    i revised 7chapters in 1 day and the next day 2 chapters - this was for the essentials and i passed it. im just not sure if itll work at the same with the real A+ EXAM.

    Dude - did you just read the chapters, or did you learn and understand the chapters when you were "revising"?

    Depending on your experience and current knowledge you may get away with it, i, imo, would never attempt to do that n any exam, cuz its a bloody lot of money to lose if i had failed.

    Do you have any test prep software? Just to see what that score is?

    Dont know what you mean by Essentials and real A+ exam.

    "Real exam" .. lmao

    I passed mocks at 90% even before i started .. so what! ... i am still taking my time to go through everything properly.

    I am taking time to learn facts and figures aswell.

    I would study until I completely understood the concepts. This is more than just a bunch of memorization so you can pass an exam... this is to prepare you for the "real world" of being a good tech.

    As has been said you are not or you shouldn't be just trying to pass an exam you are supposed to learn the concepts properly so when it comes to the exam passing it should just be a formality.

    I'm sure you will be alright mate, but I know what you mean about something that you hope won't be asked in the A+ exams. With me it was those IRQ's:rolleyes: luckly they asked about the ones I did remember:biggrin
