CompTIA's popular A+ certification has been thoroughly revamped: Now you must pass an Essentials exam, plus any of three "Advanced" exams: Depot Technician, Technical Support Technician, or IT Technician. There's significant overlap among these advanced exams, and you might not yet know which one to take. So it makes sense to get a book that covers them all, thoroughly and well: CompTIA A+ Exam Cram.
The Exam Cram books pioneered the certification study guide category, and they're still well-deserved leaders. This title offers more than 1,200 pages of up-to-date content: from ports and peripherals to advanced troubleshooting and upgrades, networking and security to customer service. There are loads of practice questions, in the chapters and on CD-ROM. We especially like these two features: hundreds of "Exam Alerts" pointing out knowledge areas you should especially focus on, and new "Challenges" that apply what you're learning in real-world situations.
