Thank's, laceupboots.

I'm taking A+ OS Technologies this coming week. It only covers Windows and I had to give myself a little crash course in XPee first. MS likes to change the names of things for no apparent reason, like the ERD (emergency repair disk) in NT/2000 is now the ASR (automatic system recovery) disk in XP. The Network+ test requires some *nix knowledge however. That's slated for the middle of this month. Hope to get Linux+ out of the way soon too, but that depends on how well the others go.

I noticed that some people mentioned Transcenders as practice exams. I'm quite taken by their product, and use many of them to assess my readiness for the real thing. But does Transcender make a practice exam product for Linux+, or ANY of their products, for that matter?

I'm getting ready to take my MCSE 2003 exams, and I have the Transcender for the first of the series, but it's Windows based. I have Windows on my wife's computer, so I could always use hers for the practice exams. But if there's a Linux version of their software, I'd sure like to know about it.

Anyone know if the Transcender stuff works with Wine?

I'm too cheap to buy their actual product but they have an exam simulation for Linux+ on their website. Just click the "try demo" link next to the "add to cart" button on this page: http://www.transcender.com/transcram...ExamID=XK0-001

I took and passed the Linux+ test this week. It was not that bad. I was suprised by the amount of A+ type questions. What IRQ is a PS2 mouse port on, man I could not remember that one. Anyhow it was not too bad. Everything is based on command, no gui. If you have decent hardware skills and have used Linux for more than a year you should be ok.

Does A+ OS Tech still cover DOS? Does that tell you how long ago it was that I took the two A+ exams. In fact if I recall the two tests were just named Hardware and Software none of this OS Technologies.
Do you still have to learn all the IRQs and DMAs? Nothing like configuring hardware back in windows 95.

I remember seeing one DOS question, but it was a general question that could apply to the CLI on any version of Windows... nothing about UMBs or loadhigh, etc. The 2003 tests are no longer adaptive, however. The consensus is they're much harder to pass now. You still have to know your IRQs, DMAs and I/O addresses though.
