    Google and YouTube are your friends, Professer Messer I believe is still the go to guy for CompTIA training material especially for the A+, Sec+ and N+ exams.

    CBTNuggets will cost you a subscription whereas Professor Messer won't.

    Stick with Professor Messer but at the same time if you find during the course that he mentions something you don't quite understand, then jump on Google for more information. Take a look through the exam objectives for either the A+ or N+ for which you're taking and see which areas you do recognise the names of and those that you don't so that you can see where you're going to possibly need to focus more attention on.

    The A+ has two exams and so therefore has two sets of objectives, whereas the N+ only has one exam and one set of objectives.

    If you have not yet completed any compTIA certification then stick with the A+ as your starter area before moving on as it will give you a good foundation to start from.

    Good luck

    Yes, they are the latest exams. Don't think any retirement date has been set for these exams yet either, the 7 series retired mid 2013, but not sure how often they refresh their course content etc.

    Just keep an eye on the Comptia website, tells you the exam details etc on there.

    Comptia tend to have an approx. time frame on each exam of 3 years before it's updated to a new series as far as i'm aware, therefore you have plenty of time left on the current exam before any plans for it to be retired.

    To find out the content of what the exam 'may' contain, have a look at the A+ objectives for both exams, just be aware that this may be updated at any time and therefore just because of what it shows today may not be the same in 6 months.

    Good luck with your studies.

    You need to start your own thread with your questions, jumping into another members thread asking your own specific questions is bad etiquette.
