CompTIA A+ Certification is widely recognized as the first certification you should receive in an information technology (IT) career. Whether you are planning to specialize in PC hardware, Windows operating system management, or network management, the CompTIA A+ Certification exams measure the baseline skills you need to master in order to begin your journey toward greater responsibilities and achievements in information technology.

CompTIA A+ Certification is designed to be a "vendor-neutral" exam that measures your knowledge of industry-standard technology.

The number one goal of this Q and A tutorial is a simple one: to help you pass the 2009 version of the CompTIA A+ Certification Essentials Exam (number 220-701) and the Practical Application Exam (number 220-702), and thereby earn your CompTIA A+ Certification.

One thing that I should stress to all the readers is to keep in mind; CompTIA A+ Certification exams now stress problem-solving abilities and reasoning more than memorization of terms and facts, our goal is to help you master and understand the required objectives for each exam.

Adrian's Comment
Better yet, lose the lame Task Manager and pickup System Internals Process Explorer. Then under ointops check replace task manager .Then when you use the ctrl-shift-esc shortcut Process Explorer opens.I just detest task manager. It might have been nice on Windows 95 but you think they could have made some improvements since then. System Internals is now owned by Microsoft.

I feel your pain Adrian. Not sure why they don't make things better over such long periods of time. They could have, but why they don't is beyond me.

Cinty's Comment
Thank you, I've recently been scierhang for information about this subject for a long time and yours is the best I have came upon till now. But, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you positive concerning the source?|What i don't realize is actually how you are now not really a lot more smartly-favored than you may be right now. You are so intelligent.

Sure, thanks for letting us know Craig. I think you're refering to this question:

  1. Which of the following are the most commonly used Windows operating systems? (Choose the three best answers.)
    1. Windows XP
    2. Windows 2000
    3. Windows Vista
    4. Windows 98

Just fixed it. Thanks!

I don't know the technical reasons behind it...however, I've experienced this happening to me on numerous installations. And so far the only way I beat it was to simply format the drive and start installation over.

Thanks for putting these up, but these questions have really turned me off the A+ exam. They're far too trivial ("What is the most popular Windows operating system?" WTF WHO CARES) and some of the answers supplied are incorrect (anyone who thinks that a video card is an essential device either hasn't heard of a serial port or SHOULD BE SHOT). Read the manual before you open the case? Honestly, what percentage of computer illiterate customers would supply you with A FUCKING MANUAL to fix their computer. 10% AT MOST. Bypassing the CPU = TASK MANAGER?! Anyone who doesn't say DMA doesn't deserve a job ANYWHERE EVER. These questions sound like they were written by someone who is twelve. A+ is not about certification, it's about MAKING MONEY. Srsly, Comptia. Get real. NB: Sorry for ALL THE SHOUTING

pico's Comment
Correction! Sorry, I should have said very few I find common in the Test exam. I also find many of your Q are very easy and obviously known... Are questions in A+ easy or complex in terms of meaning? Thanks
29 Wed Dec 2010
Admin's Reply:

They are total randomized. But I've heard that they become progressively harder as you answer correctly.

pico's Comment
I have read and gone through all Q&A you provided. But when I try some practice exam or test I don't see very very few are common. Will your Q&A be enough to pass? Please Advise Thanks

Nilanthi's Comment
Dear Sir, A question says (Choose two answers). The bottom of the answer list says (Please select all that apply). Suppose there are three correct answers in the answer list, If I choose two answers, what will be the result. Thanking you.
07 Tue Dec 2010
Admin's Reply:

Then you're screwed :)

J/K...I think you should try to stick to two answers in that case but it shouldn't happen in the real test so don't worry so much.

Re #6 in PC Parts This may sound silly but shouldn't the first thing you do when replacing a card is go out and buy the card?
18 Tue May 2010
Admin's Reply:

Not at all David. You don't have to buy a card at all. You could as an example use the loaner I gave you. J/K. Thanks for light humor.

Admin's Reply:

I don't make 'em up. We get these from a bunch of folks just like yourselves. But I'm sure if we dig deeper, we'll find the basis for that answer.

lou's Comment
hi there i have been doing these questions...and i find some of the answers to be odd...for example question 7 in networking...the answer is UTP...but i am pretty sure STP would work as
24 Sat Apr 2010
Admin's Reply:

You're right. Both would do the job. But you have not only give the correct answer but pick the best answer. That's exactly the type of mind-boggling that's going to go on during the exam.

lou's Comment
thank you so much for the response...i am gonna study carefully on these questions...i also brought a text book to study...hopefully it will be enough..

lou's Comment
hi sorry..its me again.... i just wanna make sure...are these questions...the actual exam questions? thank you
23 Fri Apr 2010
Admin's Reply:

Short Answer: YES

Detailes: Although, these questions come from the actual A+ Exam of 2009, it is very important to mention that CompTIA isn't going to simply ask these exact same questions from each person taking the test. They literally have over 2000 questions from which they randomly asign a few to each exam instance. So again, yes, these are some of the REAL A+ Exam Questions. But don't assume that you're going to be asked these exact questions in the exact same way.

But what's more likely going to happen is that if you study these questions and understand the correct response and reason behind that response. You'll do amazingly well to the slightly different but similar questions that you'll come across in the test.
