    Hi guys,

    Thank you for posting these tech notes, they have been extremely useful. I start my studying for the comptia a+ and mcitp through a company soon and have just been plowing through a+ information and stumbled upon this! It is fantastic! I've only scanned them so far and my printer has just run out of ink... arrr...

    I just noticed that the Free practice exams for MCSE MCSA CCNA and A+ certifications thread could do with some updating if these files are still supported and updated?

    I don't know how up-to-date the others are I only noticed because I know more about internal hardware and cpu's than anything else at the moment :)

    thanks, Ali Hill

    EDIT: Looking at them a few ofthem need updating, especially with the new 801 and 802 exams due for release but I guess these aren't maintained any more.

    Thanks for these TechNotes just joined the site a couple weeks ago and am in the process of getting my AAS in Computer Information Technology - Network Administrator and Support (CCNA - Track) at North Lake College here in Irving, Texas. I should of done all this when I was in the Army for 6 years cause I messed with alot of routers, switches, and cisco IP phones for 3 years and 15 months of that in Iraq doing it and I had a blast learning.

    So the experience is there but now I need the credentials to follow and will be first working on getting the A+ cert while obtaining my degree.

    Hello,thanks for the simplified explanation on printers.Am currently preparing for A+ 220-801 and 802 and i found the printers explanation very complicated to grasp in a way.Oh yes,and i have noticed that in this book they have added a daisy wheel printer which also fall under impact printers but its not as complicated though.
