    Just passed the exam :D

    Thought I'd rushed it a bit cos it only took me 35 minutes! However, passed with a score of 760. Just got to crack on now and get the 602 done.

    I used the Mike Meyers book and the new A+ Exam Cram book and these were both great aids to learning for the exam.

    Got some beers in the fridge, footy is on the telly soon, passed my exam and the wife is away till tomorrow. What more could a man want :D

    No, I read the Mike Meyers one all the way through. I only received the exam cram one last week due to the postal strike and I only got about a 1/3 of the way through it. I just tried to read the chapters that were relevant to the exam.

    I read the book first and then booked the test. I did loads of practice tests as well and these helped.

    congrats, personally i found it easier to study for both at the same time, thus my study for one, backed up the other. then i took both tests the same day.

    I also only took 30-40 mins to complete each, 90 mins is excessive, with multiple choise questions, you mostly know the answer or you dont.
