    No need for a training provider mate, why not get a good book and an old PC to use?

    Hi welcome, :D

    Like what most people will say to you on here as they've said to me dont waste money on a training company buy the Mike Meyers all in one exam guide for the A+ and read through it take notes and when you understand and feel ready take the exams.

    Its cheaper and you dont get any BS like we will get you job for million pounds a year after you do this course which will take 6 days or something to that effect

    I have a old pc to use,but the only thing that is worrying me id that my understanding of the technical vocabulary isn't very good and I tested the course material with home learning college and was kind of baffled by what the book was saying.Have you read this book and does it explain things in detail,and what about the exams how would I book them?
    Thanks Nick

    Everything you could possibly need to know about the A+ is the Mike Meyers all in one guide 6th edition (make sure you get the 6th edition as the have just changed the exams)

    Terminology is explained and it names the exam test centre companies websites so you can find your local test centre on the net.

    You dont have to be a genius or know much about computers at all you just need to be able to study.

    I have just started doing the A+ by reading through the book and then going through again taking notes it couldnt be any more simple.
