    i would not learn all the ieee for a+. you do not need to know them all for network+ either!!

    learn the ones relating to ethernet, token ring and wireless as they are the ones that might crop up.

    learn the different topologies, network media and connectors. a+ does not go into networking in any great depth.

    Actually about 21 or so of them..... but

    I don't think you will need to know all of them - just remember the common ones

    802.2 LLC
    802.3 CSMA/CD (Ethernet)
    802.4 Token Passing Bus
    802.5 Token Ring
    802.8 Fibre Optic
    802.11 Wireless Lan Medium Access Control (MAN)

    That should help you pass the exam.... BUT that would be the network+ and not A+. For A+ just knowing there is IEEE should suffice.
    Whoops, am I just having a blonde moment and you are referring to the IEEE std for printer ports icon_rolleyes.gif Too much study and not enuff fun me thinks ..... Whats that Homer used to say ....mmmmm need beer?
    As for PIOs I don't think you will get questioned on them but I would advise reviewing them anyways.
