    Hi,

    For some things, i have failed to find memory hooks for, so i put the details on a postcard and keep looking at them whenever i get two minutes.

    The only one that is easy is 2 cascaded to 9.

    Thing is buddy, IRQ's are different for different makes and models. Now if your talking about remembering COM's... This is the key......

    COM1 IRQ-4 Address 03f8

    COM2 IRQ-3 Address 02f8

    COM3 IRQ-4 Address 03e8

    COM4 IRQ-3 Address 02e8

    These are some of the main ones you will need to remember for theA+ exam.

    They can be different indeed,but for the purposes of learning the A+ syllabus there is a 'defined' list of the common assignments to IRQ's that you can and most likely will be tested on.Learn the common IRQ's listed in the MM all in one for your exam,or on various e-learning websites.Comptia will expect you to know these tables.

    Great idea Boyce :D . As there seems to be so many lists to remember I shall use your postcard idea as a study aid. Regards.

    Raffaz, remember it is not passing the exam that matters - it is learning the material so that you have the knowledge to progress in your chosen career - knowledge is priceless 8)
