Format: Hardcover
I bought this book to study for A+ exams...I then also decided to be really smart and borrow other additional books from the local library (Exam Cram 2 and A+ Bible)...
My first piece of advice to any would be purchasers of this book is to not use any other books!! This book covers everything you need to know with extra details which are interesting/needed and should be tested by COMPTIA.
It really is a great book and I passed both tests first time and have now orderd Mike Meyers Network+ book as I am sure it is going to be just as good!

I'd recommend this book to anyone young or old wanting to know about hardware and Windows basics and who wants to pass a+!
After 3 weeks of heavy reading i've passed one of the two exams and taking the second in 2 weeks!
I am 19 and haven't ever been a technician (only building my own computers from time to time) and this book is brilliant. It filled in all those gaps from how exactly hard drives store data all the way up to the important bits of every major Windows release. Meyers adds his own style of humour and witty comments so even the worst subjects are covered with the least amount of pain.

Just about half way throught his book now and i must say most of what i have read i already know, but it's great to have a refresher. Buy this book if you want to get a fundamental knowledge of the workings of a P.C inside and out...This book really is the Bible for anyone wanting to do the A+ course and Exams.....
Forget what the last reviewer had to say as he obviously needs to get back to basics....
Buy this book you will not regret it.

Format: Hardcover
This book is one of the best A+ plus study books available. I passed first time and would not have been able to do it without this book. I hadn't study a course like this in about 5 years so this book made it very easy to get back into a study routine. I started with the Sybex Complete Study Guide but found it had a lot of information not required for the exams.
