    hi guys my name is Joe and i'm a 21 year old college student at chippewa valley tech. college. I'm just wondering if you guys think i'm ready for the A+? I've basically read through the entire Mike Meyers A+ all in one guide as well as taken the many practice tests on the disk. Do you think with this knowledge I am ready for the A+? Your feedback is all greatly appreciated!

    You could be, but have you thought about getting some practice exams from preplogic or trancender.

    I say that because on the disk you get with the Mike Meyers book you can keep doing the exams again again and eventually you'll memorise whats there as you can get it to tell you what the correct answers are and you will remember next time.

    if you think you are ready though go for it, you can always take them again if you fail.

    We cant really give a judgement based on two posts, with the information you have supplied. Even if you were a regular contributer here, the only person who knows if you are ready is you.

    Solution,

    In my opinion there are two things before sitting an exam; knowing all the objectives and exam technique. I would suggest you purchase some exam testing software.

    Are you ready? Solution, that's a question that can only be answered by you. If you're scoring well on the practice exams then my advice would be to not procrastinate, BOOK THE EXAM! :)

    I often find that the people that feel uneasy about booking their exams are the ones that are most ready to take them. The closer you are to booking, the more nervous you feel! Have the courage of your convictions, I'm sure you'll do well!

    Best of luck fellla! :thumbleft

    Transcender and preplogic as I mention above.

    But take note of what Alex says he is correct.:D

    Greetings, Joe. Your question would almost require that I be psychic to answer. You're the only one truly who knows if you're ready or not, assuming you've had a look at the objectives and have studied well. That said, what the others have mentioned about mock testing software is a good point. That will give you a chance to judge yourself by an outside standard to see if you are doing as well as you think. If you are consistently getting high scores, chances are, you're ready. Good luck.

    Actually, Boson doesn't have an A+ 2006 product (yet - we are developing one)... but that's not what I meant...

    ...I meant, your previous recommendation was half right. :D

    No, I was referring to GBL's post, not yours. :) Yours was fine.

    ...but I can no longer be considered young at age 37. 8)

    Solution,

    Only you'll know when You're ready but at the same time it might be worth putting some pressure on yourself by booking the exams, a bit of pressure doesn't hurt anyone! Keeping reading your notes and do some practice exams so you can identify what you need to improve.

    Thats what I'm doing at the moment, My A+ exams are the 29-30 Oct, I'm bricking it! :D
