Just passed A+hardware. Wasnt what i expected. Im glad i read all the books, learnt a lot. although in this test i found the books kind of useless. Maybe having experience with computers would help, only had 3weeks to learn within my course. Had a couple of network/printers/cabling questions . apart from that id say 70% of this test was helpdesk related / scenarios. but hey a pass is a pass. My score was **** 550 heh. i hope my future employees dont get to see the scores. The only way to get better is to have hands on. flag books and that.

    A pass is a pass. And just like no one puts their GPA on a resume, I've never heard of someone asking about scores on exams. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen, I've never met anyone who has been asked and I've not been asked myself.

    Hi, congrats, can you explan what you mean, help desk related questions, 70 percent.

    It would seem a waste of time, if Mike Meyers, and all of the othe
    many companies, including Comptia who say that the test questions
    will reflect the A PLUS OBJECTIVES, go to the effort to put out all
    these books cbt', etc, and then the test has nothing to do with
    the objectives. Rick

    I would imagine by 'helpdesk questions', he probably means questions like, "If X & Y were to happen you would...A, B, C or D"

    Having taken 3 CompTIA exams since July, I can also say that there are several customer service-type questions on the test, this may be what he was alluding to as well. These types of questions are based on common sense and/or real-world experience, and are not going to be covered very deeply in any book.
