icon_sad.gif Could anyone tell me, is it possible to pass the A+ exams without any hands-on experience, I have tried to get some real experience but have not been able too ~ Thanks Jai

    Yes it is very possible. Our administrative assistant (secretary) who basically has no hands-on with computers (beyond being good at MS Office stuff) passed the hardware portion of the A+ a few weeks ago and is scheduled to take the OS portion soon. She is smart with a Masters degree in Business, but again no hands-on with PC's.
    All things are possible, only believe.

    Probably the only hands on experience you may need or that might be helpful is to crack open the case to your PC and take a look at the parts, and possibly their general location on the motherboard and case.

    Try to do at least as danman suggests and take your computer apart and learn the geography of your motherboard.
