What are the essential tools found in a PC technician toolkit that will be covered on the hardware core exam?

    I don't think that I would worry too much about that. Meyers has a question about that on his practice test, but I haven't heard of anyone getting a tool question on the CompTIA exam.
    Mike has a list of things he says is necessary, but from experience I have used a lot more - the manufacturer of the computer kind of leads there as lately I have run across both TORX and STORX (os is the TORXS) on a couple systems.
    If I was doing a list it would include;
    Phillips Screwdriver - #1 & #3
    Blade Screwdriver - #2
    Long Nose Pliers
    Hog Bristle Brush
    3/16 hex driver
    long nose tweezers
    Wrist Strap
    Multi Tester
    That would be a bare minimum - my kit is about treble that .... lol

    tools may not be questioned on, but the ones that could arise are multimeters, drivers, chip-pullers.
