    Is the 4th edition recent enough for the A+ exams? also i think i might have a 3rd edition lurking in a box, would this be any good or should it be pensioned off to a museum along with all my books on DOS and batch programming?

    Thanks guys

    Don't be so sure that you won't find a question or two on DOS in the A+. Although the Operating System it's self may be long gone DOS lives on in various forms!

    I'm not sure what the latest edition of that book is, but the core of the book should be fairly close to what the requirements are.

    Have a look at the latest objectives here.

    Yeah, it always pays to check that the objectives haven't changed.
    DOS is covered and could well crop up for a few questions.
    Best of luck, fire away when required! :thumbleft

    We still need DOS in our daily computer repairing. It is stil essential.

    i know XP has it's command box that looks like DOS and is used for pinging, etc, but is DOS used for much else on PC's other than older ones running ME, 98, etc??? i would have thought that other than partitioning a HDD (which can be done with apps like partition magic) there's not much call for DOS?

    right on! :thumbleft
    if you got a virus lets say in the operating memory of xp... you boot to safe mode with command prompt which stops all the xp services and you have to use the command line within XP to find your way around!
