    Right, im thinking of doing this course myself without the help of an expensive training provider. I was wondering if anyone could recommend any decent books? would have to map onto the 2003 sylabbus. Also, any advice or techniques would be appreciated. I was thinking I could just read a few books, understand them then just take the exam. Cool eh? Would save 500 quid proberbly.

    Hi,

    These are both great books:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0072229918/qid=1111661095/sr=8-1/ref=pd_ka_0/026-8439384-5094043

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0789731312/ref=pd_null_recs_b/026-8439384-5094043


    Then when you are ready get over to http://getcertified4less.com/

    That is what I am doing. :thumbleft

    Cheers but do these book cover the a+ 2003 exam or is it 2000? I heard that the 2003 exam is based on win XP and not win 2000.

    Hi Ant,

    Yes these books cover the new 2003 objectives. If you go to the http://www.comptia.org/certification/a/default.aspx site and look at the objectives you will see that 9X, NT, 2000, ME and XP are all part of the sylubus :ohmy

    Just an FYI, guys...we have a "Books and Resources" thread pinned ot the top of the A+ forum. The amazon link to the Meyers book is there but so far, that's it. I encourage you and anyone to post to that thread with additional resources that might help. Also, for the sake of folks who are also interested in this cert, you might want to start posting such queries and comments in the A+ forum. Thanks.

    Here's the link to the "Books and Resources" thread. Cheers. :)
