    Hi

    Finished reading/studying Mike Meyers book (good read) and I'm looking for practice exams to up my test scores.

    Anyone used or would recommend the Mike Meyers Total Seminar exams or Boson exams?

    Mikes is $125 and Boson $189. The price is a little factor because I've still got the two exams to pay for. But a high quality practice exam tool has to be the big factor. What are peoples thoughts?

    Also could anyone recommended any exam test/question books?

    Thanks

    Hi Andylad9,
    I haven't used the Boson practice exams for the A+, but used Boson for the Security+ exam and found them to excellent, with good explanations of why an answer is right or wrong.

    I was suspicious at the price so I ran the URL through certguard. Certguard, he say yes.

    I have to add though, I've obviously not taken every practice exam on the market, but I'd be surprised if you got any non-braindump practice exam that was as close to the real thing as Boson's effort.

    Thanks for all the advice.

    I'm going to book my exam soon. What are peoples thoughts on doing both exams all on the one day? Good or bad idea?

    I can't find a test center open on weekends and so I need a day off from work to take them. I'm in a new job and so don't have many.

    thanks

    There is so much over-lap most people do it on the same day or within the same week. It is easier if it is fresh in your mind so might as well.

    Good luck with it Andy!
