    Take your time and don't rush it. The A+ is more than just an exam in that the knowledge you gain from it is used in the real world. Rushing through it and not absorbing the knowledge will not help you in the long run.

    Read the book chapter by chapter, then go back and read it again, this time taking notes on points you forgot or are likely to forget. Once you have gone through the whole book again, read through your notes. Then use the exam map (at the back of the AIO book), making sure you can do/know everything that is listed.

    Then you should be ready for the exams, and you should feel confident that you've prepared as much as you can for them.

    You can usually reschedule exams if you don't feel you are ready to take the exam. Check your exam provider for details.

    Stay focused, keep on track, if in doubt cancel and rebook at a later date.

    Make an everyday study plan, goals that you want to achieve daily, weekly and so on. Stick to your plan, your confidence will increase rapidly as you read and understand every chapter. Good luck. Think POSITIVE!

    Make sure you take plenty of practice exams, that will give you a good indication of where you are.

    Most importantly though is stay focused and use positive visualisation!
