    I studied from the Mike Meyers book and did not read anything that could help answer some of the questions I get in some of the practice exams I am using to prepare for the A+ OS exam.
    If I can answer correctly the majority of the questions on the practice exams from the information I got from the MIke Meyers book is that good enough to pass the exam. Or should I memorize the answers to the questions I dont know the answers to including the explanation. Or should I get another book so that I could have a more comprehensive understanding of the questions that the Mike Meyers book didnt cover.

    Here is another question that I couldnt find the answer to using the Mike Meyers book.

    Question 56

    A program request memory that Memory Manager can't provide in Windows 9x, this is referred to as?

    A. Page out
    B. Page fault
    C. Disc block
    D. Rap block

    Answer: B

    A page fault when memory manager cant provide the requested memory. The memory manager would then be forced to use the virtual memory to handle the request.

    Ok, please give me some feed back.

    Professor Falken, would you please refrain from posting actual questions on this forum, as they are copyrighted material and could get us all shot.

    It's fine to paraphrase like this...

    eg In win95 A page fault is when a program requests a memory allocation which memory manager cannot process. It then uses virtual memory or so I am led to believe.

    Can someone clarify this for me?
