Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The CompTIA A + Complete Study Guide is an exhaustive book. It starts with Motherboards, Processors and Memory and ends with Understanding Operational Procedures (for Part 1 - 220-801). Part II, 220-802 starts with operating system basics and progresses through Windows software and ends with SW and HW Troubleshooting. Each chapter includes photos and graphics and concludes with Review Questions. The answers to the review questions are available in an appendix. Each chapter also includes performance based questions and answers for those are provided in an additional appendix.

It includes a good Table of Contents and a very thorough Index. At over 1100 pages, you'll find this study guide useful as you prepare for your test.

All in all this is a fine study guide.

CompTIA A+ Complete Study Guide Authorized Courseware: Exams 220-801 and 220-802 is more than just a study guide. It is a comprehensive set of resources to help you prepare for the A+ certification exam. And for those who plan to perform help desk and support tasks in the field, this book includes tons of hands-on information that will be of practical use.

In addition to the information provided by the book, there are also tons of practice questions. And for those who want additional resources to supplement their studies, a bunch of materials are provided online. Those include four full-length practice exams, electronic flashcards and a PDF glossary.

Sybex sells a separate package of practice exams. While several are likely the same as those provided for download with this book, the practice exam software always includes more questions. That is the primary tool that people use when they just want to pass the exam, but that does not guarantee results. While it takes some time, the best understanding will come from reading through this book along with practice exams and other resources. And of course reading other books won't hurt you either. But this book is so comprehensive that it covers most everything you need to know to succeed on the exam.

CompTIA is constantly updating their exams. This book includes tons of updated areas on hardware. But for whatever reason, the exam always seems to expect to know how to troubleshoot older software. Techniques applicable to Windows XP are covered here. Readers should know that even if this seems out of date it is still relevant for the exam. Not to mention, you may still see it in the field.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book has to be one of the most detailed CompTIA A+ study guides I have ever seen. It goes over everything in great detail starting from the basics, sometimes I think they start a little too basic, but it never hurts to refresh!

The book reads very easily, even my "mostly" computer illiterate friend gave it a shot and not only did he understand everything, but he asked if he could borrow it when I was through with it! Another feature I liked about this book is that it uses lots of illustrations and graphics of how everything works and not just saying "Find the ... menu and do ..." like so many other books I've gotten.

My only suggestion/complaint about this book is that it'd be very nice if there was an e-book format with the book seeing as carrying around 1000+ page book around to classes gets old fast.

Comprehensive, discount coupons. I think this has everything I could possibly want in a study guide. I was referred to this guide by the instructor of a course I took as a source of more indepth information.

Having created both an elearning course and a workbook for these new A+ exams, I have extensive experience with these objects. I wish this book had been available as a reference when I was preparing my materials. This is an excellet to-the-point book that gives you what you need to know for A+ certification.

I just passed the A+ 801 test and am about to take the 802 test. I used this book and the downloadable software with all the sample tests. I used some other material as well and created a giant spreadsheet for referencing information so I worked hard to make sure I passed, and compared to the Michael Meyers book, I found this one to be a lot more focused on the material.
