A Plus It Technician Quizzes & Trivia

3/16/09. This is a test that covers the second exam, IT Technician. This test is comparable to what you will see on the exam. I used Sybex A+ Study Guides to pass A+ and Network+ so I am a Sybex fan. This covers chapters 12-17 which is the IT portion. They are in the order of the chapters if you would like to follow along. All answers have been researched in the Sybex book for accuracy. I wish for you to leave me feedback whether you liked the test or not and why. I respond to all feedbacks. Good Luck you are on a journey that will leave you well prepared for the world of the PC. . . I have chapters 12 and 13 so far. Check back for updated as I update when I can. . Thanks and enjoy.
