    I have been looking at the Comp TIA courses and i am slowly coming round to the self study idea, the problem is i am not totally sure were to begin.

    I have seen the following books on Amazon but cant be sure they are upto date


    Would somebody be so kind as to give me some help with direction as i am VERY keen to get started but on the other hand i dont want to spend money that i dont need to. I did look at some courses with computech etc but they a very expensive.

    The CompTIA A+ Complete Study Guide in your link is not a book that I've had any contact with, but the other 2 offered for sale with it (Mike Meyers All In One and PC Technician Street Smarts) are both top notch and just what you need to get you through the A+.

    For future reference there is a whole forum dedicated to the A+ in which many of these types of questions have been answered, you'll find it here http://www.certforums.co.uk/forums/forum29.html

    If you're fairly new to IT, Meyers AIO is a better book. the explanations are clear and if focuses entirely on the A+ material.
    The Complete... is a lot drier. It seems to be aimed at techs who have a little bit of experience and goes a bit further than A+ in some places.

    I used both and I think I would have struggled with The Complete... if I hadn't read through and understood Meyers AIO first.
