[<< wikibooks] A+ Certification
This wikibook discusses the information necessary to obtain the CompTIA A+ certification.  The A+ certification is an internationally recognized validation of the technical knowledge required of foundation-level IT practitioners.  The CompTIA Network+ and A+ exams can be applied together toward the Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) program.
The A+ certification ensures that the successful candidate has the important knowledge and skills necessary to manage, maintain, troubleshoot, install, operate and configure office computing equipment, describe computing technologies, basic principles, adhere to professional standards, and use testing tools.  Although not a prerequisite, it is recommended that CompTIA A+ candidates have at least twelve months of experience in PC repair or adequate academic training.
