    As a completely new person in the field of IT certification I just wondered what format the Comptia A+ exam came in?

    I've read two exams but seen people also quote to sets of three digit numbers like 203-320. I know I'm showing myself up here :oops: .

    I've got the Myers A+ All i one on the way from Amazon, which probably explains it all!

    The numbers 220-xxx are exam numbers - where the first part seems to indicate CompTIA. Microsoft tends to use 70.

    Yes - there are two exams. They have numbers as well as names. Sometimes the books and docs quote the numbers, sometimes the names, sometimes both.

    This page shows both name and number.

    The Meyers book includes a CD with practice exams on it, which are a close visual match to the real thing.

    The level of difficulty is really your level of knowledge?

    You may take in loads of the hardware side, and think thats easy and vica versa.

    Most people I know tend to think the software side is a little
    harder basically due to the ammount of stuff you need to remember, including certain parts of operating systems that
    you don't use daily, like Windows 95 etc.

    If you use XP daily then you learn as you use really.

    Try getting into VMware if you only have 1 computer, cos it's
    the best move I did. Load all your operating systems into 1 and
    learn that way. (Check out the VM Forum on here)


    But most of all if you get stuck with anything, then get back
    on here and ask, cos everyone here is very helpful, and more
    than willing to offer help and advice.

    I was about to give up on my A+ until by chance I found this
    site, and it helped me loads.

    Good luck, Callum
