    CBT's, guides & practice questions from CBTNuggets, Learnkey, Preplogic, Boson, Transcender etc are normally quite good.

    A website thatyou may want to look at is Proprofs.

    Can they provide any hard copy materials?? I find it a lot better reading from a book for an hour or 2 rather than a computer screen, as it's less strain on the eyes, and saves headaces. This may just be me though :( but that's a reason I canceled my option to study the A+ course with Aberdeen college, which was an online course. They didn't pay for the industry recognized qualification, but they did send out a certificate of competence once completed. I would have sat and looked at the screen for hours doing it, which I wasn't too keen on. It's always best to ask colleges that offer online courses, if there are hard copy materials they can send you,that don't require traveling 20-30 or however many miles to their campus librarys, which colleges will offer.

    Or you can get a printer, and simply print out all the information from proprofs site, that Wagnerk suggested, which is a good site, but get buying plenty of paper, and ink catridges, which will probably cost around the same as books and so on, either way, or 6 and half a dozen as my mum always says

    you can print the proprofs site but they don't do hard copies. Cramssession do hard copies and they are quite good too.

    everyone learn in different ways.
    Try http://www.netwind.com
    It is not bad but not as much in details as I wish, but give you good hierarchical and systematical way of studying. Even so they advice to have a book too, which is "Comptia A+ in Depth" by Andrews. A bit different than Mike Meyers point of view if someone does not prefer his book.
    Another online course is http://www.testout.com
    Good luck....
