    Hi Guys I have until August 2010 to ahchieve the A+ Exam, I am using Mike Myers 6th Edition of the book. I have worked in I.T for about 4 years now ( 2 years as an 1st line support, 2 years as I.T Technician) I have now decided to get some certs under my belt starting with the A+. My question is how do you guys study and filter and retain the knowledge you need to know?

    Can you point me in the direction of some A+ practice exams? I'm going to go for the Essentials and then the Exam 220-602. How hard is the essentials should I just book the exam now and smash the hell out of it? or is revision a good idea? lol

    I used the 6th edition when I did the A+ and also PC technician street smarts by James Pyles.

    Since you alread have 4 years experience you may not need to do any studying or just a little bit of revising so I would recommend Mike Meyers' passport book which is essentially a revision book.

    For practice exams you can get free ones from www.proprofs.com and buy ones from trancender and preplogic.

    However I would highly recommend www.boson.com for A+ practice exams, if you use Boson you wont go wrong.

    I used preplogic and transcender but had the chance to write a review of the Boson exam sims and I know I would have got a better score if I used the Boson exams but they were not available when I was taking the A+.

    I actually found the the Essentials harder than the 220-602 but most people find it the other way around I'm just a bit more hardware orientated.

    If you study and practice then you will do fine and from your experience level I doubt you will have any trouble.
