Has anyone recently taken the A+ Cert test? I just got a job with a company which requires me to get mine within 90 days of hire. I am very confident in computers (Who here isn't right?) and know quite a bit about them, have torn them down, rebuilt them, replaced many a mainboard and have worked the last two years or so in a frontline helpdesk job fixing computers for my county. I have an average understanding of DHCP, DNS, TCIP/IP items as well as have grown up as a kid in the DOS era before Windows 1.0 was released. With all of this though, I know for a fact that this will only get me so far in the test.
I have downloaded a CCNA practice app for my phone and so far so good, but I am missing some questions and am getting a bit paranoid about the acronym part of things.
I talked to a co-worker which took his in 1996 (and grandfathered in), and said it was a progressive test, the more you got right, the less you had to answer?
