    Does anyone recently took the A+ exam? If so could you please tell me how was it? I'm planing to go for it in next 3 weeks.

    Are you allowed to use calculator or sheet of paper?
    How was the question harder then you expected, easier or .... else
    What testing software did you used?

    You are allowed to use a calculator but as I recall, you won't need one. You can use all the paper you want...you just have to turn the paper in at the end of the test. Some testing centers use an erasible white board (hand held) instead of paper.

    I took the A+ a few years back so I guess my experience isn't all the relevant anymore. Still, can't be *that* different. For the A+, I didn't use any mock test software except what came with the Mike Meyers textbook.

    Are you planning on taking both tests the same day or are you taking them on separate days?

    You can use Windows calculator at any time, and you should be provided with paper on entry.

    I found the questions firm but fair.

    Used Nitlc's test preps at the time, plus those with the Meyers A+ book, and much reading of A+ Cramsessions.

    I recently completed both exams for A+ (included XP) and we were not allowed to use calculator (not that we needed it) we were given white plastic A4 sheet with a marker pen that when used would run all over sheet making it impossible to read what you had written, but passed both anyway!
