CompTIA's A+ is the most popular of all IT certifications. The quiz below, from McGraw Hill's certification guide, will help you prepare for the exam.

Nearly every profession has some criteria that you must meet to show your competence and ability to perform at a certain level, verified by some type of exam. Modern PC techs attain the CompTIA A+ certification, the essential credential that shows competence in the modern field of information technology.

CompTIA A+ is an industry-wide, vendor-neutral certification program developed and sponsored by the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA). You achieve this certification by taking two computer-based exams consisting of multiple-choice and performance-based questions. The tests cover what technicians should know after 12 months of hands-on work on personal computing devices, either from a job or as a student in the lab. CompTIA A+ certification enjoys wide recognition throughout the computer industry. To date, more than 1,000,000 technicians have become CompTIA A+ certified, making it the most popular of all IT certifications. Many companies require CompTIA A+ certification for all of their PC support technicians, and the CompTIA A+ certification is widely rec­ognized both in the United States and internationally..

more about this book.

CompTIA splits A+ certification into two exams: CompTIA A+ 220-1001 and CompTIA A+ 220-1002. It's common to refer to these two exams as the "2019" exams, but CompTIA is also now referring to them as Core 1 and Core 2. The 220-1001 exam concentrates on understanding terminology and technology, how to do fundamental tasks such as upgrading RAM, and basic network and mobile device support. The 220-1002 exam builds on the first exam, concentrating on operating system support, advanced configuration and troubleshooting scenarios.

The book CompTIA A+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide, Tenth Edition, written by Mike Myers and published by McGraw-Hill Education, provides a guide to the topics covered by both A+ certification exams, along with possible exam questions to test your knowledge. The 25 questions below provide just a sampling to help you gauge your readiness and identify areas of study.
