    especially for reinforcement in areas you might be weak in you could take a look at the professor messer videos: http://www.professormesser.com/free...essers-free-220-70x-comptia-a-training-course

    look over the test objectives make sure you have a good grasp of them all

    Get yourself some practice exams (don't over use them) to see where you're weak and concentrate on those area.

    Few things I found during the exams that helped me...

    Seems simple but read the questions properly.
    Got quite a few practice exam questions wrong by going for what seemed like the obvious answers and then reviewed them and realised I didnt quite read the question right, for example it may describe a troubleshooting problem that may ask for the most LIKELY answer. This may be different answer to the same question but asks what you should check FIRST.

    Also I found it helped to flag any questions you're not CERTAIN of, some of the later questions seemed to give hints to some of the earlier questions.

    Keep on eye on the time, have a quick check every now and then to see how you're doing time wise compared to the number of questions you have left, remember you want to have enough time to review too. If you're spending too long on a question, flag it and come back to it.

    On the first run through and flagged about 25-35% of the questions then made a second run on the flagged questions that I spent a little more time on, removing the flags as I was satisfied. Then a final run on the last few flagged questions I was really struggling on spending the remaining time on those.

    These tips seemed to work for me in the end, I guess it's personal preference mind.

    Best of luck!

    I agree,

    practice exams really helped me.they give you an idea of some of the questions you will be asked.Generally they are more difficult than the actual reals one.

    Videos really helped to get a good understanding of lots of differing parts. try http://http://www.professormesser.com/free-a-plus-training/220-701/professor-messers-free-220-70x-comptia-a-training-course

    He gives really clear instructions and information.I have a feeling you will use this on your next cert.
