The only thing I can tell you to really study up on are the IRQ's and COMs and all that, and the the steps of the laser printer cycle, those were what really threw me off on the exam the first time I took it.
Congrats on the pass, i passed mine last year. So whats ya plans now, are ya gonna do any MScerts etc?
The new A+ is still 2 exams to pass. You have an essentials exam and then you have to pick another one out of 3. They are IT technician, remote support technician and depot technician.
I never got asked anything about IRQs and COMs in my exam, i think you personally need to study every area because the questions are never the same.
