CompTIA A+ Essential Objectives

  1. 1. CompTIA A+ 220-701 Objectives Version 2.0 1 of 17Copyright © 2008 by the Computing Technology Industry Association. All rights reserved.The CompTIA A+ 220-701 Objectives are subject to change without notice.CompTIA A+ Essentials (2009 Edition) ObjectivesExam Number: 220-701IntroductionIn order to receive CompTIA A+ certification a candidate must pass two exams. The first exam isCompTIA A+ Essentials, exam number 220-701. The CompTIA A+ Essentials examination measuresnecessary competencies for an entry-level IT professional with the equivalent knowledge of at least 500hours of hands-on experience in the lab or field. Successful candidates will have the knowledge required tounderstand the fundamentals of computer technology, networking, and security, and will have the skillsrequired to identify hardware, peripheral, networking, and security components. Successful candidates willunderstand the basic functionality of the operating system and basic troubleshooting methodology, practiceproper safety procedures, and will effectively interact with customers and peers.CompTIA A+ is ISO 17024 Accredited (Personnel Certification Accreditation) and, as such, undergoesregular reviews and updates to the exam objectives. The following CompTIA A+ Essentials objectivesreflect the subject areas in the 2009 Edition of the exam and result from subject matter expert workshopsand industry-wide survey results regarding the skills and knowledge required of an entry-level ITprofessional. The percentages in this document represent the relative importance of the subject areas(domains) in the associated body of knowledge, and together establish the foundation of an entry-level ITprofessional.This examination blueprint includes domain weighting, test objectives, and example content. Exampletopics and concepts are included to clarify the test objectives and should not be construed as acomprehensive listing of all the content of this examination.Candidates are encouraged to use this document to guide their studies. The contents of the examinationblueprint help prioritize topics and provide a guide of what to expect on the CompTIA A+ Essentials exam.The table below lists the domains measured by this examination and the extent to which they arerepresented. The CompTIA A+ Essentials (2009 Edition) exam is based on these objectives.Domain Percentage of Examination1.0 Hardware 27%2.0 Troubleshooting, Repair & Maintenance 20%3.0 Operating System and Software 20%4.0 Networking 15%5.0 Security 8%6.0 Operational Procedure 10%Total 100%**Note: The lists of examples provided in bulleted format below each objective are not exhaustive lists. Otherexamples of technologies, processes or tasks pertaining to each objective may also be included on the exam althoughnot listed or covered in this objectives document.CompTIA is constantly reviewing the content of our exams and updating test questions to be sure ourexams are current and the security of the questions is protected. When necessary, we will publish updatedexams based on existing exam objectives. Please know that all related exam preparation materials will stillbe valid.
