    These are part of the OS objectives that I am trying to answer using the Mike Meyers A+ book but I am having trouble could someone help me here I am stuck and the 2003 exam is next month.

    But I need your help.


    Help guys

    o Directory Structures (root directory, subdirectories, etc)

    Is this asking for the definition of a root directory and subdirectory?

    o Create folders

    Is this asking how to create folder and subfolder using My Computer and Windows Explorer

    o Navigate the directory structure

    Is this asking me how to navigate the tree structure in
    My Computer and Windows Explorer if so. Could someone give me a written explanation.


    o Maximum depth

    I have no idea of what it is being asked here. I dont recall
    reading about this concept in the Mike Meyers book


    o Files

    I think this is asking the maximum amout of files that can be
    created in a directory under a particular file system.

    o Creating files

    I dont know what this is asking me.

    File types (text vs binary file)

    Have you downloaded the objectives from CompTIA's Web site to see if they offer any better explanations of what is being asked of you?

    Yes.

    Yes, and under DOS with MD.

    Yes, and the DOS equivalents. So know how CD works (cd \ cd.. cd folder cd c:\folder\subfolder )

    Howmany subfolder levels can you create? How long may the string be? Is there a work around? What are the limits then?

    And how big they can be.
    Obvious! How do you create a file?

    If this is from the objectives, then that item is a header. The specifics are shown under it indented.

    One subject you need to know is navigating windows using the keyboard ONLY. CompTIA expect you to know how to navigate a windows operating system without the use of a mouse, including creating,modifying,moving,copying and deleting files/folders,migrating files and folders to new locations and effective use of keyboard commands to open,close and manipulate various dialogue boxes. This might sound a little scary to start with but is actually really easy (and somewhat logical) so get some practice in. I had several quaetions on my A+ 2003 OS exam covering this very subject.

    I have not read anything about this in the A+ book could you help me. Maybe give me a link I know from experience how to navigate Windows using the arrow keys but not how to manage files without the mouse. Could you give more information on this.

    And thanks again for your help.

    mate - its the windows shortcuts, instead of rightclicking the file, and selecting copy for the dropdown menu, its pressing CTRL+C to copy...
    Does that make sense or do you really need the shortcut guide?

    MM chapter 13 has a lengthy section on how to navigate the directory structure, and do things like copy etc from the command line.
