    I haven't posted here in a while, so I thought I'd just post an update. I booked myself on to the A+ course at my local college yesterday and the first session is in a week's time!

    Really looking forward to it :)

    Thanks for the words of support guys.

    Yeah, I'll let you know once I get stuck in. It's currently a WIP for you, is that outdated, or did you start at an irregular time in the year?

    Good luck, Flipside. I had a lot of fun whilst studying for the A+ with my mates in class. Of course that was back in the days when we had to hunt woolly mammoths in order to get dinner. :D

    The time you start does not make a difference, due to the fact that you have to book your exams with Pearson Vue or Thompson Prometric... I started the course in Feb or March and finished in June or was it July? whenever colleges finish.... :rolleyes:

    ...and im still studying for the Exams...

    I had my first session this evening which was pretty good. The first 18 weeks concentrate on the OS side of things, followed by 18 weeks of hardware. Today, we concentrated on the basics of DOS and were given half a ton of paperwork! :)

    Yeah, I have the Certification Passport, which I purchased a few months back. The college I'm studying at has the full-blown hardback on order, so that should be arriving next week.

    Maybe im missing something here, but if the exams are going to change drastically next march, should'nt the new books be available now?

    I've settled on this one

    'Faster Smarter A+ Certification
    by Drew Bird and Mike Harwood
    Microsoft Press © 2003'

    can anyone tell me if i need to study and remember all the history of the PC? there are dates noted of certain events do these things come up in the exam or should i skim through those parts and stick to the facts.

    have a look at the objectives on the comptia site for what you need to know, and you can cross reference these against your book...
