I am sure its been asked a billion times. I am experienced, whats the best book/self taught materials out there. I assume there is something to buy from Amazon.

    For folks who are confident, one simply need to download the objectives from CompTIA.

    If one cares about getting the lingo down more confidently, then I'd invest in Meyers' All-in-One or the Sybex text. If you are familiar with CompTIA lingo, then a crambook or passport book will be a good idea.

    Personally, I invest in the book and download free objectives from the vendor of the exam. That's the quickest IMO.

    What type of 'experience' do you have?

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?

    In addition to Professor Messer's videos I would suggest grabbing the A+ Exam Cram by David Prowse; which you can get on Amazon.

    Thanks guys. About 20 yrs most on the NW side, actually a little of everything. I was a Service Desk Manager for the last 4 yrs then laid off in June do to a company buy out. I have had about 3 phone interviews screenings and when I said I didn't have A+ it was quickly over.

    Hello Everybody

    I need advice .

    I studied a software course at college for one year(software specialist.or software desktop support)

    I haven't been able to find a job.

    I have no experience.

    I'm thinking of doing a+ next year.

    Will it help me to land a job?

    It feels like the course I take was completely useless .

    Thanks .
