    This appears to be a boxed set, and includes the popular 'Street Smarts' from our very own Trip!
    I can't speak for the other books in the box, but the usual suggestion here is to get the Mike Meyers All-in-one as well as the Street Smarts book.

    And those two would be cheaper than this boxed set.

    Wiley books are normally quite good, however Mike Meyers are normally the book for the A+ :)

    I'm somewhat biased because my book happens to be one of the books contained in the boxed set you reference. One of the things I noticed is that it hadn't been reviewed at Amazon.co.uk but has at Amazon.com:

    http://www.amazon.com/CompTIA-Compl...bs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1220367983&sr=1-1

    Reviews are there to help buyers decide if a book is worth buying (and I should know...I write enough reviews). That said, I'm somewhat morally bound not to recommend a book set just because I might profit by it. The Mike Meyers book is considered the gold standard of A+ certification books, so you certainly couldn't go wrong.

    On the other hand, if you need a good, practical lab book that provides real-world examples of A+ tasks and skills, there *is* a book that provides what the Meyers book lacks... :rolleyes::biggrin
