    Ive heard you all say get the meyers book for the a+, but which one? I went to the bookshop today and there was two [​IMG]

    A+ all in one i think, which was about 45 quid and the a+ certification passport which was 20 quid.

    I'm sure the A+ all-in-one is the one your after quackers, but I'm not entirely sure of the difference (apart from ~£20), as I have never seen the passport book.


    HTH :D

    I think that if you follow the link on the front page of the forum and search for A+ you will find the books on Amazon. Using this link will generate a bit of income for the site.

    Just been in waterstones this afternoon reading it, I'm going to start working through it.

    A word of advise, it's £40 in waterstones. Checked on amazon when I got back and it's around £25-28 I think, so I'm ordering it from there.

    Don't forget to check on the publication dates. Flex told me his MM al in one only covers Win2000 and not a word about XP whereas my MM certification passport (2nd ed.) covers all of it.

    The one I was reading was the 5th edition, and does cover XP, same as one on amazon.

    Although it is only based on 2003 information. I don't know whether a newer 6th edition is in the pipeline, which may be covers 2004 test information.

    Man I love that shop.Don't think I've ever been into town without nipping into waterstones at some point lol.Could spend days in there looking around.
    The IT books are expensive though, so I'd never buy them from there.

    I've just purchased the exam cram book to complement my Mike Myers book.
    I feel that the Mike Meyers book isn't very good for last minute revision because of the size of the book, and you can't really carry it around with you easily.
    I bought the exam cram 2 book because it's more up to date, and I feel that I need something I can carry around (take into work, leave on my desk inconspicuously) when I just want to reference raw facts and objectives.

    I'd recommend that you purchase this book also.

    I met a guy in waterstones while I was looking at the Mike Meyers book, and he recommended the exam cram book, and the compTIA book over the Mike Meyers. I got chatting with him, and found out that he'd done the A+, NET+, and cisco course by using just the work books, and sample tests.

    He even showed my the little laminated card you get from cisco when you pass the course to prove you are certified.....or certifiable!!!!:D

    Does anyone have any experience with these other books?

    I saw a PC Reference Book at PC World the other day for A+ it was quite small and seemed like an ideal book to get but then I looked thru it and thought maybe I dont really need it as I have my 900 page A+ book I can sift thru if and when I need to...but I was thinking maybe it would be agood idea to get it...what do you guys think?

    Also, a small(ish) reference book is invaluable, and preferable to lugging the "tome" around jobs. Handy addition to any toolkit.


    ...says Gav with the 215 Server and CCNA books next to my desk at work...:oops:
