I am currently enrolled in college to become a network administrator. I have completed my first two courses. I am preparing to take the A+ exams in the near future. my question is what kind of material is covered in the test regarding extra security features like key fobs and smart cards?

Go here:


Then click the link on the right that says "See what the exam covers".  Then register with CompTIA and download the exam objectives.

They've revamped the A+ recently so those of us who have it already probably won't be able to say for surer.  I personally don't recall anything on smart cards or fobs on the A+, but that was years ago.

RE: study tips

Have you taken the test yet? I'm currently studying to pursue that route. I'm studying on my own through the comptia A+ textbook by Mike Meyers.
The text seems to explain a good amount of what to expect.
