your lucky they have the new a+. the 2003 A+ certification was a pain in the ass, because of the stupid shit you had to memorize
Yeah, all the dos stuff was wack. Knowing the hex memory location for the videocard driver is pretty pointless now.
I took the old hardware test from 2001...they still had ISA slots on there and questions like "what is the only processor without an L2 cache?" (which was the first celeron processors in case you were wondering
It wasn't incredibly hard to pass both hardware and software tests... If you know the difference in ddr1 and 2 and all the acronyms the hardware one isn't that bad... the software one was a bit harder but not too bad. I just used Mike Myers A+ study book that I got from the library... you can also save money by purchasing a test "voucher" instead of paying for the exam outright...got mine from http://www.totalsem.com/
for my A+ and Network+
I had networking classes in college so the network+ was pretty easy for me...it's basically just all the hardware on the network side along with the OSI model and different networking protocols/connection types.
