Going this friday to take my A+ exam

Going this friday to take my A+ exam

Going this friday to take my A+ exam

(OP)
I am trying to start a career in the IT field and I am a little nervous about taking the test, i have built many pc's over the years, I have been studying the test out video series  that came with my text book (I am a first qtarter student. i have taken may practice tests and even have one on my Droid phone. I would really like some feed back on how difficult these tests are? how about the Network+ and Security+ are they much harder? Will companies hire someone with the certs if they have not completed their college coursework yet?

RE: Going this friday to take my A+ exam

for me, i was very happy when i saw very few printer questions. otherwise i would have not done very well.

RE: Going this friday to take my A+ exam

I took the A+ a couple months ago, and just did the Network+ a few weeks ago.  They are test, but not too terribly difficult if you know the material.  BAsically, study things that are testable, like charts and Protocols and what not.  

As for Hiring, Certs are different than coursework.  A cert demonstrates mastery of certain domain.  So getting a BS is Comp Sci, is not going to yeild the same as an A+ cert.  They are just different.  What A+ can do, from my point of view, is help you gain an entry level position.  

Good luck and lett us know how you do.

The book i had was "Network+  All-in One Exam Guide" by Mike Meyers.  I thought it was good, but also though that the CompTia A+ i learned led into the Network +.  

Good Luck...
