I just made a dumb mistake
I was reading through the Mike Myers All In One A+ Exam Guide. Well, the OS exam objectives begin at chapter 12, and that's where I had began reading the book (I had passed the Core HW before purchasing the book). Anyway, I didn't realize that some of the chapters (from chapter 12 and on) still include core hardware objectives, and a few are completely core hardware objectives. So, my mistake was me reading over a bunch of core hardware information that I didn't need to read over.
