    if you get the mike meyers all in one exam guide which covers everything about the A+ exams the answer is in there, you need to know everything as in regard to entry level technician jobs for the A+ exams.

    cat 5,5e and 6 are used for networks the rest are used for other things which I can't remember right now.

    UTP stands for unshielded twisted pair, as there two wires twisted around each other and are not shileded.

    Might be a little something to memorise for the A+ exams for both of you,

    CAT1 is a standard phoneline
    CAT2 upto 4Mpbs
    CAT3 upto 16Mbps
    CAT4 upto 20Mbps
    CAT5 upto 100Mbps
    CAT5e upto 1Gbps
    CAT6 upto 10Gbps

    Spy, as GBL said, it would be a good idea to purchase Mike Meyers All in One 6th Edition for the A+, all these questions you've asked today are covered really well in the book. Im sure with a read of it, you'd feel alot more confident. :)

    Just to add, I know that even though it might not be the best book for networking but the Mike Meyers net+ book has a good basic explanation regarding the cable types, not just UTP but also Coax cables.
