Hi all,

I acquired me a new job and my new boss has given me a 90-probation to pass the A+ exam. I am pretty knowledgeable in the field of IT but I was never really certified. I gain most of my IT knowledge reading extensively on computer forums and getting hands-on experience. I really like computer forums because they are very informative and the troubleshooting experiences and tips are based on real-world scenarios.

To me, Id take experience over anything. But anyway, I was looking at amazon at this book:
http://www.amazon.com/Certification-All ... 307&sr=1-1

Does anyone have this book? Is there a better book? Feel free to recommend the books youve read for the exam, and specially A+ exam questions!!! Thanks a ton!

I have read that one (among others) and found it to be a great book. Alas, I never did get my A+ cert, mostly because I was too chicken and afraid I would fail, but I can say it was one of the better books I had. I also ha dthe CompTIA Practice Questions: http://tiny.cc/ZWxel Since I never took the A+ I can't say how reliable it is, but from the knowledge I had, it seemed like a great review book. I have read the Dummies book also, decent review book, nothing more.

Please read Sheldon's sticky regarding A+ certs. It is the first thread in this forum and is quite detailed. If you still have questions, come back and ask 'em.
