A+ Certification Practice Test?

I was wondering if anyone knew a good site for this year's A+ Certification Test. I wanna take it next week since my school has 3 voulchers waiting for me so i wanna take it before it goes on 2 week vacation for winter and also because the test is changing in january. Or should i wait till january because of the new cover on windows 7?

Take it this month because another big change starting in January is that to maintain this certification, you'll need to take a test every 3 years (more $$$) as opposed to it right now being a lifetime cert.

But what is on the test thats in january? I believed its full coverage on Windows 7 and some of Vista and XP. Also do you know any good sites for practice tests?

If you do a Google search for practice tests you can find some such as this site:

CompTIA A+ Practice Test: Free A+ Practice Exams

Also, as Darician said, do everything you can to take the test this month. Starting the 1st of the year, you'll have to re certify every 3 years.

The last A+ test I took was in 2008 and it covered mostly XP and had several questions on some of the older systems. It basically covers a wide spectrum, everything from Printer errors, general installation and configuring of parts, to customer service care (how to respond to someone in a polite courteous way). Just having well rounded in knowledge in computer troubleshooting will help you out a lot.

I just want to take a test where vista and 7 is highly covered because i been around it since the release of both OS's so i would know much about them...well more than XP. Has anyone took this year's test yet?
