    Hi guys,

    Just finished uni and plan on eventually running my own little business, so I am currently practising for the CompTIA A+ Certification.

    I know that there are many ways to study for this, self study, online courses, live courses etc. I was thinking of self study as this is the cheapest option, just to get a book from Amazon and then take the exam until I came across this guy called Mike Meyers. His videos are pretty sweet and he is a funny little guy sometimes.

    His course is is basically $600 which is one of the cheapest I have seen, the others are £2100.

    I just wanted some advice as to how you all went about doing it etc.

    Thanks.

    Yes I already searched and a few posts came up about his book but nothing about his course.

    MOst people on here have self studied the A+. I don't think I have ever seen a post on here mentioning that they were doing the video course. Probably because ther is no point the book will suffice.

    That's what I was thinking, just to get a book.

    Do you know how much time you should give yourself to learn everything, even if you are from a IT background.

    E.g. should you spend a few months or 6 months from getting the book to taking the exam?

    Thanks.

    That's because you changed the title.

    If I were you I would either look at the Trainsignal or CBTNuggets material if you want to do videos, failing that just getting the book should suffice.

    I actually read the book 3 times and I did about 3-4 20 minute sessions a day.

    Although I actually really enjoyed reading it but I am a bit of a geek when it comes to stuff like that.
