This book is getting great reviews on Amazon. Here are some comments.
Was the only resource I needed
If you have a background in PC hardware and already know your way around and computer, then this should be all you really need to be able to pass the exams.
From the arrival of the book, to taking the tests took only 3 weeks until I felt I was prepared enough. Really, a good piece of reference material to pick up and keep.
Great Tool for Certification or Refresher
I've worked as a computer technician for about eight years, getting my A+ certification just prior to being hired and re-certifying as part of a company-wide training curriculum a couple years later. When I'm not studying for something new, I like to pick up a study guide for one of the basic certifications as a refresher. Mike Meyers got me through my actual certifications and up until now he has been, without question, my favorite author on the subject. Darril Gibson will be my first choice from now on.
Terrific and Exhaustively Complete Test Prep
If you're going to prep for this test, I cannot imagine a better resource than this book.
Personally, I found the following topics very well-handled: Understanding the File Systems, Expansion Cards and Peripherals, and Configuring Windows.
Excellent resource for CompTIA A+
This book is really pleasant to read and learn from. At first I took cbtnuggets.com videos for CompTIA A+ and I am really happy I did it. 95% of the info you need its there but sometimes you need some more specific info on particular subjects like how basses work, clock speeds etc. This book can fill this gap and at the same time it will be really enjoyable to read because of the clear and concise writing approach that the author uses. One more advantage is that it covers all new topics CompTIA A+ has included like Mobile Devices Chapter.
