    I'm studying for the 702 exam, after passing the essentails I felt very confident and thought I would be ready for the 02 after a couple of weeks.

    Ive been using Professor Messers videos as my main source of studying, but my work have paid for a learn direct ecourse so I ve used that too, I tried a practice test on the learn direct website and it was full of questions on IRQ's and I/O addresses, but I hadn't seen these on the messor videos.

    Is it important to know these for the 702 exam, or are these questions just one of these things added to practice exams to bulk it up?

    Obliviously the more you learn the better you will be at the job, but when studying for an exam I don't want to over whelm myself learning things I don't need for the exam.

    Hi Timostag,

    I can honestly say that they didn't even appear in the training material I used, in the CompTIA's objectives, in the practice exams I used or in the real exam.

    In the real world it's been years since I've had to manually look at IRQ settings or I/O addresses in normal systems and I think that the CompTIA realised this is the general scenario and removed them during the last exam update.

    This is just a personal opinion though and I'm refering to the A+ 220-702 2009 Edition.
