Tips and tricks for the CompTIA A+ Exam

“Brain Dumps” Are Not the Answer

A “brain dump” is after taking an exam when someone posts test questions, often with the answers. While this can seem such an easy option for getting up-to-date information about the test so be careful. You have no idea if you’re getting the correct answers (or questions) besides being unethical. There’s no verification. You may be memorizing wrong answers or getting tricked entirely.

Memorize the Test Objectives

Let’s start at the start. Each test comes with an explanation of the test target. While this might seem like a no-brainer, studying the goal means you’re more prepared to take and pass your test generally. It is useful for you to organize and structure the information you’re studying.

Lets you know how fast or slowly you’re moving through the test is the other advantage of having this roadmap. Understanding where you are in the test and how much you have left is necessary for managing your time. You can change how much time you’re spending on each question to ensure you complete the test. You might be rushing instead due to nerves and need a reminder to take your time.

Set up a Computer or a Network

It might sound daunting but building an actual computer is a great way to prepare. It will be essential in understanding not just the theory but how to apply it to you. There’s no better way to learn networks than to set one up yourself.

Take Practice Tests

CompTIA provides practice questions for almost every exam, including A+, Network+, Security+, and more. It also gives you an idea of how ready you are overall, you can hyper-focus on the areas you’re having problems with. Passing CompTIA is an excellent resource for finding practice tests.

Figure out what you keep getting wrong and then redouble your study efforts in those areas when you’re reviewing your answers. Try out the ABC method for improving your scores before moving on to the actual test.

Skip Strange Exam Questions

This test is about managing time and grading on a pass-fail basis. Therefore if a question is too hard, let's move on. It will give you more time to answer the questions you do understand. You can see it in an entirely new light or have worked out the answer in the back of your mind by the time you return to the question.

Ace the Performance-Based Questions

Performance-based questions (PBQs) ask the taker to perform a task or solve a problem in a simulation. These questions are more difficult and can take time. However, if you’re prepared, they don’t have to derail your test-taking session.

First, it’s necessary to understand that most PBQs will come toward the origin of the test and when they are difficult, they aren’t impossible. Preparing for these questions with online labs can give you the confidence and skills you need to tackle them. However, if you reach the problem and don’t feel confident, it’s okay to skip it for the moment and come back to it.

Treat Yourself Well the Day of Your CompTIA Exam

Last but certainly not least, you’ll want to show up well-rested, fed, hydrated, caffeinated, and de-stressed (at least, as stress-free as possible). While last-minute cramming can be important, you have to leave yourself enough time to get a good sleep. Eat well and try not to stress.

Moreover, making sure that you know the testing location is vital (which is why ACI Learning offers a Pearson VUE testing center for you to take the exam on-site). If you are traveling to a new location, make sure you leave yourself plenty of time in case you get lost. Finally, build up your confidence to prepare for the test. Give yourself a pep talk. You’ve done the hard work. You can do it!

CompTIA A+ FAQs

It's not hard to pass the exams compared to vendor certificates, for example, CCNA. CompTIA A+ should be easy for anyone with good experience dealing with computers. Although CompTIA is a non-vendor certificate many companies value it. CompTIA certificates are a great way to open doors for you. However, it’s difficult to say how hard the exams are because every test-taker has a different level of IT experience, knowledge, and skills. Further, individuals may have different methods of approaching exams and a different level of anxiety about test-taking.

The vital thing to remember while you are wondering about how hard the CompTIA A+ certification exams will be is that the more prepared you are, the better you will do. Part of that preparation is to hope for what to expect on the exams.
