Passed both exams, now I'm certified!!!
I have now passed both the A+ exams, passing the OS on Wednesday and the Core a couple of weeks before. I found the hardware section relitivly easy but felt the OS exam was alot harder (it may have been just the luck of the draw with the questions). Anyway the main thing is I've passed and many thanks to this web site which helped me with my study and what to expect from the exams.
