Yes, Printers and Laser printers are like 15% of the test, If I remember correctly.

Doesn't sound like you studied to hard. GL anyways.

it will ask about different printer interfaces e.g. network, serial, parellel, USB, infrared. you need to know about the different processes inside like transfer, cleaning, charging etc

I wasn't trying to insult you in any way, But if you looked at the requirements of the test and the A+ Objectives you would see that Printers and Laser printers are a considerable part of the test.
I am also not saying your bad at what you do, I just thought you didn't look into the test as much as you should have.

Bottom line is that if you want the best chance of passing both tests, read up on the A+ Objectives and study study study...

You need to know the general process the printer takes from picking up the paper, to going through the fuser and the toner sticking to it etc...

Know the terminology. They dont ask many questions on it. I think i had maybe 4 or 5 out of 80 questions on that topic.
