    As most of you know I am studying for the A+.

    I am just wondering what you guys think of the practice exams by total seminars on the disk you get with the Mike Meyers book.

    See I can pass most of them on that disk but not all of them.

    I was just wanting to know if they are actually anygood.

    I had an old version of that when I took my A+, I think, and they seemed to cover the material pretty well, but they don't really prepare you for the types of, and wording of, the Comptia questions. For that you need to spend some money on something like Transcender practice exams. And, yes, knowing how the questions will be asked is pretty important in Comptia and MS certification tests. If you're not prepared for how they are written you will struggle, as the questions are deliberately written to be vague and seemingly contradictory.

    I have some transcender and prelogic practice exams but they are free trials should I invest in the real things, I can pass these ones easily

    I don't really know how to answer this as it depends on a lot of factors that only you can know. I always prepare for tests very thoroughly. Most people would think that I over-prepare, but I've never had to re-take a certification test either. In fact, I have never even come close to having to retake a test. So, for me, I would say, yes, you need the full set of prep tests. If you're smarter than I am, maybe not. Maybe I'm just an old fart who learns slower than I did in my teens and 20's. :D

    With the practice exams there are 2 exams 20 questions on each for the trancender and 10 questions for 2 exams for preplogic free trials I score 100% on everyone of the exams. Do you think that will indicate anything in my ability.

    LOL. Well, it definitely says you're not stupid. :twisted:

    I don't know how many times you've taken those few questions or what your familiarity is with them. That always makes a difference in how you well you will do with a very limited set of practice questions.

    The total seminar exams I find are a lot easier then the actual exam. I used them for A+ and Network+ and both were easy, when I took the exam, the questions were tougher.

    Transcender on the other hand is just as tough if not tougher then the actual exam.
