You will find that one book of the two I mentioned will have some outdated material and then the other does not, and then the situation reverses itself in other chapters...so BOTH books have some outdated material.
NO other two books compliment each other as well as these two do.
Make yourself some 4 x 6 or larger flashcards to take notes on while reading each chapter. Number the flashcards with even numbers for the information you want to capture from one of the books and read a chapter, find the corresponding chapter if any from the other book and use the odd numbers that fit between the even ones you created,,...you then have a "set" of numbered flashcards for that subject that contains the material from both books.
Then when you are thru both books all chapters go thru the cards. Take the test within a day or two of going thru all the cards you made. I think you will pass the exam. I passed on the first try using this method, studying for 9 weeks.
However, I had taken a networking degree program at the Tech School level in 2001 and have been working as a help desk technician (only answering calls..basic stuff) since 2006, so these books are a great refresher if you have minimal background.
I was more than pleasantly surprised by the amount of information in this book, and by the way in which it is presented. Not wrapped in "stories" that make the book thicker without making it better, the information (and there is a LOT of it) is presented in a clear and concise method that makes it easier to understand and retain. My opinion is there is no wasted space in this book, and I have been a consumer of technical literature for over 35 years (I am 55 as of this writing) and have a personal library spanning more than 200 books. This will certainly be a "Top Shelf" addition for me.
If you are studying to take the A+ Certification exams and/or want a powerful reference, this book (or the one from this line applicable to the test you are taking) is a recommended buy. And I got mine through Amazon, for which I am additionally happy.
My general advise for preparing - memorize port numbers, and all commands like ping, msconfig, etc.
