    Not sure where to post this but here goes:

    My boss has said the infrastructure team can buy some books to help us train and develop our knowledge. Bearing in mind that I am studying for A+ and N+ next i think books by Mike Myers are an obvious choice.

    Just wondered what others would suggest reading either for these courses or books that would most help support a Microsoft Windows XP, 2003 server environment.

    Thanks

    Hi

    I used the Mike Meyers AIO for my A+ (albeit the 2006 version) and found it to be a great resource.

    For the N+ I am currently using the Sybex Network+ Deluxe study guide which I really like. His descriptions are well written and he drops in real life scenarios to help put into context what you have just read. Also with the deluxe edition there is virtual lab software, although I havent used it yet so can't comment on how useful this is.

    I used both Meyers and Sybex books for my A+ and N+. They're both good, Meyers is more aimed at the novice whereas the Sybex books seem more oriented towards those with a bit of experience. I found Meyers followed by Sybex did the trick very nicely for both certs.
    For MS certs I've only used the MSPress books but they've been more than adequate so far.
