I wasn't sure where to post this so if i did it in the wrong section, please move it.

I was wondering if anyone had any advice. I really want to get my A+ certification this year, and I recently got a few books to study. I was wondering if anyone has any advice they could give me about the test, as This will be my first time taking it.

Hi Elamdri,

I would say study study study. If you can get your hands on a computer, walk through the things they tell you about in the books. I am a visual learner, so I have to see things as I learn them. :thumbsup: Try to find computers with different versions of Windows. Learn how to do things using the start menu, or shortcuts. There are also practice tests you can take that will show you your weak areas. In my case, those tests helped me a lot.

Read over the affect of static electricity and safety... you will see questions on those!

I think the hardest part for me was the different ways one can do things in windows.

As with all tests, get a good nights sleep, eat a good breakfast and give it your best shot.

Good luck,

If you google on "free certification exam" you'll see a lot of references.

Here's a link to " Intelligentedu.com" to start you off.

This site provides several other usable links/sites.
