Someone that took the 2003 version of the A+ test said that IRQs were on it. Does the 2006 version focus on IRQs as well?

the old version of the A+ exam is no longer used as of june 30th last year (that was the one with the seperate A+ hardware and A+ software) The new exam sceam is a little different, it is a combination of diffenert exams you can take but u have to pass 2 of them to get your A+, i would suggest going for technician's exam and the essentials exam, they were pretty simple to do and i don't think there was much on IRQs, if there were it was pretty basic stuff like the system clock, mouse, keyboard, nothing too hard to remember.

its best to know about IRQ's. although irq conflicts are few and far between. if you get caught being stumped by something as basic as an IRQ conflict, consider yourself fired. lol.

Know your COM Port IRQ's, but other than that there's not much on it UNLESS you are take the Depot Technician secondary.

A+ 2006 is split between two mandatory certs, with one common one called A+ Essentials. Then there are three secondaries: IT Technician, Remote Support, and Depot Technician.

IT Technician is a good, well-rounded cert between hardware, operating system, and customer service knowledge.

Remote Support is more about customer service, operating system, with a bit of hardware.

Depot Technician is largely hardware specific, operationg system, with a little bit of customer service.

You only need to take Essentials and one secondary to get your A+.
