    In questions I am doing on my A+ at the moment, I am being asked where on the MOBO clocks and cache are located.

    Now, I may be a young blonde female. But the clock pertaining to the system is within the 'realms' of the CMOS battery, and Cache is on the CPU.

    Mock me if I'm wrong and point out a constructive answer. But don't mock too much :biggrin

    Yes, that's correct L1 and L2 cache isn't it?. 8)

    How's your studies going? Are you using the MM book?
    Are you doing any Voluntary work or already in the job?

    I just wondered, because I am studying A+ at the moment and taking mock exams.

    Now that's being pernickety Cheekmaster :)

    UCM - I'm studying at home. I'm signed up to Skillstrain/Scheidegger. I'm quietly happy with the course, unless someone posts a thread that gets my hackles up, then I'm incredibly vocal about my happiness!!

    I also have the MM All in One, and I take the Passport book around and about with me in my...err...handbag, for studying as and when. I find it useful reading from two or three different perspectives, so I get a good grasp on things.

    Also, reading 3 different books gives me an excuse for my complete and utter procrastination on completing the A+...

    there are two main references to 'clock',REAL TIME clock and SYSTEM clock.

    The real time clock is exactly that,the time as you see it in your time zone.

    The system clock refers to a crystal on the motherboard that determines the 'clock speed',the rate at which your processor will perform calculations,usually measured in Mhz.

    The real time clock settings are held in CMOS,the system clock is a physical peice of hardware on your motherboard.

    Good for you!

    I have MM - passport book and the Lab hardware book also by MM. I was thinking of buying the all in one guide, but zimbo says there's a new edition coming out soon.

    How different is the all in one guide to the passport. Is it well laid out as the passport book is and does the all in 1 book have practice questions at the end of the chapter?

    Thanks Mal - will make note of that. I did the whole thing (8 essay questions) without looking at my notes. Cheating yourself, and all that!!

    UCM - the Passport is ideal if you've got a good grasp generally of the A+ material. It's like the AiO condensed down into the essentials. Chapters are broken down the same way, and it's got an extra CD on with more test questions.

    I'd recommend getting both if you're relatively newb to the techy side of things (like I was). Or if you feel guilty about going to the pub a lot (like I do) take out the Passport version, do some snaps of reading when you're sober, and irritate the hell out of your mates when you're drunk by pronouncing long words and sounding like a clever git.

    Some technical greats on a Saturday night include:
    "It says my Shishtem is going to shut down if I don't clicksh *hic* the any key."

    When I am ready!

    I just want to make sure I have an indepth knowledge of A+ before I take the exam.

    I can't help thinking about that other CF member Urloke I think that's his username. Who said when he got to the exam he found there where questions there that his Compu T. course didn't cover.

    mmmmm :hhhmmm I better go do some studying!

    I haven't studied for the A+ so I am not sure what you have read. But I do know that the crystal is just that, usually a quartz crystal as found in modern watches, a piece of rock.

    The crystal helps to regulate the clock frequency, it has a very stable resonant frequency regardless of temperature variation. So there is a bit more to the system clock than just the crystal.

    I've seen female doctors......scientists.......but female systems engineers.........

    I have yet to seen one (just because their aren't a lot out there) ..... but I really do love to meet one.... well.... at least seeing is good (I don't mean anything else) :D .

    you havent seen a female system engineer? the good part is when their sorting the cabling out under the desk on their knees :twisted: sorry ladies - but the truth had to be told...

    btw: you pair remind me of Kate Beckinsale and Carrie-Anne Moss so i should be on my best behaviour around you two....
