Is studying the A+ cram sheet really going to help you when you take the test?Would it also help you remember when you get a job in that field?

You bet! -- Be careful though, only use the cram sheet to review what you already read about in a book, do not use it as your primary study book.

I have personally found most of the things stick with you for a long time. I am currently studying for Linux+, and I've seeing questions that relate to A+. The things I learned while studying for A+ definitely help me answer those questions.

I'm wondering the same thing too, because a lot of the questions I heard were "scenarios".

Like you turn on a computer and the floppy drive light is on yet there's no disk in it... what's wrong?

I think it'll be hard to prepare for these kind of questions with just a cram sheet.

Yes, I have found the cram sheets helpful after using the Mike Meyer's A+ book as my main study guide.

The Mike Meyer's book is one I was told to use, but of course I'm hoping I can find it used online. Anyone have any luck finding an old copy somewhere?

Any and all tools and guides that you have available to you should be utilized providing they are up to date as possible. I'm personally using flashcards, guides, study questions, taking a instructor lead course, and anything else I can get my hands on. So the answer is yes, it's worth it.

technology is changing, so your going to have to learn new things about PC's/ motherboards/ RAM etc even after you pass the A+ exam.
