    Try to focus on:

    *Basic Networking Concepts (Topologies,Wireless, Ethernet, Internet Connectivity and etc)
    *Installing Devices (Floppy, Hard Drive, CD-rom, RAM,Ide Cables and etc)
    *Upgrading PC's
    *Distinguish between popular CPU types, Motherboard components and SCSI devices.
    *Printers and Printer problems
    *IRQ's, DMA's, I/O addresses

    There are obviousley more objectives but that's the kind of concepts i got hit with on the exam.

    First, check the Objectives . Make sure you can answer one question on each objective, even if it's a question you make up. Second, get some good study material. I used Mike Myers AIO guide, which I liked. I also used this sites FREE Technotes . I would reccomend using a second source for studies, to cover any overlaps. Thirdly, and maybe most importantly....STAY AWAY FROM BRAINDUMPS!!! Check here , for a good article explaining ****.

    Remember, it's not impossible, if you want it.

    Stick with knowing the objectives and look for exam advisory/tips in the books you are reading. icon_study.gif Most importantly----> the night before, shut the book up early in the evening, do something fun and get a good night's sleep. sleeping.gif
