A Plus Essential Quizzes & Trivia

Test your knowledge of the bus speed of different devices and cable systems. This test will cover the knowledge for all of the exams for CompTIA A+. It can also be used as a learning tool because the more you take it, the more you will be able to memorize, rather than sitting there looking at a piece of paper. I hope this helps everyone with their preparation for their exams.
