    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    There are a couple of ways to study for the A+:

    1. Self study
    2. Thru a training provider

    Now depending on your age, and if one of your local colleges does it, you may be able to sit the A+ course maybe sit the exam for free.

    I wholeheartedly recommend self-study. The Meyers' A+ All-in-One Exam Guide Sixth Edition is excellent.

    Hey! Welcome.

    I'm currently working through the Mike Meyers book everyone keeps mentioning. It's a big book, but it's nicely written. Accessible. I'm currently about 15 chapters in, of 22. I really recommend it.

    ... Although I was dissapointed that it wasn't this Mike Myers.


    Self-study's definitely a way to go. There's a guide to it here if you're interested.
