    A+ Incomplete Study Guide

    I recommend you don't buy this book. Its a whopping 848 pages, where there are other books that do a better job of covering the material for the actual test in less space. The book is filled with factual and grammatical errors. Sometimes a statistic such as hard drive transfer speed will be printed as two different things at different pages in the book. This makes reading the book tiring and confusing, as time is spent trying to comprehend what the author is saying. The book is also outdated. It discusses punch cards, daisy wheel printers, and even DOS and Windows 3.1, but it doesn't have the latest material that you need to pass the exam. If you want a better guide to pass the A+ exams, I suggest you get A+ Adaptive Exams by Chris Crayton. This book is just a waste of money.
