This is a good book for the money and you will learn alot even if your already know most of the meterial. I wish there where more CompTIA structure to the practice tests. The real test is much harder.

I just passed my A+ 2003 Certification using this study guide. The review questions, practice exams, and electronic flashcards really helped with the actual test questions. Pay very close attention to the second part of the book which covered Operating Systems and you should pass the test. I was not very satisfied with my test score on the Operating Systems Technologies part despite passing it, but when I went back to verify if the Sybex A+ book included the information, they did. Thanks Sybex! Due to you I now have my A+ Certification 2003.
