5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it!
This book was part of my study material for the exam. I passed the test, enough said.
Published on Nov. 14 1997

3.0 out of 5 stars Wait for the updated version (Feb '98)
A good start, but way, way behind the times.
Many questions in sample tests aren't covered in the book.Several of the questions submitted by the authors are very ambiguous, and in one case, probably wrong. Some of their questions were presented in the wrong practice exam, thus hadn't been covered yet. The questions from other sources were much better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good intro to the A+ program, but not a good study guide, Nov. 21 2002
By 
DAN (Ontario, Canada) - See all my reviews
I have purchased this book to find out what the A+ certification is all about, which it did explained BUT this is by no means a study guide. I recommend the A+ Exam Cram or Mike Meyers A+ All in One Certification or any other A+ certification books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too bad a rating of "zero" is not available ..., Sept. 15 1999
By A Customer
I've never felt so cheated after buying a book. It was poorly written and poorly edited. Also, the authors place too many "war stories" in the text and not enough of the technical details needed for the A+. Luckily, I passed the test recently (no thanks to this book).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, nice illustrations., June 23 1999
By A Customer
I think it is a pretty good book, it includes pictures for both the hardware and software sections of the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disorder and Early Sorrow., March 20 1999
By A Customer
A fitting description for this book, even though it is also the name of one of Thomas Mann's novellas. This book should not have even been published, because it is confusing, misleading and contains some outright errors. A scandalous waste of time. Don't even read it from the library. Use other guides. Even "A+ For Dummies" is better than this waste of trees.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Guys, I almost threw in the towel, Jan. 11 1999
By 
After reading this book I told myself 'forget about A+ Certification'but after reading the reviews I feel so much better.This book was very confusing for someone with less than 1 years experience in the computer industry.I agree with another reader who said this should be a news/magz acticle.Anyone have any good recommandation for a good test prep for A+ ?

1.0 out of 5 stars Concur with all previous comments, Dec 18 1998
By A Customer
This is a marketing pamphlet, not a study guide. The authors should be ashamed of themselves for writing this, and even more ashamed for releasing a new edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't be duped into buying this book!, Oct. 15 1998
By A Customer
No matter for what reason you are considering this text - STOP! No substantiative material is involved, only attempts to suggest other resources or reference points. Completely lacking in tecnical data and much akin to a first rough draft of an English composition thesis statement on factors surrounding issues about information concerning before, during and after A+ cerfication ... see what I mean. It only gets one star because the system does not allow none!

2.0 out of 5 stars Publisher could do much better, no cd, book upside down, July 12 1998
By A Customer
Although the book was well written there were no other aids like a cdrom. Pages themselves were upside down from outer cover and some pages were not properly positioned when printed. There are several other books much better than this one. I would not buy. (hard cover binding reviewed)

1.0 out of 5 stars EXTREMELY NASTY!, June 25 1998
By A Customer
as has been repeated before this book is a sales pitch with only 1/10 of it being technical info. the info is very vague and poorly organized. review questions are vague and many answers are WRONG. the authors just wanted to make some money but NOT to educate anyone.
