "how much RAM can a 32 bit OS address?" Or "a user can only see his OS using 4gb of RAM, but he has 6gb installed, what would you check first?"

    Cheers
