A tad easy but pretty good. If you dont do well on this test you need to hit those books!
I think this quiz is pretty good! Although maybe a few more questions would be good also.
Very nice quiz with the difficulty on par with the A+ Exam. Some more questions along with explanations at the end (eg: APIPA for question 2) would be great.
