The Ultimate CompTIA A+ Resource Kit provides three ways to prepare and study for the A+ exam - a comprehensive book, easy-to-use flashcards, and an interactive, computer-based training CD. The A+ In Depth book not only provides thorough preparation for CompTIA's latest A+ certification exams but also provides real-world instruction on everything you will need to know to support and troubleshoot computer hardware and software. The flashcards contain an exam-based question on one side with the answer on the other, as well as the source chapter within the book where the topic can be found, all to help encourage good self-study habits. And, the kit's CD-ROM provides four exam simulations for each test and drill-downs for each exam objective to further test your knowledge as you go and to give you an impression of how you'll fare on test day. The Ultimate CompTIA A+ Resource Kit's combination of study material and test preparation questions provides the all-inclusive resource for exam success that you need to succeed.
