Hey guys, I could use some advice for trying to get A+ certified. Me and a friend at work are studying to get certified for a raise at work. We decided to make study guides for each other and test each other. I finished chapter one, had 14 questions, and thought I had a pretty good overview. He had only made it through 12 pages and had a super detailed question list and chapter 1 goes through page 40.
How detailed do you guys think we need to study our A+ book? I want to hurry and get through this and take the test, but I also want to be prepared because work will only pay for the first take. After that we're on our own. If any of you have been through the recent stuff and have some good advice please let me know. I know the older tests had a lot of info, but they also had lifetime certification. Nowadays, they seem to only cover what is relevant, but you only stay certified 3 years.
Thanks for the help and also, I'm not looking for answers, just advice. We have the study guides, I just want to be prepared, but not waste too much time over-preparing.
Btw, I have lots of hardware experience, but my friend is more of a casual user and not heavy into hardware. We both have decent software experience now from work at the hospital.
