    Hi and welcome to CF!

    If I understand you correctly you took the A+ OS part with the 2003 objectives. The school is correct. You have only until the end of the month to pass the hardware part.

    You can't mix the 2003 and 2006 exams to get A+.

    Harry.

    QFT, get your hardware exam booked up as you'll have to start again for the 2006 objectives...

    It was announced in plenty of time that A+ was being updated.

    Yep... there's been about a year's worth of notice. The old exams were supposed to retire in the US on 31 Dec 06, and in the UK on 31 Mar 07.

    I think you should take this matter up with your "school", although to be honest, you should really keep your eye on these things. I know its bad luck really, but as said above, there has been loads of notice about this.

    I hope you can get the exam booked and passed before the end date mate. :D

    You have a point about the school should have reminded jreimerink about the changes to A+. However it is down to the individual to make sure they are studying the up to date material as well.

    Heck I'm not taking the A+ and I knew about the changes well over a year ago.

    jreimerink chalk this down to experience and learn to do some research into the certs you are taking, fingers crossed you will take the next exam in time.

    Take it easy jreimerink. The OS exam is the MOST DIFFICULT part of the A+ exams, and you passed it! You got rid of the hard part. Hardware is alot more easy and you CAN pass that before June 30.

    I'm sure that you *have* studied at least part of that already, so just continue in that line and book the exam for next week and get it over with.

    Remember, the exam is multiple choice. Moreover, ALOT of the questions can be answered correctly using common sense. Its not that hard......you already nailed the hard part already. Don't stop now! You're half-way there.

    You have the easiest exam left. Study a few more hours each day, do some practice exams, go over the objectives to make sure you covered everything, and then GO FOR IT!

    I believe that you CAN make it and I know you will. Take it as a challenge. Don't come this far and turn back to the starting line to begin again. Time is going and you're half-way to the finish line. A little more hard work will make you proudly lift the trophy next week. Just do it.
