    Hello everyone!


    Ive had 8 years experience as a technician and Im looking to start my study for hardware A+.
    I am wondering what is the latest and greatest book to read? I hear Mike Meyers is the best, but does it cover the latest technology? I have flipped through a freinds book, but it talks about PIII's as being the most recent form of CPU...
    I would like at least for it to cover technologies such as Serial ATA etc.

    If Mike Meyers turns out to be the best, which particular book should I buy for Hardware A+?

    Thankyou very much for your advice :)

    G'day Eman, you hit the nail on the head with the Mike Meyers book. I think the latest version is 5th(?) edition.

    Hello Eman...I have heard about Mr Meyers but never read his book but the book I just read for my A+ is called A+ Complete Study Guide by David Groth and Sybex. It covers all the objectives and its the latest one (so it should be as it cost me nearly £40!!) but it explains everything upto P4, Athlon XPs and Win XP so you should be alright with that one. but take your pick.

    You can try pick up Upgrading and Repairing PCs from Scot Mueller.
