    CompTIA's website is here, http://www.comptia.org/certification/a/glancebox.aspx

    This gives their overview for the two exams for A+ certification.

    Most people who take the A+ exams think that the OS portion is more difficult than the Core.

    CompTIA says that there are approximately 80 questions, and that you have to get 505 points to pass the OS portion. This is based on a scale of 100-900. How CompTIA determines that scale or how many correct questions that 505 points represents, the CompTIA folks keep to themselves. Some of the questions may not even be included in the score. Sometimes they will put some questions in the mix that they just want to determine the difficulty of, before they put them in the exam.

    Just study hard and get some experience and you will pass.

    No I did not feel one exam was 'harder' than the other. I worked in the industry a number of years prior to learning about the A+ and was more than prepared when I finally broke down and took the exams.

    Some people have more of an interest in Hardware or OS so the exam may seem 'easier' but certainly they are very similar regarding the level of knowledge needed to pass.

    FWIW
