Hi,
This is my first post here. I'm trying to break into the IT field.
I took some courses to prepare for the A+ exam and I thought the books were pretty comprehensive. Then, I start looking at practice tests on sites like this one and I'm finding questions on material not covered in my textbooks. I'm starting to feel cheated. Was it unreasonable to expect all the material I needed for the exam to be in my textbooks?
I will probably be a very frequent poster.

I still see A+ listed on many requirements for jobs.  Seems valid to me.

After 30 years of pc building and repair i figured the A+ would be a breeze, but after looking at it closer, there is a good bit of stuff that i had forgotten over the years.  Getting the A+ will be a great refresher.

How long will your certs stay active? i know you can no longer get a grandfathered cert as of a few years ago. really wish i would have done this back then.

There are still alot of people that use computers every day but have never had any interest in the hardware. A+ shows you at least can help train these people how not to screw up a computer.

This is brand new and am taking the A plus course for my job.  This is learning a new language...it is really hard.  I don't have any computer skills and I am not good at testing...I tried couple of sample tests and got 2 right out of 20.  Signed up so I can get some free online courses...in order to take advantage of the free courses, I had to sign up and post at least twice...is there A Plus for dummies?

I'm currently working on getting my CCNA.  I know that will not be enough, as many, many employers want A+, as well.  The way I see it, with all the competition in the IT field, the more certs you have, the better your chances.  I'm also planning on Linux+, Security+, and a few Microsoft certs.  This site looks like a great place to get good information for everything I need.
