    Hi all im takeing my exam in the second or third week of May and i was wondering if anybody knows the objectives, and what kinda questions will be asked.

    I am currently studying using the CompTIA A+ 2006 book by Jean Andrews

    and also the Mike Myers version.

    is the 2006 book still relevant and has much change from the 2006 exam to the presant day??

    Cheers

    Hi, why not introduce yourself here and be a part of this community :)

    You can download the A+ 2006 edition objectives here. As for the type of questions, you can see here for a sample or you can purchase practice exams from vendors like Preplogic, Boson, Transcender, etc...

    Some common question and answer can be found on Comptia's FAQ page, like:

    Question
    How many questions are on the CompTIA A+ exams?
    Answer
    220-601 (CompTIA A+ Essentials) has 100 questions. 220-602, 220-603 and 220-604 each have 90 questions.

    Question
    Will the CompTIA A+ exams move to an adaptive format?
    Answer
    No. At this time there are no plans to move the CompTIA A+ exams into an adaptive format. They will remain in a conventional linear format.

    As for the changes from the exam when it was released to the 2006 edition of the exam today, I believe that Comptia may have incorporated some minor revisions, but nothing major (nothing that would make you fail if you were prepared for the exam to begin with, imo).

    Hi there,

    I passed my A+ exams recently and I found the 2006 book by Jean Andrews to be very good. As stated above, I think there are only minor revisions to the exam format and as far as I could tell, everything that was in the exam was covered to some degree in the book.

    Good luck with your studies.
