CompTIA Strata Study Guide

CompTIA Strata Study Guide

CompTIA is a non-profit information technology trade association. CompTIA's certifications are designed by subject matter experts from across the IT industry. Each CompTIA certification is vender-neutral, covers multiple technologies, and requires demonstration of skills and knowledge widely sought after in the IT industry.

With the rapid advancement of computer and computer networking technology, achieving CompTIA certifications like CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+ or CompTIA Security+ has become more difficult. Add to that the fact that many jobs in the IT or technology-related fields don't require the in-depth knowledge required for these career fields, and CompTIA developed the Strata certification.

Many IT or technology-related fields, such as system administrator, sales engineer, account manager, and business development manager, don't require the ability to totally disassemble and re-assemble a server or to design a network from scratch. The CompTIA Strata certification covers the technology of computer hardware basics, compatibility issues and common errors, software installation and functions, and security risks and prevention. The exam accesses the candidate's knowledge of green IT and preventative maintenance of computers.
