I just passed the core test Friday. I am in the MCSE program and took classes for A+. First 4 questions about blew me away on the test. After that I coasted through it.
I used accurate braindumps and studied very hard using mostly ExamCram book and Transcender tests. I will be taking A+ software in 2 weeks using these same methods.
I resently passed A+ with a 92 on the core and 83, dos-win. I used the dummies book and the new riders top score softwhere test. The test had identical questions that the new riders had and if you buy the extra 700 questions from new rider's, you will pass
I JUST PASSED THE A+ EXAMS ON FRIDAY, JUNE 9,2000. I SCORED A 94 ON WIN/DOS AND 98 ON CORE.
I TOOK A COURSE AT A NEARBY COLLEGE AND USED VARIOUS STUDY GUIDES. IF YOU KNOW YOUR WAY AROUND THE VARIOUS OSes REQUIRED FOR WIN/DOS AND IRQ'S, I/O ADDRESSES, ETC. FOR CORE YOU WILL BE FINE. THE TEST WAS EASIER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE.
I passed the A+ exam with a 95% on the Core and 94% on DOS/Windows. I have to admit that I have done a lot of hands on with DOS through Win95. It certainly helped a lot. Just a note, if your trying to pass the exam by just pulling information off the internet, I would advise against it. For beginners, a good study guide is a great starter. The Dummies books helped me pick out any weak areas as they were for the intermediate to advanced user level. If you find that you are confused by the topics contained in these advanced books, they need more attention. Realize, you probably wont see test questions from CompTIA on the web, that would comprimise the test. A good amount of study, hands on, and dedication to the subject matter will help you to join the long list of A+ certified techs, and impress your future employer.
I will be going for my Network+ certification, in the mean time, best wishes on your attemps. Its a great feeling to be certified.
took the core for a+ today. i passed with an 82%,but i was hoping for at least a score in the high 80's.still,not bad for someone with absolutely no experience.i took a 16 week course in the subject,so that obviously helped,along with the heathkit simulation tests.i kept hearing that the exam was tricky,but i really didn't find that to be the case.in fact,i thought is was pretty sraight-forward.
I passed the A+ in march, I did it on my own, and now teach a course on PC service and repair with a focus on passing the A+ at the end of 12 weeks..
I passed the Core test a few weeks ago and finally passed the Dos/Windows test on Wednesday. Now it's time to get a job. I probably studied from every A+ help site out there. I have a good 500 pages I printed from different sites with test questions or stuff that they said was on there test so it helped alot and I would recommend anyone out there that hasn't taken the test, to do the same as I did. I would stay up till 2 or 3 in the morning printing and studying. Before I passed the Dos/Windows test I started my A+ help site and hope that you would come and see it. I have tried to cover both tests the best I could and hope it helps those that are going to take the test. I would like to thank everyone that has an A+ help site because without you, I probably wouldn't be A+ Certified right now. The A+ Study Guide by David Frost was a big help too and I highly recommend that book to everyone. If your interested my url is http://www.crosswinds.net/~pctechonline

I used the SYBEX and ExamCram books along with the practice tests from www.freepractice.com I wrote my core exam last night and was finished within 20mins. I ended up with high eighties for a score. Next up is the DOS/WIN!
I just took the A+ (DOS) test. The test did not reflect a entry level position for a computer tech. It had several question on HIMEM.SYS, and one .DAO and NetBEUI. I used Microsoft Press A+ certification and Marcraft International as study material. None of the above question were address in the study material. My test score was 60, passing score is 66. The test was very diffcult. About 15 questions were not addressed by the study material.
I used the A+ exam cram to help me prepare for the test. It helped a lot but the internet and sites like this helped the most.
i took the core almost a week ago and passed with a 82%. you see the trick is to cram,cram,cram. know your irq, dma channels, communication ports, know how a lazer printer works (know the steps)is a must, and you should do alright. i was a bit nerves going in, i really wasn't sure what was going to be on the test but i had taken many practice test on different sites to give myself some confidence. when i went in most of the question on my exam were ALMOST word for word questions from "examnotes.net" (the core part at least). now it's on to the dos\win part of the test, time to be nerves again. good luck and have some faith in yourself, and you'll do fine.
I had a college class for the A+ certification test in Fall of 99, and we used Marcraft's "The New A+ Certification Training Guide" with its accompanying lab manual. It worked well, but was too big to use as a review. For reviewing, I used IDG's "A+ Certification for Dummies." Just the right size to use as a review of the high points.
I have finished the A+ Course and passed both exams 85% and 80%. I have just been offered a position teaching at the college that I did the course at. So for me the course has been very sucessful. I encourage you all to do the A+ it is not hard but takes some serious effort on your part. My course was 3 Months long and cost $7,000 New Zealand Dollars but as I have scored a good paying job straight away I think that the money was well worth it. The books that I used were the A+ Complete by David Groth, and the Tenth Edition of Repairing & Upgrading by Scott Mueller. Both books are excellent value. Do it, it isn't that hard and it will give you a good start in the industry
I just passed the A+ Core Exam today with a 96%, I studied using the Cram Session Study guide/Transcender Test Disk and the A+ Complete Study Guide. Almost everyone in my class used the Transcender Test CD's and all have gotten scores of 80% and above.....most in the 90's. Good luck to all of you.
