    Thanks! Any idea of how tough" 701 is? I'm not asking you to break NDA and I'm sure "tough" is a relative term here.

    The A+ is the first certification that I am attempting. I have 10 yrs of helpdesk, desktop support, and server hardware knowledge and I took a practice test and got about 50% wrong.

    I bought a study guide book my Mike Myers (certification passport) and that helped me a lot. I still struggled and was getting around 70% after reading the book and studying. I found that the thing that helped me the most was finding as many practice questions that I could and downloading them and taking tests, then comparing my answers and researching the ones I got wrong.

    After that I was getting about 75-77% on all of the practice exams. They are harder than the actual test. On saturday I took the 701 and passed with an 810. So many of the questions are common sense and a lot of them that are tough give 2 totally bogus answers so you have a 50/50 shot of getting it right.

    Good luck on your test. I take my next one, the 702 this Saturday.

    Also I had 90 minutes. Maybe they gave you 120 to factor in the time it takes to fill out the paperwork when you get there.

    Passed with score of 825! Now onto 702 next week.

    Study materials used:

    *CompTIA A+ 2009 In Depth, 3rd Edition by Jean Andrews

    *Professor Messer's Comptia A+ videos.
    *I didn't use any practice exams, I think that would have felt a bit like cheating.
    *Old pentium system system that I could take apart and get hands on(Which by the way in the process of learning, turned into a nifty file server that can be remotely managed)
