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!
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.
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.
