    You don't have to memorize them for the Test.
    But it would be Extremly Benefitial if you will remember them for the Job.
    P.s. as much as the A+ Core is an Easy test don't underestimate it's Volume.

    I've passed both tests after reading a Study guide, CNEQuizer tests.

    If you know even Half of that book you'll ace the A+ exam. the test is truly very easy if you know what your talking about. that book your reading is way more detailed than the test. Honestly.
    I hope that someday we will be able to put away our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.

    I just passed the Core part. That was pretty easy. The OS part is a bit more trying but managable if you have a grasp. Just do practice tests... the best ones offer detailed explainations... the more detailed the better. The key is to concentrate on your weak areas. You'll ace it thata way.

    Good luck <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

    The CNE quizzer was the best quizzer for a+. I aced my a+ and I thought I had failed, but if you stick with the key points yo'll do fine. I don't know if it has changed that much sinceI took it 2 years ago, but there were a few printer q's on it, you might want to brush up on that

    As others have said, do every practice exam you can get your hands on. You will find if you do a half a dozen different practice exams that over 2/3 of the questions you encounter on the real A+ were on at least one of the practice examns.

    I too took the A+ test and there are some parts that are kind of difficult. What helped me a bit was "A+ for Dummies" <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> Everything was in just plain english.
