Hi,

I'm looking for some advice on rather or not to buy this book for a beginner entrance level into the IT field for A+ Comp. There are many books out there, but I wanted to find the "right" and best one for someone who is intermediate in computers and wishes to earn a certificate in A+ Comp.

Thanks,

Tyler

One more thing, I was wondering if anyone out there knew of any programs on the Internet, etc, that had labs for computing. Kind of hands on stuff. Thanks again.

I bought that... It's umm how do you put it... Not worth it (look on Amazon cheaper), allot of it you probably know. I am still reading it also, but most of it I already known. But if you don't know much about computers, it's a good set. I have learned a number of things, others I just learned in more detail. So I am learning stuff, but I don't think I would buy the entire set again. Just get Comptia A+ Compete book, none of the others. Also read the guide sticked above. It's a very good guide.

Would you consider this an adequate source of information for A+ Comp. Looked it up online and this is what showed up while looking up your word.

Scott Mueller writes some good tech books. I second that recommendations.

I also nominate the Exam Cram books. I've used them to study for A+ and Network+ certs. They're easy to read and very full of good info.

Of course, just reading the book isn't going to really prepare you for the exams. If you don't have a computer you're willing to work on, then get some old beater rig to take apart, swap parts, and don't be afraid to screw it up. It WILL happen.
