    Hi,

    Could anyone please verify how ID priorities run?

    I fully understand the host adapters are usually 7 and 15 and HDD are normally 0, also any devices can be any ID (unless specified by the manufacturer) as long as there's no duplication on one controller. However, from past study I have been led to believe priority then runs at those figures closest to the host adapters, working backwards towards 0.

    Just read it was the opposite! :rolleyes:

    Rgds and thks

    Hi,

    Thx so much. Read this, and thought it was the case. However, the book I'm reading at the moment states ID 0 as priority after host adapter followed by 1, 2, 3 etc.

    I've come conflicting info (mentioned this before) from recommended books and it's really disheartening. I am beginning to wonder whether I'll get through the exam!

    Very grateful for your help. Thx again

    Rgds

    Plan to take both A+ Hardware and A+ OSs 2003 versions at the same time by mid May (had planned to do this in April but couldn't save my pennies in time!)

    Taking 2 exams at the same time, wow that's brave!

    Are you using any test prep software like Exam Cram2 or Learnkey?

    To resolve this conflict, get the 2 parties around a table and get them to work out their differences :D

    Am I being unrealistic sitting both?

    Yes, I've been using Transcender, Learnkey and Certblaster. Get results in the 90%-100% bracket mostly. Definitely weaker in the OSs and wonder which is the best way to approach this. Is reading/writing notes better than doing prep tests/lab sims? Trying to do all. Have the Exam Cram 2 book but didn't click with it. Perhaps I've read too many books!

    Just a quick point to add. How often are you using your transcender software etc. Its just if you use it to much you will memorise the answers without realising it, and that wont give you a true reading of how well your understanding the material. To give you an idea, i recently finished the 272 exam and i only used the transcender software 3 times.

    Rarely. If I feel I'm answering a question through habit rather than knowledge, I know not to bother. The reason I do these are really to help me remember issues such as IRQ/IO addresses, cable lengths etc, straightforward question/answers to recollect figures. My weaknesses are usually the OSs scenarios; remembering what routes to go down. It's like if i use the keyboard and look at my fingers, I can't type. I'm fine if I go through the motion physically, but mentally it could be improved.

    I wonder if the exam questions are more complex than the prep tests?

    Many thx for the advice. Much appreciated.

    No, but perhaps split the exams so you take one on each day.

    Takes some of the stress away! :biggrin

    May be. Not great at sitting exams (at least looking back many moons ago - school days). Work better during the study phase. I'll think on it. In many ways I'd rather get it all over at once.

    Thx for the thought.
