    So im planning on going out for my A+ exam but I keep second guessing my knowledge, because of such I was looking for some site that have practice exams. I've tried the ones on the COMPTIA site and passed those but I'm still worried. So any sites to practice would be great and an app would be even better!

    If you feel comfortable with your self you'll do fine. The test isn't that bad really. I missed it by 1 question because I couldn't really focus due to stomach issues on the second test. I passed the first test. Most of the thing I studied where not on the test, but it still wasn't that bad.

    What helped me pass was a local Cisco sponsered class I took that had the same basics as the test. I highly recommend this book, without this I don't think I would have passed. I read it chapter by chapter and then took the test and passed with flying colors.

    Amazon.com: Mike Meyers' CompTIA A+ Certification Passport, Fourth Edition (Exams 220-701 & 220-702) (9780071702980): Michael Meyers: Books

    As a caution, I was certified last year and I know alot has changed with CompTIA since then. If I am not mistaken, you are going to have to re take the test I think it is every 2 years to stay certified. I am certified for life :D

    Yeah it's a joke how it is now. I still think the A+ test is a waste of time and money.

    A+ was super easy for me, but I also found that it's been a pretty useless certification to have... If you're looking for your first IT job it might be good to have, but once you have on the job experience, that completely trumps an A+. That was my experience anyway...
