    It varies. According to the CompTIA site you can have up to 90 questions on the test, though I've never seen that many. All my CompTIA test have been about 75 questions. However, not every question counts. Some are questions that are being evaluated to become actual test questions. I would say you can miss about 15 and still be safe. Just remember not to over think the questions. If they don't explicitly state something that you are considering in your answer then don't consider it. First thought, best thought.


    Good Luck!

    I had 80 on mine, I know each question counts a different amount of points so no actual number you can miss, but 15 would be a good reference point.

    I had 85 on my 801 and 80 on the 802 but I don't remember any question where I thought "that's not in the objectives".

    The questions are weighted with varying point values based on some algorithm. I would not focus on getting questions incorrect. Instead, I would focus on knowing the material so it reflects my knowledge so when called upon to use said knowledge, I actually know what I am doing.

    A+ is one of easiest certifications one can obtain, albeit it takes two exams to earn the title. Focus on the WIN!

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?
