Theres not much networking in the A+. Its just basic stuff like IP addys and subnet masks etc, nothing to technical. If your wanting networking, then you need to do the network+ instead.

Its not a networking course at all really. Its hardware and OSes. The 2003 objectives i done go through all hardware from 386 processors to modern day ones etc, and OSes from win 3.1 onwards. The new 2006 objectives start from windows 2000 onwards, and they have a lot of customer service stuff in there aswell. Oh and its not that easy lol.
