CompTIA A+ 902

Code: 220-902

CompTIA A+ 220-902 Exam Objectives

220-902 Domain 1.0 – Windows Operating Systems – 29% of the exam

  • The operating system section is functionally identical to the 220-802 exam objectives, except Windows XP is removed and Windows 8/8.1 is added.
  • Windows-based network and OS command line tools are now part of the domain.

220-902 Domain 2.0 – Other Operating Systems and Technologies – 12% of the exam

  • If you’ve always been concerned with CompTIA’s focus on the Windows operating system, then you’ll be happy with this new domain. Perhaps the most significant change to either of the 900 series exams is this addition of Mac OS and Linux fundamentals. Although domain 1.0 includes the system requirements and installation of Windows, this domain instead focuses on the usability of Mac OS and Linux from a user’s perspective.
  • Mobile device usability is also included in this new domain, and Windows Phone has been added to the iOS and Android requirements.
  • There’s a significant list of about 20 Linux commands in this domain. This sub-domain section is a pretty big addition to the exam objectives that will take quite a bit of additional study.
  • The client-side virtualization concepts from the 220-802 exam objectives have been brought over, and basic cloud computing concepts have been added.
  • There’s a larger emphasis on mobile device configuration in the 220-902 exam objectives, especially with email and synchronization.

220-902 Domain 3.0 – Security – 22% of the exam

  • Security has received a much-needed update that include the addition of specific operating system security settings and features.
  • The 220-902 update now includes a detailed section on securing mobile devices

220-902 Domain 4.0 – Software Troubleshooting – 24% of the exam

  • With the addition of new operating systems to the exam objectives, you’ll now need to troubleshoot across Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. You’ll now need to know what to do when NTLDR or GRUB goes missing.
  • There’s now a larger emphasis on mobile device troubleshooting, including overheating, frozen systems, and connectivity troubleshooting.

220-902 Domain 5.0 – Operational Procedures – 13% of the exam

  • This domain was formerly part of the 220-801 exam, and is has now been moved into the 220-902. This was already a well-structured domain, and you’ll find the 220-902 version to be virtually identical to the 220-801 exam objectives.
