I am going to start studying for the 901/902 A+ exams, whilst I do already work in IT I do not touch hardware, I mainly deal with things at an OS level and tbh I have been in IT under 3 months. I would like to get the A+ not only for future prospects but to actually learn some new things that can help me in my current job. I bought the Mike Meyers all in one but but I have no idea how to use this as a study tool.. its ridiculously thick, how would I even go about making notes from such a giant piece of literature? I really need some tips on how to do this effectively. I am also going to use Professor Messer videos, and will be purchasing the Mike Meyers 901/02 course soon (he is currently still developing it). Honestly any revision advice would be appreciated.

    My method was to read the Exam Cram 6th Edition by David Prowse (800 Series) and along the way, take notes. It is a big book also and it took me 3-4 weeks to study for this exam. After I read the entire book, I would just do practice questions from the CD included in his book, CompTIA sample questions, and I would also look over my notes, written notes and ones that I typed.

    Then for the things that need visuals, I would refer to Professor Messer but I used his videos last so I couldn't finish them all, though they were great they were a little long for me. If you have IT experience, I don't think this exam will be too tough, just gotta get yourself mentally ready for the wealth of information, that's all.
