There can be two goals when you plan for CompTIA A+ exams:

1. Gain the skills needed for a successful career as a computer and IT support professional.
2. Develop the knowledge and skills needed to pass the two CompTIA A+ exams to earn the A+ Certification.

Here are a few tips that will help you be well prepared for the exams:

Tip 1: Understand the CompTIA A+ Exam Objective

Make a note of the CompTIA Exam Objectives and understand it thoroughly to plan out your study. The course objectives will  serve as an ultimate checklist for your studies.

Tip 2: Be curious to learn about the interiors of a computer
Knowing what the inside of a computer looks like and how all the parts connect to each other is very important. Take apart a computer, and practice taking adapter cards out of the computer, unscrewing hard drives and optical drives, and examining individual components. This works best if you have a desktop computer, and preferably one that you can use for practice (not the main computer you need for day-to-day use, or the one you are using to complete your online computer training course). Become familiar with the cabling, connectors, and how everything fits together.

Tip 3: Register for additional study resources available on the Internet
It is advisable to supplement your studies with additional online resources. Good review materials can be found for free online, and include tutorials, video clips, pictures, and other resources to help provide a well-rounded approach to your studies. It is wise to go for comprehensive e-learning solution that offers practice tests, simulators, lesson and video tutorials to pass CompTIA  A+  exams.

Tip 4: Practice!
With uCertify’s pre-assessment, post-assessment, quizzes, flashcards, and practice test you get ample opportunities to prepare and practice for the exams. Additionally, with Review mode you can learn while you practice for the exam.

If you follow these 4 simple test, you are sure to perform well in the exam. On the day of the test, get a good night’s sleep, eat a healthy meal before taking the test, arrive a few minutes early, and go in with a positive attitude. You will want to schedule both sections of the exams back to back on the same day. Be confident in your first “gut reaction” to the questions, and try and eliminate possible answers through the  process of elimination. By narrowing down the choices, you can focus on the remaining choices to help select the best answer.

By following these simple steps you will find yourself well prepared for the test. Passing the CompTIA A+ exams and earning the CompTIA A+ Certification will be great for your resume and your career and will give you the knowledge and credentials needed for a successful career as a computer technician and an IT support professional.

Gamification in eLearning is the use of game theory and game mechanics in non-game contexts to engage and motivate your users. Did you know almost 80% of the learners say that they would be more productive if their university/institution or work was more game-like?  or have you heard that over 60% of learners would be motivated by leader boards and increased competition between students?

No wonder, gamification is growing in popularity and can produce measurable results, if used properly. Incorporating elements from games into the classroom is a great way to provide students with opportunities to act freely, show competency, and work together. There are many different benefits of using gamification within your eLearning courses and we’ve listed out a few below.

  1. Provides instant feedback. One great example is if you are using a basic gaming component such as a leaderboard after a quiz or assignment, or you can access the Readiness score or Study Planner, the user immediately know where they stand among their peers.
  2. Builds engagement. If you are using a reward system, such as badges or points, you can allow your students and users to use those badges and points for real benefits. Or if you can flaunt your score on the social media platforms with your friends then it certainly drives more engagement.
  3. Boosts productivity. By implementing a gaming reward system (badges, points, etc.) based on specific activities within your eLearning course, students are encouraged to accomplish those tasks in your desired order.
  4. Increases learning retention. Students are able to better learn and retain the content when they relate to it differently than just reading or watching a lecture. As per a study student can retain 90% more if they are involved in the learning process even via simulations. That’s where uCertify’s labs gives you an edge.
  5. More time spent and fun Simply put, your students are likely to spend more time within your eLearning course if it is more enjoyable, engaging, and fun.

One of the biggest benefits of gamification is that it is fun. Having a non-traditional learning experience with leaderboards, badges, points, and rewards is a major plus in your students’ eyes and makes it more enjoyable to everyone.

Kelvin Rekakesuma has over 9 years of experience in the Information Technology Domain. He is currently working with Intel security as Technical Support Engineer. He has successfully qualified 5 IT certification exam, namely:  CCNP, CCNA, CEH, FCNSA, and FCNSP.

He recently accessed our CCNP Routing And Switching ROUTE 300-101 Course and has provided the following feedback, that we are more than happy to share:

The uCertify CCNP Route 300-101 is a combination of Pre-Assessment, Chapter & Lessons, Practice Tests and Post Assessment. Personally, I like the Chapters & Lessons part, it combines the explanation with graphical illustration, a snapshot of essential sample configuration and sample output from the real device, which will be very helpful to better visualized and understand the hard concept for each topic.
The Practice test portion is available in 3 modes: Test, Learn, and Review mode. I found the Practice test in learning mode is very helpful, it give an explanation for each practice questions and refer me to which topics in Chapter & Lessons for me to revisit the topics should need to strengthen in that area.
Overall I found the PrepKit will be very useful not only for those preparing for the first time attempt of the certification but also as a refresher for those who already taken the exam and want to revisit new topics in the CCNP Route certification.

We are working on all the areas of improvement mentioned by him to provide a better user-experience. You can check out the complete post on our official facebook page, by clicking on the Reviews tab. To know more about Mr. Kelvin Rekakesuma, you can contact him via his LinkedIn profile.
