I am defintietly pleased considering I only took two weeks to really get prepared for the exam.

There were many questions conerning printers, and very few on IRQ. I was suprised there were no IO ranges or memory locations.

Most of it seemed to center on troubleshooting and upgrades.

Now onto the OS!!

    Congrats on the pass!

    Good luck on OS.

    Yep, printers are there--always. You can't get away from them. I took Windows 2000 Pro last week, and I was really surprised at the number of printer questions I had. But, I shouldn't be surprised, because I work in an enterprise network, and get lots of printer calls.

    congrats on the pass. I took the a+ core last week and got very luckly. There was only a few printer questions and a lot of networking questions. CompTIA should just make a Printer+ cert to **** all the printer questions into.

    A couple questions on memory concerning the number of pins as I remember. Maybe one or two questions addressing cpus and sockets although I can't remember specically what they might have been. The practice tests I took helped for sure. I took the ones from here along with some from Preplogic and Measureup. There were more troubleshooting scenarios on the actual exam than there were on any of the practice tests.

    Lots of questions about printers. Be sure to study printers well enough to where you feel you have a good grasp on the material. There were a fair number of questions on networking as well.
