Do you guys mean this one?

So just 2 practice tests overall?

Jason Dion's course has quite a few simulations, I believe it is on sale for the next few days.

Also, as a rule of thumb, anything in the objectives that starts with 'Given a scenario', is more likely to be a PBQ than the other objectives.

Just passed A+1002 with a 782.


Had 3 PBQs and 80 questions.

Flawless process to start the PEARSONVUE exam from home (make sure you close malware bytes)

Used Professor Messer Videos.

Bought Udemy Practice exams. for like $12 (you will see the same type of questions)

Also used Exam Compass for knowledge.


Stoked, after getting a 655 on 1001. I will start studying 1001 again.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I don't know where you looked, but it is priced at 12.99 and 10.99 respectively right now. Was looking for 1002 practice tests myself.

Of course! My study materials were:

That was really all I used. For testing myself, I just googled A+ 1001 and 1002 exams and took whatever came up. Some of the free exam questions were better than others. This was just extra practice.

For Jason's uDemy courses, use a different email to buy each course and the price will be around $12. Professor Messer's Notes are $20 each but a huge time saver and convenient. If you go that route, get the Digital instead of the paper version. You can always print out his Digital notes, much easier that way. I did watch all of Messer's videos before buying his Notes but that's not mandatory.

I gave myself a deadline to take the exam within a month and had study deadlines each day, like study up to 10 of Messer's notes per day or watch all of Jason Dion's PBQ videos. Good luck to you, my friend!

I made an account just to comment on this thread (I saw your other one as well where you received horrendous advice from another user).


I would retake the Core 1001 exam and move on through certification, a degree is nice but additional credentials will only strengthen your resume. I can tell you that my degree in Computer Science was almost useless when entering the field, as universities tend to teach theory over practicality.


Giving up is silly, especially if you plan on going into the industry. Many employers require certifications, and if you're choosing to give up over one bad exam, then maybe this industry isn't for you. Study up, use your other voucher, and view that poor result as a learning experience.


Best of luck!



Resources I utilized for the A+ exam:

Professor Messer's video course and his course notes:


Jason Dion's Practice Tests (wait for a sale, it can drop down to $10):


ExamCompass Practice Tests (these are free and can be taken by test module):

Honestly, Professor Messer is a great resource but he didnt work too well for me either. I found that he seemed kind of dry to me. So I would highly recommend Mike Meyers course on Udemy. He keeps it a bit more entertaining and he kept me a little more engaged. His courses go on sale very frequently for about $15 each.


Also Jason Dion creates good practice tests that you can buy for about $15 as well. He does a great job at simulating the questions to as close to the test as possible. He also walks you through some of the Performance Based Questions (PBQs) as well!


Combined they were a great resource for me. But everyone is different, so please dont expect miracle results. You'll need to put the time in no matter what study material you choose. Best of luck to you and good luck on your future exam!

u/douglasde0519, yeah the open-ended questions are tough. I would read:

CompTIA A+ Complete Deluxe Study Guide: Exam Core 1 220-1001 and Exam Core 2 220-1002

CompTIA A+ Core 1 (220-1001) and Core 2 (220-1002) Exam Cram

I also watched all of the Jason Dion videos: (Make sure to search google for a code and don't pay full price!) I watched ALL the Professor Messor videos as well. These are free.

Also, DON'T MEMORIZE THE PRACTICE TEST QUESTIONS! I found that there were very few of the practice test questions on the actual CompTIA tests.

For the lab simulations, PBQs, check out: CompTIA Labs for A+ Core 2 (Exam 220-1002) This is the link for the academic store if you are a student.

And make sure to leave the PBQ questions for the very END of the test as these take the most time to answer.

Feel free to ping me on here if you have any questions!

Check out:

I recommend CompTIA A+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide , Tenth Edition (Exams 220-1001 & 220-1002) by Mike Meyers. It was the only book I used, but with that resource you can use multiple books. The more the better to bolstering your knowledge and being prepared for the exams.

In addition:

I recomend this free video lecture series by Professor Messer

Professor Messer’s CompTIA 220-1001 and

  • 220-1002 A+ Training Course

  • Professor Messer’s Pop Quiz Online

I recommend these courses by Udemy when they are on sale for about $12 each.

Mike Meyers (the most comprehensive source of CompTIA material)

  • TOTAL: CompTIA A+ Certification (220-1001).

  • TOTAL: CompTIA A+ Certification (220-1001) Practice Tests.

  • TOTAL: CompTIA A+ Certification (220-1002).

  • TOTAL: CompTIA A+ Certification (220-1002) Practice Tests.

Jason Dion (his exams will be the closest in style and difficulty of actual CompTIA exams)

  • CompTIA A+ (220-1001) Test Prep, Exams and Simulations

  • CompTIA A+ (220-1002) Test Prep, Exams and Simulations

I also recommend ExamCram for their free exams to test your basic knowledge.

There are plenty of recommendations when looking for study material, and the one that is going to be reccomended the most is going to be Professor Messer.

A+ 220-1001 Training Playlist:

A+ 220-1002 Training Playlist:

Quizlet A+ Cards:

There are also practice exams by Jason Dion that cost money and other types of videos with practice tests in between each video by Mike Meyers, but that one does cost around $10-$15 on Udemy. (It says its like $60 a video, but they go on sale ALL the time)

Hope this helps!
