    although i've been studying A+ electronically. i can now offically say the learning has begun.
    as of 3 minutes ago i ordered 2 books off amazon (and paid £9 shipping, man am i mental but its for next day before 1pm which is perfect, as i'll get it when i'm not at work! otherwise i am sure they would have been stolen)

    the books i ordered were:

    A+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide, Sixth Edition (All-In-One)
    Mike Meyers; Hardcover; £17.48

    PC Technician Street Smarts: A Real World Guide to CompTIA A+® Skills: A Real World Guide to CompTIA A+ Skills
    James Pyles; Paperback; £12.99

    so tomorrow will be a wonderful day as i can study off paper instead of a lcd screen. (which for me is comfort as at home i use a coffee table as a desk.... i do need to sort that lol)

    but a thanks to the people on this board, as i would have been lost on what to buy otherwise and brought crap, wasted money and ever given up or been naughty and aquired it online.
    but now i can feel safe and warm that i've got the books i need, and its 100% legal.
    so thanks guys and gals. next to come in my many questions i am sure that will arise during my studies

    If you have not done already google A+.
    Plenty of sites offering advice & mock tests, of course apart from this excellent site.:D
    And it's often a way to gauge how well or bad your doing.

    Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of sites offering mock tests are, in fact, resources to help you cheat on the exam by offering the actual exam questions. If you use them, you can get decertified for life. Not worth the risk to your career.

    I'd recommend that you stick with trusted resources, like what you just bought. Learn the right way, and you won't regret it. :)

    The Meyers book comes with a CD containing mock testing software so that's a good place to start. Thanks for buying the PC Street Smarts book. Hope it's helpful. :)
