Introduction Hello and welcome to the CompTIA A+ course 220-901 by Pluralsight. I'm Jason Helmick, an author here at Pluralsight, and in this Introduction to the 901 Certification Exam, we'd like to address some of the most commonly asked questions about the course, the certification, and the exam itself. Now, I say we because I'm joined today by the author of the course, and close friend, Tim. Tim, thanks for taking the time to explain some of the common confusing points about the certification and such. You're welcome Jason, thanks for having me, I'm awfully glad to be here and participating in this, it's exciting stuff. You know, before we start discussing this, and there is some confusion wrapped around this, matter of fact, you can help me because I'm kind of confused. Why don't you start off by taking a moment to introduce yourself. Sure, my name is Tim Warner, I'm on the same team as Jason at Pluralsight, I'm a full-time author with the IT Ops group, and I've been heavily embroiled in CompTIA training for just about all of 2015, so I'm totally up to snuff with the content and looking forward to sharing all of this knowledge with you, the student.
