    im really struggling, spent the the last 2 weeks watching loads of online videos from the usual guys, just did an online ram quiz from examcompass and was woeful. although i do think the actual comptia exam will word the questions differently.
    just started taking notes on what i've learnt. Whilst i don't think the content is too advanced for me there is a very large volume of knowledge required.
    so far i have only been studying 220 - 1001

    Thanks Kopite,

    As mentioned i have gone through his videos. I would probably like a book/PDF to read. Got any PDF links, struggling to find one, just spam so far.

    Thanks

    Don't lose confidence, you will pass this exam. It does sound like there's a bit more you could do to make it easier for yourself as the others have mentioned. A good book is the common theme I've seen when people attempt the A+

    The following are a few resources you can consider:

    - CertBlaster provides free notes on its website for your exam:
    Click on the Menu. Choose Learning. Choose Exam Notes for A+ 1001 and 1002.

    - Udemy has a practice tests course by Jason Dion for 1001.

    - The paperback edition of Exam Cram by David Prowse is a good option.

    - Professor Messer has course notes which you can purchase.

    - Professor Messer holds free live and recorded study groups for your exam.

    Good luck with your studies!

    You know what mught help you. Binning the study off for a few days/hours. When you get back into it, try the reading a book with some decent tunes on, whatever takes your fancy. I find where I work, I can isolate the noise, I get so much done, basically on Friday, i blitzed through 3 days worth of sticking problems, well that and black coffee ha ha
