    could i ask how much knowledge of cpu history is really necessary both for the exams and for actual employment?

    im just having trouble remembering things like how wide is the 8088's ext.bus etc.

    i am going to learn it parrot fashion it's just taking a while to sink in.

    Potentially a good bit for the exam, most likely very little beyond day to day working knowledge for real life.

    IMHO :)

    Exactly what Gav has said here. When i took my A+ core I was fortunate enough to have about three questions on processors and one of them was an oldy about a slot pentium. :blink
    I would try and memorise the popular processors, clock speed, onboard cache and the amount of pins.
    I found writing them down on a piece of paper and reading them constantly it eventually sinks in "parrot fashion".
    Best of luck.
