HASH(0x9ed2390c) out of 5 stars Very impressive A+/Tech learning tool. Nov. 1 2012
By Vankman - Published on
Format: Paperback
As an A+/computer class instructor I can tell you this book is very well written, up to date and useful for "hands-on". It is an excellent resource for learning, teaching and as a Techs bench reference tool. It covers both hardware and operating systems better than any other book I have seen. Windows 8 is even covered in some detail where appropriate-which makes the book very useful for those who have newer systems. It is obviously written from an actual hands-on approach and the A+ supporting questions and Objectives references are relative and spot on. I highly recommend this book for both students and teachers.

HASH(0x9ed23924) out of 5 stars VeryGood book, Terrible CD-Rom Jan. 30 2015
By Sedrick - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book is full of good information. The CD is terrible. lol. I suggest you do hands on configuring wireless access points, stmp, and imap. I also suggest you know many cable types by their number representation. (ex: Rxx, IEEE xxxx, etc). Know the form factors for different types of computers and know what hardware they need. (ex: Home Theater, Audio/Video editor PC, etc).

HASH(0x9eedca74) out of 5 stars It get's an A+ from me Jan. 22 2013
By Cynthia Edwards - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I took a course for A+ certification (not really knowing what I had gotten into). The book that I was studying from was hard to understand. I found the book by Holcombe easy to read and up to date including new technology. It had great study questions and a DVD for extra study. I have recommended to my classmates and will purchase the networking book as well. The delivery was quick and much earlier than expected.

HASH(0xa12fc9c0) out of 5 stars Book is good, CD is lacking in exercises and content. Dec 19 2014
By PandaWatch - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book by Jane Holcombe has lots of info, recaps info, and has practice quizes. My biggest gripe/complaint is with the included disk. For a book on computers the disk is sure outdated with laughable and disappointing content and exercises. For example i was excited to do one of the exercises when under certain categories there's nothing. Why even have the category if there's no content under it? Feels really outdated and hardly interactive. the cd is secondary to the book you might say but in this digital age it carries just as much potential weight as a book and learning tool. More research should have been done on my part. to close the cd has a PDF of the book but beyond that is a major letdown makes me wonder how the disk is with other training guides like this one:

HASH(0x9f08760c) out of 5 stars A great guide for getting your A+ certifiction Oct. 12 2015
By Mike S - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can honestly say that this book is brilliant. Chapter by chapter this book gives you everything you need to take your A+ exam. I went through this book in about a month before taking my exam and without this book I know I would not have done as well as I did. Everything was presented clearly and laid out in an easy to understand manner. I have not learned this much since I was in college. I recommend this book to anyone looking to get certified.
