What is needed Dec 10 2008
By cbears8586 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've read a few A+ books recently and trying to find the right balance between too much unneeded information and not enough this books strikes that balance. It has the facts you need and if you need more information- you can easily find it online as well. The accompanying CD is more than adequate as well. If you're more than just basic PC literate I would definitely recommend this book for the tests as well as for better personal knowledge.

You cannot pass with this book alone. Aug. 15 2009
By Spencer Lomax - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I would recommend for a newcomer to the pc technician realm. It lays the basic troubleshooting groundwork needed by a technician, but do not think you can pass the A+ with this book alone. You will also need to watch Mike Myers' video on the Osbourne website and purchase some practice exam questions. My main complaint was the multiple comments in the book about the A+ testing almost exclusively on Windows 2000 and Windows XP. I did not find this to be true on the actual test. One example was the question: "A file 'user.da0' indicates what?" This is a Windows 9x registry backup file, and is not mentioned in the book at all.

Best CompTIA A+ Book on market!! March 19 2009
By Brad81 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was very weary of A+ certification exam study guides and initially thought the only way to study was to break apart the tower, and learn. This book proved otherwise. This is a no nonsense book that blends industry standards with "keep it simple stupid" tactics. I love how the book is set up and cannot understand why any college or university would opt out of using this book instead of ,with all due respect, the over complicated writings of Jean Andrews. The book gives definitions, examples, and highlights what you need to know in paragraph form. AWESOME BOOK!!!
Good book March 2 2013

This book is a great buy, it is very big though, but it covers everything in details line for line, so find a quiet room because there is a lot of information in this book
