Hi guys (and gal's)

I will be taking my A+ OS exam later next month, so i want to get as much revision (That is relevant) to the exam as possible in. The problem i see is that they want you to memorise Paths to certain places, which i think is pretty unfair since if you were actually working with the software you could (well, i could) easily navigate to where it wants me to go.

I am doing the older version (220 - 302) which will finnish later this year (Im in the UK)

I have checked whats on your site, but compared to the A+ hardware notes, i cant see much apart from "upgrading" notes.

If you know of any exam software or links it would be worth me revising let me know, i really need the help! (BTW, i have used all the OS/s that it requires you to use) but that doesnt mean i can remember everything like i have a picture memory! lol.

    I took the OS test last year, the objectives have changed slightly since I took it. I noticed a good portion of the test was tech support (such as troubleshooting problems in the office or over the phone). Was thrown a curve with Laser Printing questions (3 or 4 of them covering printing process). Definately learn boot process of 95/98/ME vs. 2K/XP like the back of your hand. I scored a 718 on this test if I remember right, wasnt as bad as I thought it would be.

    I just took this test last week. I would say just use each OS as much as possible while studying the objectives. If you have a decent amount of time using each OS, narrowing down the answers shouldn't be a problem.

    I personally felt the OS portion was much easier, maybe its because of the exposure and the tech support i did during that time. the test does ask some obscure random things but, all in all it wasn't bad if you put time into studying it you shouldn't have problems

    I'm hopeful by this point you have downloaded the Objectives. Check out the TechNotes and Practice Exams on this site. Post any questions in the forums.

    Thyanx guys, i really appreciate the responses. I got the objectives when i started the course, ill check em again just in case.

    Hopefully when i post again it will be that im A+ certified.

    Then its on to the Network+ (Which i will probably find easier to revise!)

    I take my OS test on the 17th and I am worried because there are a lot of things like the ntldr.sys, boot.ini, msdos.sys, config.sys and autoexec.bat that I just don't feel comfortable with. I think I will pass but really would like to feel a little more comfortable about it ya know?
    I passed H/W test awhile back but I consider myself better at the OS side, but who knows.
    Any experiences with this that someone would like to share?
    Its crazy because I have been doing IT Admin for 11 years and am just now getting my certs.
