CompTIA A+ 220-801 and 220-802 Simulator helps you reinforce A+ exam topics and develop and enhance the hands-on skills you will need to succeed on the exams and on the job. This state-of-the-art interactive simulation software presents you with 260 challenging labs that help you learn by doing, which is the most effective method of learning.

 

Experience the world of the computer technician through hands-on labs based on the experiences of real-world technicians. Labs require you to install and troubleshoot recent advances in hardware technologies and configure, test, and troubleshoot the intricacies of the operating system, networking, security, laptops, and other mobile devices.

 

The operating system labs require you to configure both the Windows 7 and Windows XP operating systems using situations that you are likely to encounter as an A+ certified technician. Just a few examples include creating and configuring user accounts, resetting power options, reconfiguring the contents of the Start menu, creating additional clocks for use in multiple time zones, converting basic disks to dynamic disks, remotely administering a computer, configuring offline files, providing assistance for handicapped users, and setting up parental controls on your home computer.

 

Security labs enable you to create a password policy and an account lockout policy to prevent unauthorized tampering on your network, to assign user permissions, to encrypt files and folders, and to configure the Windows Firewall.

 

Troubleshooting labs require you to start and stop services on your computer, use the Event Viewer logs to troubleshoot problems and track a hack attack, create a restore point and use it to restore a damaged system, create a system image and a system repair disk, and schedule automatic backups.

 

In the networking labs, you use private IP addresses and subnet masks, assign DHCP addresses, map a network drive, manage a homegroup, set up an ad hoc wireless network, and configure and manage add-ons and pop-up blockers using Internet Explorer.

 

Then go beyond the operating system with labs that give you experience configuring your CMOS settings, upgrading components on both a PC and a laptop, and identifying and installing a wide variety of external devices.

 

And much, much more. A total of 260 labs cover all the A+ topics and are presented as situations that you might actually experience as an A+ certified technician.

 

In addition to the wealth of hands-on exercises, this software comes complete with more than 10 hours of video training by expert instructor Beth Smith. These Live Lessons cover firmware, hardware, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, printers, laptops, networking, security, and operational procedures in more than 160 focused and concise videos so you can find specific topics and master them quickly.
