In order to receive required licenses or certifications, and thus be able to practice in a certain industry, most professionals need to pass specific exams.
For individuals considering work in the information technology industry, these exams are administered by the Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTIA). One such certification given by the CompTIA is the so-called A+ exam for aspiring computer technicians.
If you are planning to take the exam soon, you will first have to take A+ Practice tests, in addition to enrolling in review classes. CertBlaster cites three reasons you should enroll in a review class.
1. You will get familiar with how the A+ exam works
You can always take the exam with nothing but your enthusiasm and self-acquired knowledge, but who would want to risk it when there are review classes out there that could prepare you to pass it?
These review classes know the workings of these tests, from their duration (90 minutes for a maximum of 90 questions) to the type of questions you must anticipate (performance-based and multiple choice), thus giving you an advantage.
2. You will get the best A+ resources
The A+ certification test covers four main domains. These include hardware (34%), networking (21%), mobile devices (17%), and hardware and network troubleshooting (28%). Enrolling in a review class will allow you to focus exactly within these scopes and limitations.
3. These review classes will allow you to network
Participating in review classes will introduce you to new colleagues. From your review mentors to your classmates, you will have the chance to meet people who could help you in your career.
There are many A+ certification resources out there you could purchase online and read at home, but if you want a legitimate review experience in a professional setting, attending review classes is still your best bet.
