    good luck with the exam, try and go over any sections you are not happy with like networking.

    Are you using the Mike Meyers AIO book? as it explains everything clearly in that book

    no, i am from the UK. i am using the uk study materials. and believe me, the questions are different from the US. the uk questions are based on the uk materials. but thanks for your help. mike myers passport guide is good 1, but doesnt have the enough info, but thanks.

    I didn't say anything about which country you are from :blink the best book to use is compTIA A+ all in one exam guide 6th edition by Mike Meyers (AIO all in one) the passport book doesn't contain enough info imo.

    all in one exam guide?? u gotta be kiding me, i have looked through it, and i must say thats a junk of rubbish when i read it. it contains information that is not necessary, the passport guide is way better, but thanks for the advice though. and i am revising very hard today, because i havent reveised before (wich i shud of done), basically i have to revise 10 chapters TODAY!

    The AIO book deosnt contain unneccesary information the All in one exam guide contains everything you need to know. It has sections that relate to every exam but you need to know all of the sections for Essentials and the IT techncian exam. I take it you are with Advent or some other training provider.

    The all in one exam guide is the most recommended book to get for the A+

    Edit: with the all in one exam guide your supposed to read the whole book not just bits of it.

    Whats the old adage, failing to prepare is preparing to fail. No, honestly, good luck, but hardcore last minute revision was never my thing, never gave myself less than a week or two for any exam, but I guess I'm a bit sad like that.

    One thing I always accepted with exams is that you can't expect to know all of it and that for passing or getting the top mark its usually irrelevant, 4/5 = A+. Sometimes if you can't grasp a concept/subject after going over it a few times and trying to learn it then sometimes it's best to just move on and not cause undue stress over something and concentrate on other areas that you might be able to improve on.

    You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but most people would disagree with you. The AIO contains what you need to know to pass the exam AND to be a knowledgeable tech. After all, that's what it's about: being able to do the job, not just being able to pass an exam, right?

    I thought you meant you had passed the real thing. It looks like you have a lot of tests to do before you do the real 2 exams.

    I so totally agree with you I went that route and wrote both exams one in the morning and the other in the afternoon, passed both. It's just a pity I have no experience and can't find a job despite many interviews.
