      I got my A+ cert when I was a sophmore in high school. It's pretty easy, but I also knew how to build and repair PCs before I started studying it. Mainly I just read the book and the book came with some software.

      Only thing I recommend to people is pay attention to the printer stuff. I didn't pay attention to details on that part of the book, thinking it was a computer ceritification so they wouldn't ask too much about printers. I failed the hardware test the first time I took it because of that Went home, read up on printers and then took it again and passed.

      So yea, I'd say just use a book. Usually they have questions to help you at the end of the chatpers or a CD-ROM in the back. The test is pretty simple. I've heard otherwise about Network+ though. A lot of people told me that the knowledge isn't the hard part, it's that they word the questions in a strange way.

        Go to your nearest Border's / Barnes & Noble bookstore and look for the A+ for Dummies book. Then "borrow" the CD-ROM out of the back of it.

          Once you are all done studying you can find some good test questions at
 . I wouldnt use this as your only source of studying because you wont learn anything. But basically they are questions right off the test.

          I wouldnt stress the test that much, its really quite simple.

            I don't remember any questions about ****ing in either exam, but I took an earlier version. There was DOS, win95 and laser printers in mine.

              I second the reccomendation, but I wouldn't sweat it too much if you have a pretty good understanding of computers. The test isn't really that hard. Of course I'm not reccomending blowing off studying for it, but don't get worked up over it.

                Get the dummies A+ book.... it is what I used several years ago. I think they have updated the test or I would offer my book cheap.

                  I remember that one. Only thing I didn't know was the fire extinguisher stuff, so before the test I went and pulled one off the wall and read the destructions on it and it told what the A B C types were for. I think I might have missed one question on the whole test.

                    Think I used the exam cram software but that was 3 years ago. I understand they've changed the test since then. Nice thing about it is it also does Network+ and CCNA which I was also studying for at the time. Too bad I never used any of those certifications.....
