    Hi folks,

    I joined this resourceful site some 11 months ago when i was about to embark on the MCSE course through one of the major TV advertised companies. After posting just once i recieved countless replies which saved me 4k and many sleepless nights ! Thanks everyone.
    Anyway this time im wondering if anybody could advise me on a reputable course provider as i plan to go down the CompTIA A+ route, also what material should be provided in the package ?

    Regards Coco.

    Well the first thought is - if you were saved from spending lots of money before on a course, why consider it again? :biggrin

    You could always do-it-yourself, and just buy some books and an old PC to mess about with.

    What have you been doing over the past 11 months? You could have passed the A+ and Network+ by using some good books in that time :biggrin

    Yep i got to agree with the pervious posters, for CompTIA A+ the self study route is the best for most and the cheapest :biggrin .

    Agree with the rest - self-study's the way to go.

    dude if you passed MCSE on your own, you won't have a promble with A+ N+ do it yourself.

    You can start here for A+ book By our very own super mod tripwire.

    Have to say, I have this book and am very happy with it. While it not a big tome that you would use for a door stop after you taken your exam. This one gets down to the basic and allows you to do the hands on right away. Explains in a plain and understandable way that doesn't have your eyes crossing going "what the hell does that mean?" This one is on my desk and will stay there till it time to update again.

    Network + I would go with sybex. I was really happy with that one when I did it. The street smart series, does have one for N+, but i've never seen it so I can't nor won't vouge for it.

    Where boyce at? He knows what network + book I'm talking about. He used it to study his.

    Hi there,

    I used the Network + book by Sybex. I found it very good for learning the material, passing the exam and one to keep for a *on the job* reference.

    Hope this helps.
