 Basic A+ Certification Prep requirements: For taking this instructor led ExpertRating Online CompTIA A+ Certification Prep Course (Basic) you need A solid conceptual and practical knowledge of Windows 2000 or XP and preferably some experience with Windows 98 or ME; Internet access with e-mail and a current version of a Web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. It's also recommended that you have a PC that you can take apart and put back together again. This can be anything from an ancient Intel 286 to a newer 486 or beyond. Because of the dangers of electro-static discharge (to the machine, not the student), we do not require you to tear apart your own primary computer.

 Testimonials: The ExpertRating Online CompTIA A+ Certification Prep Course (Basic) has received overwhelming positive feedback and reviews from students around the world. Here are a few:
"Although I didn't have/take the time to enter into the discussions, it was helpful and amusing to "listen" to the others. This class was just what I needed with my busy schedule. It allowed me the freedom to set my own time and not have to bother with getting to class. I felt like it was structured yet flexible. Although I was out with a cold for a week, I still had enough time to catch up and take the final exam. I believe that the instructor is very well versed in his field."
"Excellent course. I have been working with PCs and "pre-PCs" since 1980. I was not sure how useful this course would be to me. I was pleasantly surprised - I feel I have enhanced my knowledge and look forward to more advanced A+ courses. However the quizzes could be longer and somewhat more difficult. Great Job Scott!"
"From a complete beginner standpoint--an excellent way to step into the subject--material presented is clear and reinforced. Discussion areas were entertaining and informative, especially the reports covering the lab computer assignments. Learned some basics(will never forget) and know exactly which lessons need further review/study! Enjoyed the course!"
"great class it was very easy to understand because of the way the lessons were laid out."
"Great class. My first time doing an on-line class. I certainly will no longer hesitate to take another. Thank you very much for a good first time experience."
"I did not take this course in order to become a computer technician. I an looking to switch careers from annotator of economics books to tech writer. I am forty years old and, before the class, knew less than my kids about computers. Your writing style calmed my fears about wandering into the forest of technobabble. Whenever my brain froze up in fear, the next section contained a little cartoon picture of components talking out loud. This gave me courage to proceed. To this aspiring tech writer--you are a role model!"

"I enjoyed Scott's presentation in-lesson and on the message boards. He seems genuinely interested in helping us learn and grow in knowledge. Though I was annoyed by some typos/lack of clarity, I look forward to the next course."

"I have been tweaking computers on my own for the past eight years;learning as I go. The knowledge I gained through this class was invaluable. The lesson assignments were right on target. The information was clear and precise. I am anticipating the Intermediate course with fervent optimism."

"I have never had so much fun taking a class as I have with this one. I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out and I feel I've learned more from this than I ever could've on my own.Thanks for everything and see you in the Intermediate course"
