    Good luck with the studying :study

    I’ve done that! :ohmy
    Not that I condone it, but I seem to remember better when I’m doing multiple things. I don’t do it anymore – I have kids now, responsibility first. Found other ways for effective studying :)

    Read Micheal Meyers book from cover to cover and you have no problem understanding the concept of how computers work. Also it is important to set youself target of how many pages you are going to read a day and stick to that plan.

    Good in your studies

    I'd recommend downloading the eBook now from a bittorrent website, as this would now be legal because you own an original copy. It's what I've done and the eBook is split into chapters.

    Hi all, I have recently started the A+ at my local college doing one night a week. The books they provide are from a "gts learning", are these books any good or should I invest in the M Meyers book aswell?

    no it comes with a cd that has practice exams on it, along with a demo of the video training with Mike Meyers, a glossary of terms you will need to know and some free software like cpu-z and the like.
