The best A+ certification guide in the field just got better. Because let's face it; in terms of walking you through the computer from the ground up, there wasn't anything better out there. Michael Meyers' A+ All-In-One Certification Exam Guide goes beyond the normal testable topics and really wants you to know what problems you're likely to face as an actual technician in the real world. Meyers gives lots of hands-on advice, frankly admitting that this topic is still tested but he's not quite sure why, telling you that power supplies can be repaired (and should be) even if the test says otherwise, and generally giving copious examples from his tech experience to show "what can go wrong."
In fact, if a major criticism can be levelled at this book nowadays, it's that it might go a bit too in-depth at times; Meyers' zeal to show you everything he knows about computers, makes it possible to get lost in the wealth of information and not focus on critically tested subjects. But keep in mind that if you even truly understand 60 per cent of this book, you'll pass the exam with flying colours--it's that good.
The book has 10 questions at the end of every chapter, which aren't modelled specifically after the A+ exam, but they are fairly tough questions nonetheless. There's also a CD with the standard array of video clips and test questions, but it has several tech utilities that Meyers himself recommends--a great value.
In short, this is simply one of the best test-prep books on the market for any exam, and it's also one of the few books that's completely honest: It is, when it comes down to it, an all-in-one guide. Buy this and you will pass. Highly recommended. --William SteinmetzAbout the Author:
