    I've been watching CBT & trainsignal videos for A+, just wondering if i just
    watch the videos you could pass the exams.

    I wouldn't recommend it.

    The reason i say that because I bought the MCDST video from CBT and went through the videos for 271 but i also read from several books too. When i took the exam, a lot of the questions wasn't even covered in the videos. Lucky for me, i had the video, two books and a virtual XP to play around with. But, it might be different for A+ video...

    So personally, i say use the video in conjunction with other study materials.

    Never use one study material, always use atleast two.

    And, get some 'hands on' experience.

    I'd advice at least two sources to study too. In addition, I think having at least two sources of practice exams is very helpful too.

    Agreed.

    I like to use vids as an additional source of studying. We are all different on how we like to study. I like to watch the vids first to get the "overview". Then i read the books and do the labs and any tests that are not dumps and then watch the vids again as a refresher. This works for me and helps it all sink in a bit better (sometimes) ;)

    When I had access to CBT Nuggets at my last work place I used to watch the Video's and then read a book to fill in the gaps. I would always as others have pointed out use at least 2 sources of training material as well as hands on.

    The A+ book has well over 1000 pages you will not get all that info from videos. I found doing the reading first then backing it up with the videos worked well for me.
