I justed passed the A+ Core with 558. Going for the A+ OS in a few weeks. I just have one question regarding that is the os exam harder or easier than the hardware. I am getting some people saying it is harder and some saying it is easier..

    As for which is harder, it totally depends on your own personal knowledge of the material, and the randomness of the test questions. Some people are more hardware-oriented, some more software-oriented. I thought the OS test was a little more difficult, but I scored higher on it than on the hardware, so it's really hard to say.

    I personally thought the hardware test was a little harder, but I think its because I tried so hard to memorize all the little details like DMA Channels, IRQ's, Memory Addresses, Beep Codes, CPU Sockets & bus speeds, A million different flavors of SCSI...etc.

    I think most people would say the OS was harder though.

    I thought that the o/s was closer to the course material and that you need to know your stuff. With the hardware you could figure a few things out from the questions.
    Try til it hurts then try some more

    OS was harder for me. I think it all depends on your background.
    Good luck on your OS component, remember to review things from core exam!
