Hello,
I'm going to get certified for Comptia A+. Is Vista going to be included in exam? Also if somebody has any tips and suggestions regarding the most recent exam I would greately appreciate them. Software part of the exam is what concerns me most.

Not being nasty but I would not bother with A+ nowadays. If you want to get proper IT skills, you should look at Microsoft certification paths. I have not seen a Job specification in the last 2 years or so with desired certification of A+, it is all MCSE and MCSA or MCP at a Minimum.

Oh and I am not sure if Vista is included, Check the Comptia website for the course guide.

Thanks
Karl

MCP is next on my list. I would like to knock out the easier one first to show my employer that I'm worth spending money for on higher grade certifications like MCP. I figured A+ wouldn't take long to prepare for any whay. Thanks!

I do not see Vista as being a course offered through CompTia. And while I agree in part with Karl, I do still see A+ as a minimum requirements from time to time. Our latest hire was required to have (at a minimum) an A+ certification.
I would suggest logging in to any forum that covers MCSE (such as this one)
http://www.mcmcse.com/forums/
Or perhaps one such as Braindumps (I've found a lot of good information there.)
