    I am currently using the 2005 edition Sybex book to study for network +. I've just started this book but I would like to know if it's worth getting the All in One N+ book.


    I used the A+ equivalent of this book a few years ago to pass.
    Is it worth using 2 books or should I not bother?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    you should never use just one study material, the Network + book by David Groth is supposed to be the best. I have it and and also the Meyers one you have.http://www.amazon.com/Network-Study-Guide-David-Groth/dp/0782144063

    I bought and recently finished both the books. The N+ Meyers book is very good at introducing all the topics, whereas I feel the Sybex gives you a lot more details about each of the topics. Can't go wrong with both- especially since you get all the extra questions!

    I used Sybex's Network+ study guide. It helped a lot, then again I was also in the middle of a TCP/IP course at the time I took the exam. So I'd recommend using a second source of study with Sybex...
    But that's just me...

    I prefered the Mike Meyers Book for readbility but the Sybex book is probably the better of the two for info. Its probably best to have both IMO
