Like many who are self-taught at PC repair and the like, I came across this part of the Cert exam I did not know of here:

http://certification.comptia.org/news/2 ... stion.aspx

and wonder, would I need to find a mentor to get more than the experience I have? Is there some material available that let's you practice, like you study, the Performance Based Questions? I've read some of the comments and building and practicing on your own comp is a good idea, but I'm wondering would it be enough, especially if you don't know what kinds of problems you may come across on the test that you may not have studied on your own without the basic framework of where to guide your learning.

Thanks.

My latest A+ Cert Guide - Third Edition* includes coverage of the new performance-based questions. Using a good guide plus experience in working with systems is the best way to gain the knowledge and experience to pass the tests. Scott.

*I have only a few copies of this book left in my own inventory that I can offer to forum members for $25 including free shipping (USA only). Send me a PM if you are interested...

I have always disliked these type of exam questions, especially when they are based on Microsoft Certifications, because in the simulated environment, you *must* perform the task step by step! exactly the Microsoft way, no matter if that is the best way, the easiest way, the way "everybody else" does it, or whatever!

Doing it ANY other way will be a FAIL on that question!

I'm quite certain CompTIA is the same.
