    Hello Flare,

    Well done on starting your journey to Comptia A+

    First of all I would recommend you download/print off the A+ Objectives this will take you to thread by Zimbo which has links to the latest A+ objectives8)

    Once you've got the Objectives I tend to read through them and re-write them as question, it gives you an idea of what to focus on!

    Secondly I recommend this website for A+ Essentials 2006 Study Guide and tips

    Third, get yourself a "how to study" book. Mike meyers book is concise and (very large) a lot of people including myself lose motivation when trying to study from this book due to life's distractions or boredoom of reading from such a big book!!

    Have a look at the attachment for study skills (a acrobat PDF study skills 50pages long) If it does help then you can buy the book from amazon:- study skills

    Oh Nuts! the attachment is too big to upload I will have to try and find a link to a website!

    Good Luck:thumbleft

    Ahhh...here we go a website called Skill4Study

    Dam it!:ohmy they've taken the link off:rolleyes:

    OK - I have I managed to cut down the size of the PDF .. see attachment for study skills8)

    WTF it's says the max for PDF is 5MB and yet despite cutting the file size down from 5.12MB to 3.08MB I still can't upload?:blink

    After clearing out my attachments - 3rd time luckly??

    I'm greeted with this message:-

    If you've sent the email, maybe you boys want to edit your post so the poor lad's email addy doesn't get picked up by the bots?

    UCHEEKYMONKEY could you please send me the same file by e-mail?

    I just purchased from amazon Comptia A+ all in one 6th edition from M M and PC Technician street smarts as well so I am starting my new A+ certification and could also use some pointers.
    Cheers
