    in the MM book (AIO 5th ed), where does core start from?

    i read the book, and its all mixed inbetween... so what is the best way of me studying the core again would be?

    I found that a bit odd too, it seems to have a few core chapters in the middle and a bunch of hardware chapters on either side. I suppose the thing is, some chapters will cover core and hardware subjects. I'd start at all the chapters on Windows in the middle and take it from there.

    The exams are somewhat mixed as well. I had OS questions in core and hardware questions in OS.

    I agree that MM doesn't separate the exams in the book, and this annoyed me when I first started reading it. After the exams I realized that the mix was probably intentional!

    would the best thing for me to be just go through my notes or re-read the entire book again...

    i know where it starts from witht the interactive cd's but bloody hell, i would get through that in any time soon...

    @ BABA - I think your mixing Core with OS

    I did a semi-reread before each exam. Some chapters clearly belong to one side or the other, but I wouldn't rely on CompTIA sticking to the exact split!

    I'd get the latest core objectives from CompTIA and go through them,all of them,using your book and other sources as reference.

    Me too.

    Yep.

    I only went through the book once and then relied almost entirely on my notes afterwards. I did go back to the book for the odd thing, but nothing significant.
