first and foremost i am on a high today as i passed my hardware with 740 and this site has been an excellent resource tool to have.

Secondly i am now onto the OS section of the a+ and i would like to know what areas/ things you guys think are important to know and are common on the exams? as i feel this will be a good starting point to start looking.

    nel, I think we did this on the Core already ;)

    -You need to know the objectives.
    -All the areas are equally important, but you can use the percentage guides from CompTIA to help you budget your time better.
    -The more hands-on experience you have the better you will likely do and the easier it will be for you to review and prepare for the exam.
    -Each candidates exam is different. You could end up with all 9x type questions, you may have 1 from 9x and none from XP/W2K or a ton on paths to upgrade. You could have questions on networking (basics) or not a single one.

    So, your best bet is to download a copy of the OS objectives and go through them. Spend more time on the areas that are more uncomfortable for you and less on the stuff you get.


    The TechNotes here should prove helpful.
    Meyers Book is still highly recommended.
    And again, as much hands-on the various OSs you can possibly get your hands on.

    You'll do well. Sounds like you nailed the Core :)

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