    :) Hi Guys:

    can anyone recommend the best books / texts for the A+ from the following:
    I want a book that will be useful after I pass the exam, just not to get me thru the exam, i.e, for future reference!

    Meyer's is the daddy when it comes to A+ and you can't go wrong with that one.

    The Technician Street Smarts is also supposed to be very good.

    GL with the A+ matey.

    I'll add my vote for the already recommended Meyer's book, as well as James Pyles Technician Street Smarts book.

    I used ExamCram2 A+ & the A+ book of Questions to pass A+ 1st time.
    But that said the other books mentioned are good.
    Just i was very poor at the time & the ExamCram2 books were cheaper!!:oops:
