    Hey folks.

    As some of you may know I am creating an online resource to help others pass the A+ exam. It is still in the early stages as I am updating the free study notes constantly.

    So I got to thinking..

    How cool would it be if I got to answer specific questions that you are struggling with. To get to help you pass the exam.

    What are you struggling with understanding in regards to the A+ objectives? I would love the opportunity to help you guys out.

    The way this would work is you post specific questions in this thread that you may have. People would then vote on the questions. I can't possibly answer literally every question; but those that seem to be affecting the most people I definitely will. The questions that get the most votes I will answer on my blog as thorough and concise as possible.

    My outlook on teaching is this.

    In the words of Albert Einstein, "If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough". So that's my goal. To be able to take these objectives and explain them so simply that it breaks down the answer into manageable sized bytes.

    I will of course continue to create new study notes over every single objective in the 801 & 802; just thought it would be great to answer specific questions as well :)

    Let's do this!

    @Juelz my study notes are at www.passtheaplus.com. The site is still pretty early in development as I have been planning what the best way to go about this would be. Right now the main content I have up is the objectives configure and apply bios settings. I'm excited about the feedback I have been getting. For the more visual parts I am getting actual hardware to show in videos instead of pictures in a slide-show. At least that's the plan. I would be glad to get your feedback on how I could make the site more helpful!! Thanks so much.

    Thansk @Juelz! I'm on the same IT journey as everyone else here and hope it helps. My goal is to have the all of the 801 finished by November and have the 802 study notes finished by February. I am constantly updating it. Having said that; I plan to crush that goal :)

    Content looks good, although not sure if a browser issue but I am seeing a lot of words hyphenated across end of line.

    Such as a sentence that reads

    "This question comes from UB on the TechExams forum and is an ex-
    tremely common question."

    Happens a lot throughout though and makes it a little bit hard reading for me personally.

    Not sure if other people are seeing it the same way though?

    @Coupe2T Thank you for the feedback. I checked on my computer using Chrome and it doesn't do that. What browser and type of device are you using? It is more than likely something I can fix within Wordpress :) Thanks so much!

    Firefox 39.0 or IE 11 both seem to do it for me.

    Unless it's something weird my side, no idea! haha.

    Oh, and it's a HP Laptop that I am using, so full browser etc.
