    I prefer Meyers, but the decision is ultimately yours. :)

    Most people prefer the Mike Meyers book, I personally used the Sybex book and it worked out pretty good for me, it appears that they are both on about the same level, one has some info the other doesn't and vice versa, so if you can afford it I recommend getting both. It is never a great idea to use just one study material for these exams.

    Studying from multiple sources is a good rule of thumb for any exam, not just the A+. :)

    always use two I recommended the Meyers book and PC Technician street smarts to you on your intro thread. The Meyers book will cover everything you need to know and the PC Technician street smarts book will take you through exercises like how to install a PSU or tweak windows.
