Goning to take the A+ test in a few weeks and was wondering what format the questions come in. Is the A+ computer based and the OS a written exam?

    Hello Gerald C

    Your best bet is to visit www.comptia.org to get the info on the exams. Both are multiple choice exams, about 80 questions each with a scoring range of 100 - 900. You can pick up the objectives for the exam here as well as see a small sample exam.

    Also, visit sites like this and www.mcmcse.com for practise exam questions.

    Pass mark for Core is 515 and for OS is 505.

    Good luck!

    They are both computer based. All questions are multiple choice and you get 2 hours to complete each test. Also, be forewarned that a good number to the multiple choice questions are in the format of "select all that apply" - so they kind of differ from traditional multiple choice tests.

    They also have kind of a neat deal where you can check a box labelled "review" on any questions you are unsure of. Then, after answering the final question, you have the option of returning to any questions you've flagged to re-assess them.

    Good luck!
