    Got a score of 679 and they was suprised how quick i was in and out... (Had 2hr parking max and got there an hour early so had to kinda of speed things up).

    I used the CBT Nuggets videos and the Mike Meyers A+ Book.

    Sites used:
    http://www.netwalk.com/~seddy/aplus/ - Very good for remembering the IRQ's etc. Uses JavaScript for the tests. Very useful.

    http://www.free-tests.com/index.shtml - Good tests.

    I've been studying since November but that was on and off etc. I had a bad day at work and decided i was going to book the exam 5 weeks away... this gave me enough time to read the book and watch the CBT Videos. (Currently work in a Supermarket but i am very computer literate... just hard trying to get through to Interviews based on no experience or certs... have qualifications though.)

    I read through the book once and just watched the CBT Nuggets videos over and over (i learn better visualy and people talking to me) this made things alot easier such as the printer 6 step etc.. which i was having great difficulty remembering from the book... watched the printer video twice over and got it!

    Now to do the same for the Operating System exam. :)

    These forums have also been very useful, i enjoy reading posts and learning from other people. :)

    Congrats on the pass! Got to agree you about how quick you can be in & out of there though. I mean, you can only check your answers so many times, right? I was last to arrive for my hardware and the first out, I think I scared the invigilator (and possibly the other candidates...)
    Good luck with the OS!
