A+ Exam Cram 2 is a study skill enhancement and tutorial, designed to focus on exactly what students need to get A+ certified, with coverage of exams 220-221 and 220-222. It details all the new exam objectives and items in the following areas: Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows NT version 4.0. Because the A+ certification is a core competency of the MCSA program, this book is also helpful for those who are seeking their MCSA certification. This book is not intended to teach new material. Instead it assumes that you have a solid foundation of knowledge but can use a refresher on important concepts as well as a guide to exam topics and objectives. This book focuses exactly on what you need to pass the exam - it features test-taking strategies, time-saving study tips, and a special Cram Sheet that includes tips, acronyms, and memory joggers not available anywhere else. The series is supported online at several Web sites: examcram.com, informit.com, and cramsession.com.

The accompanying CD features PrepLogic™ Practice Tests, Preview Edition. This product includes one complete PrepLogic Practice Test with approximately the same number of questions found on the actual vendor exam. Each question contains full, detailed explanations of the correct and incorrect answers. The engine offers two study modes, Practice Test and Flash Review, full exam customization, and a detailed score report.
