Overview

This comprehensive certification solution not only provides thorough preparation for CompTIA's A+ 2009 certification but also provides you with real-world instruction on everything you need to know to support and troubleshoot computer hardware and software. Updated to include the most current technologies, with a new chapter on securing your PC and small network, CompTIA A+ 2009 In Depth takes you from the "just-a-user" level to the "I-can-fix-this" level on all PC hardware and software matters. Coverage is balanced. While focusing on new hardware and software, the text also covers the real work of PC repair, where some older technology remains in widespread use and still needs support. This new edition also has increased focus on Windows Vista and XP, organized by function (such as installing, maintaining, optimizing, and fixing). All the content that relates to CompTIA's A+ 2009 Essentials 220-701 and Practical Application 220-702 certification exams is highlighted with an A+ icon that denotes the exam name and the objective number that the content refers to. In addition, this revised version includes substantial content updates for currency, in order to keep pace with the latest technology, both hardware and software. CompTIA A+ 2009 In Depth is a text you'll be sure to refer to again and again, long after you've passed the exam.

    "In Depth" . . . too Much Depth?

    This book does the job which it is supposed to; it prepares the reader for the CompTIA A+ certification exams. However, it goes into far more depth on it's subject matter than the exams do. This, I suppose, it not really a bad thing, but it was a tad of a time-waster for me. To be fair, it is very well written and has unusually well-constructed prose for a technical volume.

    My personal experience was that, after taking computers apart and putting them back together as a hobby for most of my life, I could have pretty much walked in off of the street with no preparation and passed the CompTIA exams. Nonetheless, a lot of material in this book was new to me. After reading it, I achieved a nearly perfect score.

    Good enough

    I passed the test, so that says something about the book. I also had prior experience and that helped just as much as the book did. For someone who is fresh to this material, I don't think that this book alone will help you pass. For those that have experience with troubleshooting computers, this will give you a decent idea of the type of content that you will find in the exam. Still though, there were many questions on the exam that were not covered in the book.

    It's good enough to use as a study guide to achieve a passing grade, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were better materials out there.
