Product Description

Amazon Review

The best A+ certification guide in the field just got better. Because let's face it; in terms of walking you through the computer from the ground up, there wasn't anything better out there. Michael Meyers' A+ All-In-One Certification Exam Guide goes beyond the normal testable topics and really wants you to know what problems you're likely to face as an actual technician in the real world. Meyers gives lots of hands-on advice, frankly admitting that this topic is still tested but he's not quite sure why, telling you that power supplies can be repaired (and should be) even if the test says otherwise, and generally giving copious examples from his tech experience to show "what can go wrong."

In fact, if a major criticism can be levelled at this book nowadays, it's that it might go a bit too in-depth at times; Meyers' zeal to show you everything he knows about computers, makes it possible to get lost in the wealth of information and not focus on critically tested subjects. But keep in mind that if you even truly understand 60 per cent of this book, you'll pass the exam with flying colours--it's that good.

The book has 10 questions at the end of every chapter, which aren't modelled specifically after the A+ exam, but they are fairly tough questions nonetheless. There's also a CD with the standard array of video clips and test questions, but it has several tech utilities that Meyers himself recommends--a great value.

In short, this is simply one of the best test-prep books on the market for any exam, and it's also one of the few books that's completely honest: It is, when it comes down to it, an all-in-one guide. Buy this and you will pass. Highly recommended. --William Steinmetz

This book is very useful, has a lot of facts and is a great investment for someone looking to go in to I.T, but be warned the book alone will not prepare you enough for the two exams !!!!! I went by the book, studied far more than what was advised by Michael Meyers took the practice tests and passed time & time again. On the day of the exams I was totally unprepared for what I was taking. There are a great deal of questions on Win 2K where the book only touches the surface. You really need to know your stuff before taking these exams. Also, I think it is very cheeky to ask for $ to unlock the practice tests on the CD after you have already paid for the book !!!! If I would have known this I probably would have taken a course instead !!

This book is great for an education as it partains to basic hardware functionality. However, the book lacks Operating System details and fundamentals that are essential for today's computer technician in the field. I would have liked to have seen more usefull information in regards to recent operating systems. Also, I might add, You won't get close to passing CompTIA's Operating System Technologies exam with this one.

I am about to finish reading this book and must say its one of the best PC books I have on not just for the A+ exams, but as a reference book as well. I would agree the author went a bit into detail, but it is good as he goes on to explain things in an easy non technical way to give even the none PC literate a good run down of the subject matter. I have not taken the exams yet, but I am already beginning to feel confident I would get through easily with the aid of this book. So, I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to pass the A+ exams and for those who are new to this field. But, be prepared to invest some time as this book needs to be studied seriously with proper preparation and am sure you would not have problems when you sit for the exams. I would keep you posted on the outcome of my results, and good luck to everyone who wants to sit the exam soon and most importantly, thanks to M.Meyers for good A+ study guide book.

I used this book to study for both A+ exams and passed them first time with flying colours. I had limited IT knowledge before and found this book invaluable. It's clear and easy to understand, it starts with the basics in each subject then goes into more depth, it covers a lot of ground. It's written in such a way that you don't feel like you are just cramming in facts for an exam, more like you are learning how everything works. It's enjoyable to read as it's not as dry as some study guides are. I would recommend this book to anyone and i will always use his books for any certification i do in the future.

Being relatively new to the industry, I found this an extremely well-written book, everything was explained, even the most basic of terminology, so that there was no way to get lost, as is sometimes the case with other authors. I did the course at home, with just this book as my only resource, I passed both exams on the same day, My next investment has to be Network+ by the same incredible team, which includes M Meyers, McGraw Hill, etc...Your Book is Number ONE, in my book...

Well, I'm just about half-way through this book and let me tell you that if your thinking of changing your career path into the world of I.T. then this is a great place to start, the book is full of easy to understand diagrams and very thorough explanations, you also get a cd-rom with the book which has loads and loads of questions for you to practice on before taking the exam. If your thinking of going into I.T. this book is a must.
