* Comptia.org not only features a few short practice exams, but will allow you to search for CompTIA approved study material. This allows you access to up-to-date and more official information. Lots of time can be wasted studying for Windows 95 based exams.

* Even if you decide not to start your own home business, an A+ certification can be used elsewhere. This is just like any test. If you take your time and study, you can pass. Even with not much experience. Good Luck!
