    Hi guys (me again)

    I have had a quick search but didnt get a good answer, can anyone explain the exact format of the two A+ exams (topic, no of questions, requirement to pass etc..)

    I've read people with prior knowledge taking these exams within 3-4 weeks and passing and receiving their certification within a month - is this a reasonable estimation to pass the A+.

    There's a brief overview here:


    and you can download the objectives here:


    And, if you haven't already read it, the FAQ:


    When I took the exam the number of questions varied because it was adaptive. Don't know if this is still the case.

    The A+ exams are no longer adaptive.Its just a case now of 80 questions and a time of 90 mins.
    A score of 515/900 for the hardware to pass,and a score of 505/900 to pass the O/S.
    I think im correct in saying that you score 100 points straight away just for sitting in the correct seat at the exam centre :biggrin

    After looking at the FAQ I kinda thought the adaptive bit had gone :( I think I prefered that format. I remember shocking the guy at my O/S exam because I finished so quickly - he said it was the fastest anyone had ever finished the exam there (and passed)! Story of my life... :oops:
