    Hi Guys,

    Sorry to start another thread on "What N+ book", but Im having trouble deciding which book to get?

    Its seems to be either Groths or Meyers - Which one is recommend or are they both just as good?

    Reason I ask is because I could only afford to buy one book, but not sure which one?

    Cheers

    Hmm, this will start a debate but I would recommend the Myers all in one book over Groth. It has a lot more detail than the Groth book and I found it an easier read. However, I realise you said you can only afford one but you might want to see if you can get both as I think they complement each other pretty well - maybe one now and the other when you've finished reading the one you got. Gives you time to get the money together.

    I got the Sybex N+ box set. Very good it has been so far!

    Personally I really like the Fast Pass book in the set. I got the A+ set too and found the Fast Pass book was brilliant.

    Plus in both sets you get the Street Smarts books. Both are excellent full of step by step guides on solving the most common problems in the real world.

    If you can plump for the box set, I'd highly recommend it. Great VFM!
