Today I passed the first of two tests towards gaining the CompTIA A+ certification for computer technicians!

I scored 803 out of a possible max of 900. Only 515 was needed to pass the test. Maybe I over-studied?

Today’s test was for the Core Hardware test. The other one is the incorrectly-named “Core Operating System Technologies” test, which will cover a wide range of Microsoft operating systems, from DOS all the way to Windows XP, and completely ignoring the fact that companies like Red Hat and Apple are also members of CompTIA and support the many certifications offered by them. Meh. Whatever.

In any case, the OS test will likely be harder for me because of my dislike of Windows. Wish me luck!
