send mail transfer protocol, https, http, pop 3 ===== Yes you should know these
usb like how many devices 127 ===== Good to know in the off chance they ask it, but they didnt ask that of me, It more more what meets criteria A+B better, Firewire or USB (just know your data transfer speeds)
firewire 63 devices ===== Not for me, doesnt mean they arn't on it though
also loopback commands ===== Yup, you should know both Linux and Windows, you should also know basic things like DOS variables and commands like CLS and Winver, just basic commands
windows 7 questions of paths/directories? ===== Only thing path based I got asked about was default directories for the core win7 and Linux, not so much user profiles or root install stuff. They also still ask multiple choice questions for things like what OS support NTFS

Again, its only the most basic runline command type things. Such as ifconfig.
ook at it this way the 701 and 702 are testing your basic ability and knowledge to repair and configure a computer. There are realistically only 2 major OS out there. Unix - which is what Mac and Linux is based off, and then there is Windows.
For windows know how to navigate the runline and use the common tools like copy (useful in case you screw up the reg and have a hive copy laying around), and how to jump from one directory to another.
If you know how to do it in Windows runline learn how to do it in Unix, just incase they do ask you about it. I was asked only 1 Unix question and it was "whats the command show NIC interface configuration screen?" (not verbatim of course)
The test is not supposed to be easy or everyone would have it and no one would require study. Just study the Objectives and you'llpass. I know that's a tall order there's a lot of info to go over, but that's the point. They want you to have a broad understanding of how they work as a total. A+ is the foundation after-all. You wouldn't build a 70 story structure without setting a strong base first, would you? The darn thing would come tumbling down the second it was under pressure.
If you want a good practice test to user try transcender. They are much harder than the real test and if you can do well on those you can pass. I found myself making 60% on them and I passed easily.
