You've all done it - I'm about to try!

Hi all,

I am taking both A+ exams on Wednesday of next week. I am both excited and nervous (excited at the thought of passing and nervous at the thought of failing!). I just wanted to say, I have spent a good hour or two browsing the posts in this forum, and have found most to be quite useful. I have also, of course, found some terrifying when people who have failed the exams have detailed some of the horrifics they went through in the exams!

In some ways I feel I am as well prepared as I can be, as I have studied hard and ripped many an old PC to bits, swapped components over, reinstalled Windows, upgraded Windows etc etc. I guess what I have learnt from looking at posts on this site is that you can never be too careful!

With that in mind, I have Sat & Sun to do the last refreshers and a few practice exams, and I have the day before just to look over notes and hopefully ensure all relevant knowledge is tucked away somewhere in the back of my mind! Oh, but how I know some awkward bugger of a question is going to throw me!

I have found the practice exams to be quite useful - particulalry because of the trick questions, and the ambigious nature of some questions. I guess this is because sometimes in the "real world" simple things trick you and catch you out - as I just found out when attempting to set up a dual boot ME & 2000!

Anyway, I hope that I can come back on Wednesday and say I passed, I passed, I passed!

Thanks for your help

    good luck, i do not know why ou are doing both at the same day, i did them both in 2 months. not a hard exam. if you feel ready take them at the same day, other wise take them within a week of each other.

    just my $.02

    Not that hard of a test, if you study.
    She don't come, and I don't follow.

    good luck man, you should be able to write stuff down (prometric test centers allow it); but you can't bring anything in to test.

    oh and... deep breath in, close your eyes and just let all your fears go out the window while your infront of that test
