Q2) How Many Questions Are on the CompTIA A+ Exams?
Each of the two CompTIA A+ exams has no more than 90 questions. The combination of the two exams required for certification will have no more than 180 questions.

This will consist of about 12 multiple-choice questions.
Q3) How Long Does The CompTIA A+ Certification Last?
Your CompTIA A+ certification is good for three years from the date you pass your certification exam. Through our continuing education program, you can easily renew CompTIA A+ and extend it for additional three-year periods. Read on to learn more about the certification period and how you can renew CompTIA A+.
Q4) What Types of Questions Are on the CompTIA A+ Exams?
The CompTIA A+ exams include a combination of multiple-choice questions, drag-and-drop activities and performance-based items. The multiple-choice questions are single and multiple response. Performance-based items test your ability to solve problems in a simulated environment, which is why CompTIA A+ is recognized as a performance certification. When taking the exams, it’s important to manage your time wisely. Most of the performance-based questions will appear at the beginning of the exam, and you won’t be able to see a clock when working on each one.
Q5) How Much Does the CompTIA A+ Certification Cost?
It's a simple question, but there can be multiple answers based on your situation and the options you choose. Of course, the quick answer is that each exam voucher you’ll need to acquire to take your test is $219. You will need two vouchers to pass two exams to certify. However, you may qualify for discounts that can decrease this price, and you may want to consider additional learning and training that can change the bottom line as well. Read on to find out more.
Q6) Why Does the CompTIA A+ Certification Expire After Three Years?
Your job in IT comes standard with constant change, and it’s understood that technology advances at a breakneck pace. Your career success requires you to be ahead of the curve and be familiar with the technology that makes a meaningful impact in the market and constantly changes our lives at work and at home. CompTIA works closely with industry partners and has determined that a substantial change in the use of technology usually takes place about every three years. To that end, we’re continuously updating our exams. Renewing your certification gives you a great opportunity to document your knowledge in technology areas that matter to employers and are important to your IT career.
Q7) How Do I Get My CompTIA A+ Certification?
You can earn the CompTIA A+ certification by passing two separate exams. There’s no single way to ensure you pass, but there’s common sense advice that can increase your chances to pass your exams and achieve your CompTIA A+ certification. In their very basic nature, the two exams that lead to CompTIA A+ certification are not that much different from any other written test. Both exams use various question types to verify your knowledge in specific areas of information technology, such as computer hardware and software as they relate to IT support. Being well prepared remains your best bet to score a positive exam outcome of passing the tests and being awarded the CompTIA A+ certification.
Q8) How Long Will It Take Me to Get CompTIA A+?
In short, there’s no straight answer to this question because it all depends on how much you already know, how much you have to learn, how quickly you learn and when you’ll feel confident enough to take the exam and pass it. Some classroom training covers all of the CompTIA A+ material in one week, and others stretch it out over several months. If you choose to learn on your own, you may be able to acquire the necessary knowledge within a few days, weeks or months – depending on how much knowledge and IT experience you already have. While we cannot tell you how long it will take you personally to get your CompTIA A+ certification, we do recommend that you invest enough time in your exam preparation to make sure that you know what you need to know instead of racing through the curriculum and running a greater risk of missing some exam objectives and requirements.
