As a mother, wife, full time worker and student, these courses seem to be custom tailored for my neeeds. Outstanding!
I now have taken all of the online courses for the A+. I am going to study a little further and hopefully get that certification soon! These three courses had a lot of good information. It got in depth with a lot of topics, which I found great. Good course overall!
I've taken all three A+ Certification courses and have enjoyed them all. This course was exactly what I needed, because I live and work in two different states and am unable to attend a classroom based course, due to my work schedule. I feel confident in my ability to pass the A+ exams with just a little more studying and review. And because of this I'll be back for the Network+ certification course.
Scott is an excellent instructor! I have learned much in his 3 A+ classes and feel confident that I will easily pass the A+ exams.
Scott was an attentive and knowledgeable instructor with a writing style surpassing all other A+ Certification Preparation authors. The course was of great value to me. Thank you Scott!
Thanks for the opportunity to participate in this on line class. It was very informative and I feel that I will be successful in passing my A+ test because of the knowledge I gained in this class. Thanks again!
Thank you for this course! It was very flexible with my hours, and gave me enough time to complete my class work. I would recommend this to any one who doesn't have time for on campus training or a limited budget!
Very good class. I have learned a great deal and have been able to apply my skills appropriately due to your course. Thank you very much.
Very good course. By far the most challenging of the three.

Successful completion of the Basic CompTIA A+ Certification Prep and Intermediate CompTIA A+ Certification Prep courses. A Windows PC that you can experiment on. You will probably want to remove/install various devices, such as video, sound, and modems. Because of the dangers of electro-static discharge (to the machine, not the student), however, we do not require you to tear apart your own primary computer. This is a class that trains you to be a technician - having a machine to play with greatly helps your learning. You can pick up an old PC from second-hand stores, garage sales, or your Aunt Edna's attic.
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
