    Just wondering what the test entails, how hard it is, how often to test centers give it? Is it a monthly thing, quarterly, bi-yearly? I have all the media and such I need to pass it, but would like to hear from some people who have been through the process. Also if you have any good Videos or eBooks for A+ or Network+, please post them, I haven't found any good ones for Network+. Thanks guys.

    Hey

    Ive done both the A+ and the Network+ exams, im not sure about the schedules of the examinations, i done it through a training center who organization an exam date with comptia.

    Basically the A+ is very very easy, it just multiple choice questions. Its very easy to study for. Here are some links to the book i studied and some previous exams.

    Book:
    http://www.amazon.com/CompTIA-+-Com...bs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1210453846&sr=1-2

    Practice Exams:

    I've taken some practice exams, they are pretty easy, but they throw some random windows stuff in there that confuses me, like which command is to partition a hard drive or some crap like that. How was the Network+? Harder I take it? Recommend any good books or training programs?

    All i can say is study the book, its all in there, specifically the one i recommended on amazon. They same goes for the network+ it a book by the same author, there both very good and cover everything. Theres no quick way to do it, just read the books.

    Good luck.
