    CompTIA A+ AIO Cert for dummies or buy the Mike Meyers guide.

    I briefly started reading the Dummies guide last year but had to put my studying on hold for personal reasons. I am now planning to start studying again in the next couple of weeks and am wondering if I should carry on with the Dummies guide or buy the Mike Meyers AIO?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Matt

    P.S - I also have the CBT Nuggets and Professor Messer videos to aid my studying.

    Definately buy the Mike Meyers AIO guide. I used it to pass the A+, as did a lot of others on these forums.

    The dummies doesn't contain enough depth of info that you need for the exams.

    Good luck with the studying.

    Well, it looks like im buying the MM book, lol!

    Just one question though, i noticed on amazon that there is another book due in November (Windows 7 guide). Is this just an add-on that will cover only Windows 7 material or will it be 8th AIO edition?

    Many thanks again guys

    Yeah, looks like an add-on/update to cover Windows 7 topics. If you look at how many pages it has it's only 432.

    The main book you want is much bigger at 1376 pages - CompTIA A+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide, Seventh Edition (Exams 220-701 & 220-702
