    I agree with LearnKey, i know a tutor who has it but whether he can help me out is another question, and with regards to Test Out, my mate has it so i will be getting it... :D

    i dont know about you but training videos are very watered down.. to me they replace classroom work given by training providers... i mainly use books but if you enjoy videos then why not.. just remember the videos wont have every piece of info in them! :dry

    Good Point! At least i will refresh my mem on some of the older topic and i might learn something which i never knew about, well thats what i am hoping anyway...

    If i cant get the LearnKey, then i guess i'll use this...

    For me, this will be better than actually reading, which i found was easier aswell, i might not watch all of the video but definately would be listening to it...

    just keep in mind not to drag it on too long.. there is a rumour that an upgrade for a+ is due so keep your eyes glued at comptia's site and get the book ASAP its huge and will take a while to read!

    I had a gander at TestOut and thought it was excellent.There were oodles of OS simulators,hardware and software labs and just about every subject was covered to some degree.I'm not sure how well it works (I'm using CBT Nuggets for the video training) but it looked pretty damned good from where I was sat.Give it a go,see if it's the right material for you and most definately purchase MM's book,'tis the A+ book to get.
