 FALL 2020 INFORMATION

Class Information

  • Discounted Vouchers for certification test are available
  • The A+ certification still consists of two tests.  Material for both tests are covered in the CIT 114 class. You will need at least two vouchers for this certification.
  • The required "textbook" for all classes is an access key for LabSim.  You can purchase this key from the bookstore, or directly from LabSim (Information is on the Text Books page). 
  • Many classes have a recommended book for additional information. That book is not required.
  • Note - CIT 114 has a lab component that must be completed.  The Build is done using a simulation program. The PC build is Pass/Fail.  You must pass the lab to receive a grade above a C. Download the software and install it. Once installed, contact me for a software key.  Failure to complete or pass the lab will result in a C or lower grade.

Test Taking Tips

Slow down and carefully read the question. If you don’t understand it, reread it.

Certification exams are written with the assistance of dozens of Subject Matter Experts. Do not expect to find clues in a consistent writing style for every question.

The “BEST” choice is always the right choice.

Give the question a shot before giving up and moving on. If you’re still unsure, return to it for a fresh look later.

Do not read more into the question than what is stated.
