    Hi Guys,

    Got my 220-301 exam a week on Friday, can anyone tell me if you can skip through question backwards/Forwards and mark them, in the same way you can with quizzies that come with all these books I've purchased?????????????

    Cheers in advance,

    J

    I believe you can but it's been several years since I took the A+. Someone with more recent experience will probably be along to confirm this.

    You can go forwards and backwards, you can mark any questions, and you can go over all of them again as many times as you want before you finish. One thing I did notice was it told you how many answers to select on the 'Which of the following options' type questions, something I don't remember the practice tests having.

    I suppose that depends on the exam testing software you use. The Trancender stuff (which I quite like) tells you how many boxes it expects you to tick.

    As for the exam Jay_man, one tip would be to take your time. Read the question fully, often you can get tips in the question on the possible answer.

    Sometimes it will look like there is 2 correct answers, if so check the question, it may say something like 'what is the most efficient way of doing this'. The word 'efficient' in that case is the clue. There may be 2 seemingly correct ways of fixing a problem as suggested in the answer, but one is likely to be long winded compared to the other etc...

    Hi Jay,

    If I were you I would only tick for review the questions you really aren't sure of.
    Sounds ovious but I ticked a lot of them when I did my Core exam because I thought I would go back and check them at the end.
    The problem is it sows seeds of doubt in your mind and you could change answers that are correct :oops:

    Best of luck for the exam
