    Question Taking 902 soon! Differences from the 901?

    Hello,
    I recently took the 901 A+ and passed. Before I took that exam I queried some of you for some advice on what to expect. Since I have now passed that exam I'll soon take the 902. I was wondering, are there are any differences between the 902 and 901 that I should be prepared for, or is it fundamentally the same test as the 901 just with different material?

    There will be some overlap. You'll find that the 902 is more in-depth about troubleshooting the OS. Don't assume that "OS" means Windows. There will be a few mobile questions, Mac and Linux. You'll need to know how to recover from various boot issues, configure storage (know your RAID levels) and how to install drivers, install the OS, upgrade the OS, troubleshoot networking (be very familiar with TCP/IP and tools like ping, ipconfig's switches, dns), things like that.

    Absolutely check Comptia's outline of the material covered, and use more than one source for training. Meyers and Messer are two very popular ones.
