    Hi Folks,

    I joined here few weeks ago as I have been looking to study and change careers. After all the research I did on here I have decided to self study for A+ as I am self motivated. From reading old posts most people seem to recommend Mike Meyers A+ all in one book but I am a bit confused with all the different objectives and editions etc. I would appreciate it if anyone can advise me what book I should purchase and apart from an old pc to mess about with what else I should buy.

    Thanks to this forum I have saved myself a fortune already by not going with training providers and going down the self study route. If a lot of people on here can self study and pass there is hope for me as well.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I think I will wait for the Mike Meyers book to be available in UK and then buy it and start self studying.
