How in depth must I study for A+ 801

How much do I really need to remember for the exam?
Storage devices: Do I need to know the capacity and speeds of all tape drives?

More importantly for me..., how much information about CPU's and sockets must I know?
The 801 objectives listed 5 intel sockets and 9 AMD sockets but didn't even mention specific CPU's
I memorized all 14 sockets and how many pins each one has.
Do I need to know all CPU's and what sockets they go to? Do I need to know speeds and cache sizes?

I took 4 different practice tests and not a single one even asked anything specific about any CPU or socket.

    I did the 701/702 exams and there were only one or two questions on sockets and CPU's in the exams. I believe that type of question was important for the 600 series exams - there were less of them in the 700 exam series so, if the trend holds true, the 800 series exams should again only have a few such questions.

    Read up on mike Meyers a+ prep book. He will literally tell you what is and what isn't important. I'm reading it now and so far its been great.

    This is the same book I'm reading and it's very informative.
