i wanna know if its hard to get A+ certified and where do i get the book to start studying
From what I've seen, it's very easy. As for where to find books, maybe any major bookstore on the planet?
Library, then a used book store, then the internet, finally ebay
There's nothing wrong with taking it. Do what you can to get your foot in the door. I have it along with a ton of other certs, I don't regret it
I'd suggest a good book and do lots of practice tests. The tricky thing with A+ exams is that some questions have 2 or 3 right answers, you just need to pick the best one for that certain situation.
thx on the info
I have it, and it was a waste of time.
despite me knowing much more than you?
I have it as well. It's a good starting point.
sure, it wont win you the job, but another line on your resume is good. proves that you took the time and spent the cash on something that you didnt necessarily need. certs are always good, regardless of the difficulty
I have it. It's a good starting point but nothing advanced. It shows you atleast know basic about computers.
network+ and Cisco CCNA are much better credentials considered by employers.
and both of them combined is ruffly the same price as A+.
Have it too and it was not hard to pass. As for the comments about what it's worth, it's not worth much but just shows that you have some basic computer repair/troubleshooting knowledge.
Real world experience is better, but some companies do require certs and A+ is the most basic one.
If you are gonna take the test, go to Barnes and Noble or a similar store, buy an Exam Cram book for the test and you usually get a coupon for a few bucks off the test voucher.
CCNA is 4-semesters, btw. Perhaps your school teaches it in 3, but there are 4 distinct parts.
My highschool gave me free classes and paid for my exam, too.
I wish my HS had stuff like that. Not that I'm even interested in getting a CCNA, but it would have given me something to do in HS.
not sure how it works where you are, but the two A+ exams combined here are $340cnd, and the ccna is well under 200, 150 or 170 i believe.
I still have the books, and it's divided into 4 parts
