    I finished my hardware and I am now studying for software OS exam. After I pass the Mike Meyers practice and final exams am I ready for the test or should I use another testing software.

    Thanks,

    What about the Mike meyers Lab book for software, also have you tried Mike meyers Passport edition or Learnkey

    The other one and it is highly recommended by staff at CF is the Trancender practice exam

    Try out testing software - 80% I understand is the general level to get to before you go for the A+.

    But also, the Core OS exam has a much greater leaning on 'hands-on' experience. A lot of questions are on 'how do you get to 'x' function' - so know your menus. Get on a PC, and practice!

    All depends if you are more of a software or hardware person. I found the OS a lot harder purely from a lack of experience point of view. Last thing you want to start doing is using practice tests too much or you run the risk of memorising the answers and not really learning. Get hold of as many of the OS's as you can and use them, either on physical hardware or a VM. Build on the similarities between them but be aware of the differences. And to stop yourself getting bogged down and concentrating on stuff you don't need, make sure you have the core objectives and read them thoroughly.
