CASP+ (CAS-003) Training Resources

CASP Exam

So you may have noticed there are not a TON of resources out there for CASP+ like there are for other CompTIA certifications. Let’s face it – everything pales in comparison to CompTIA A+ and Network+ (not to mention Security+).

You will note that I have been making quick, fun quizzes for you here at the blog to give you a sense for the types of information you must know and the level to which you need to know it. Here is a link to the first of the five quizzes.

But what about other resources? Well, I skimmed through the textbook below and I can definitely endorse it! If you are interested in supporting this blog in a small way, be sure to make your purchase using the link below!

As far as Practice Exams go, I will try some more digging, but this blog site may be the best option as there are just not full practice exams yet I have found that we can trust! Have no fear…if you keep taking and enjoying mine – I will keep making them!

DON’T FORGET!

As you study, you will want to track your progress against the official exam objectives from CompTIA:

Also, the good folks at CompTIA were kind enough to give us some sample questions:

Python Variables

Learning Python – Lesson 5: More on Numbers and Math

Python Programming

It’s time to dig deeper into our work with numbers (including math) and strings.

What is Your Type?

First of all, it might be handy (especially as you learning), to have Python report the type of a variable or a literal value. For example:

C:\Users\terry>py
Python 3.7.4 (tags/v3.7.4:e09359112e, Jul  8 2019, 20:34:20) [MSC v.1916 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> type(199.9)
<class 'float'>
>>> type("Howdy!")
<class 'str'>
>>> type(10043)
<class 'int'>
>>> a = "This is cool!"
>>> type(a)
<class 'str'>
>>>

More on Division

Division in Python comes in two variations:

/ carries out floating point division

// caries out integer (truncating) division

For example:

>>> 15 / 4
3.75
>>> 15 // 4
3

Math Precedence

Many of the math precedence rules would make sense to us (those that took some math in school!) For example, multiplication wins over addition. But fortunately, Python supports the use of ( ) to indicate precedence. This keeps us from having to worry about default behaviors. Here is an example:
