CompTIA’s 220-701 certification exam is the first of two exams to be passed before earning your A+ certification. This exam measures the necessary competencies of an entry-level IT professional with a recommended 500 hours of hands-on experience in the lab or field. The 220-701 certification tests your understanding of computer technology, networking and security, as well as the communication skills and professionalism that will be required in the field or within an organization.
The second exam required to earn CompTIA’s A+ certification is the 220-701 exam. The 220-701 and 220-702 exam exams together make up the CompTIA A+, which is ISO 17024 Accredited (Personnel Certification Accreditation).
This test consists of multiple-choice questions. There are no case study type questions and the test is not adaptive. You will be required to attempt approximately 100 questions in 90 minutes. To pass, you need a score of 675 on a scale of 100-900.
There is no quick mantra for success. Several studies have shown that the best way to learn is to take a test! Practice tests that is. Taking practice tests before a subsequent exam appears to be the most popular method of learning, even more favored that other popular methods such as repetition and concept mapping.
